3 Tricks To Teach Your Miniature Schnauzer

To teach your Miniature Schnauzer tricks, even the easy ones, you need to provide some small snacks, teach him in a remote suitable location and always keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Miniature Schnauzer will start to get bored. Always remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just take care not to get him extremely ecstatic or he may possibly lose concentration.

Teach your Miniature Schnauzer to give you his paw

To train your Miniature Schnauzer to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Next do it again, and after a few practices do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You need to see that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After a few sessions most Miniature Schnauzers pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Miniature Schnauzer to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a more basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your two fingers and raise your hand just a bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Miniature Schnauzer will believe you want to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we trained him earlier. As he reaches up you state “high 5” and offer him the treat. Once your Miniature Schnauzer has actually mastered the paw trick this one will likely be extremely easy to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Miniature Schnauzer to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high up as you do not want your Miniature Schnauzer to injure himself while doing the trick. Place your Miniature Schnauzer to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Miniature Schnauzer the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or beneath the hoop. When this occurs start once again. Your Miniature Schnauzer wants the snack and will quickly find out that going around or underneath does not get it done so he will soon start going through it. The minute he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually increased it to waist high. On the occasion that you possess a smaller sized dog you may want to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it more once he gets used to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Miniature Schnauzer. Have patience with your Miniature Schnauzer and most of all, have a good time!
