To teach your Canadian Eskimo Dog tricks, even the simple ones, you need to get hold of some small treats, go to a quiet suitable location and maintain the learning sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Canadian Eskimo Dog will start to get bored. Always remember when he gets something correct give him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just take care not to get him too thrilled or he will lose focus.
Teach your Canadian Eskimo Dog to offer you his paw
To train your Canadian Eskimo Dog 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. After that do it again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to see that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Canadian Eskimo Dogs pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Canadian Eskimo Dog to give you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in between your fingers and lift your hand a little bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Canadian Eskimo Dog will think you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we instructed him in the previous trick. As he rises you say “high 5” and offer him the treat. As soon as your Canadian Eskimo Dog has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very easy to understand and with just a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of your voice.
Teach your Canadian Eskimo Dog to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Canadian Eskimo Dog to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Canadian Eskimo Dog to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Canadian Eskimo Dog the direction to stop sitting. At first he might attempt to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this occurs begin once again. Your Canadian Eskimo Dog wants the treat and will quickly learn that going around or beneath does not work so he will quickly start going through it. If he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist height. On the occasion that you have a smaller dog you may desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it more once he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Canadian Eskimo Dog. Have patience with your Canadian Eskimo Dog and most importantly, have a good time!
