To teach your Toy Trawler Spaniel tricks, even simple ones, you need to always have some small snacks, be in a remote suitable location and keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Toy Trawler Spaniel will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just be careful not to get him over excited or he might possibly lose focus.
Teach your Toy Trawler Spaniel to offer you his paw
To get your Toy Trawler Spaniel to offer 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 snack. Now do this again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing 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 more times then slow your reaction again. After a couple of sessions most Toy Trawler Spaniels pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Toy Trawler Spaniel to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a simpler trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Toy Trawler Spaniel will expect you want to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we instructed him earlier. Once he rises you state “high 5” and give him the snack. As soon as your Toy Trawler Spaniel has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very simple to master and with just a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.
Teach your Toy Trawler Spaniel 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 really want your Toy Trawler Spaniel to hurt himself while performing the trick. Set your Toy Trawler Spaniel to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Toy Trawler Spaniel the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to go around or under the hula hoop. If this happens start again. Your Toy Trawler Spaniel desires the snack and will quickly find out that walking around or underneath doesn’t get it done so he will quickly start going through it. The minute he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He will soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist height. In the case that you own a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
