3 Tricks To Teach Your Peruvian Hairless Dog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Peruvian Hairless Dog

To teach your Peruvian Hairless Dog tricks, even simple ones, you should provide some delicious treats, be in a quiet suitable location and hold the training sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Peruvian Hairless Dog will start to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, yet take care not to get him excessively thrilled or he will lose focus.

Teach your Peruvian Hairless Dog to give you his paw

To train your Peruvian Hairless Dog to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. And then do this again, and after a few successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You must observe that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After two or three sessions most Peruvian Hairless Dogs pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Peruvian Hairless Dog to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Peruvian Hairless Dog will assume you wish to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had trained him earlier. As he rises you state “high five” and give your Peruvian Hairless Dog the treat. When your Peruvian Hairless Dog has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be extremely easy to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Peruvian Hairless Dog to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not want your Peruvian Hairless Dog to injure himself while practicing the trick. Set your Peruvian Hairless Dog on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Peruvian Hairless Dog the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to go around or beneath the hula hoop. If this occurs begin again. Your Peruvian Hairless Dog wants the treat and will quickly learn that going around or beneath does not get it done so he will soon start going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist height. In the event that you own a smaller dog you may wish to begin with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it more as he gets used to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Peruvian Hairless Dog. Have patience with your Peruvian Hairless Dog and most importantly, have fun!
