3 Tricks To Teach Your Kai Ken
3 Tricks To Teach Your Kai Ken

To teach your Kai Ken tricks, even the simple ones, you should get some small snacks, teach him in an obscure suitable place and manage to keep the teaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Kai Ken will begin to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him lots of praise and a reward snack, just beware not to get him over fired up or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Kai Ken to give you his paw

To train your Kai Ken to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Now repeat this, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You must observe that he is raising his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After two or three sessions most Kai Kens pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Kai Ken to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your two fingers and lift your hand a little higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Kai Ken will expect you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had trained him previously. While he rises you state “high 5” and offer your Kai Ken the treat. Once your Kai Ken has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be extremely easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Kai Ken to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Kai Ken to injure himself while performing the trick. Place your Kai Ken on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Kai Ken the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to walk around or below the hoop. When this happens start once again. Your Kai Ken wants the snack and will soon learn that walking around or below does not get it done so he will soon begin going through it. When he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually increased it to waist height. If you have a smaller sized dog you may wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually elevate it once he gets used to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Kai Ken. Have patience with your Kai Ken and above all, have a good time!
