To teach your Bohemian Shepherd tricks, even the simple ones, you should carry some small snacks, teach him in a secluded suitable place and try to keep the learning sessions to under 15 minutes or the Bohemian Shepherd will begin to get tired. Remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, though take care not to get him extremely ecstatic or he may possibly lose focus.
Teach your Bohemian Shepherd to offer you his paw
To train your Bohemian Shepherd to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Then repeat this, and after a few times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You should notice that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After just a couple of sessions most Bohemian Shepherds pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Bohemian Shepherd to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your two fingers and lift your hand a little bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Bohemian Shepherd will expect you want to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we had trained him in the previous trick. While he rises you state “high 5” and give your Bohemian Shepherd the snack. Once your Bohemian Shepherd has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be really simple to learn and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your Bohemian Shepherd to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Bohemian Shepherd to injure himself while practicing the trick. Place your Bohemian Shepherd to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Bohemian Shepherd the command to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to walk around or under the hula hoop. If this occurs start once again. Your Bohemian Shepherd wants the treat and will quickly find out that going around or under doesn’t get it done so he’ll soon start going through it. Whenever he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist height. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you might wish to begin with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it more once he gets used to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Bohemian Shepherd. Have patience with your Bohemian Shepherd and above all, have a good time!
