3 Tricks To Teach Your Swedish Vallhund
3 Tricks To Teach Your Swedish Vallhund

To teach your Swedish Vallhund tricks, even simple ones, you need to have some good treats, be in a quiet suitable location and try to keep the learning sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Swedish Vallhund will start to get bored. Take note that when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just be cautious not to get him extra thrilled or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Swedish Vallhund to offer you his paw

To train your Swedish Vallhund 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 treat. And then do this again, and after a couple of successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You ought to notice that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After a few sessions most Swedish Vallhunds pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Swedish Vallhund to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of a more basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in between your fingers and lift your hand a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Swedish Vallhund will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. As he rises you say “high five” and offer your Swedish Vallhund the treat. When your Swedish Vallhund has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very simple to learn and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.

Teach your Swedish Vallhund to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Swedish Vallhund to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Place your Swedish Vallhund on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Swedish Vallhund the command to stop sitting. Initially he might try to go around or beneath the hoop. In the event that this occurs begin once again. Your Swedish Vallhund desires the treat and will soon find out that going around or below doesn’t work so he will quickly start going through it. The minute he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually brought it to waist high. If you own a smaller dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it more once he gets used to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Swedish Vallhund. Have patience with your Swedish Vallhund and most of all, have fun!
