To teach your Porcelaine tricks, even the simple ones, you should provide some delicious snacks, teach him in a remote suitable place and try to keep the coaching sessions to under 15 minutes or your Porcelaine will begin to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, just be cautious not to get him over ecstatic or he may lose concentration.
Teach your Porcelaine to give you his paw
To get your Porcelaine to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. After that do this again, and after a couple of tries don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You ought to observe that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Porcelaines pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Porcelaine to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and lift your hand just a bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Porcelaine will think you wish to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we taught him previously. While he reaches up you state “high five” and give your Porcelaine the snack. As soon as your Porcelaine has mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be very easy to learn and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.
Teach your Porcelaine to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not want your Porcelaine to harm himself while practicing the trick. Set your Porcelaine to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Porcelaine the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might try to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place begin again. Your Porcelaine wants the snack and will soon find out that going around or under does not work so he’ll quickly begin going through it. When he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly raised it to waist height. In the case that you possess a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Porcelaine. Have patience with your Porcelaine and most importantly, have a good time!
