3 Tricks To Teach Your King Shepherd

To teach your King Shepherd tricks, even easy ones, you should get hold of some good treats, go to a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the coaching sessions to under 15 minutes or your King Shepherd will begin to get bored. Always remember when he gets something right offer him lots of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him excessively thrilled or he might lose focus.

Teach your King Shepherd to give you his paw

To teach your King Shepherd to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. Then do this again, and after a couple of times do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You should see that he is raising his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After a few sessions most King Shepherds pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your King Shepherd to give you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your two fingers and lift your hand just a bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your King Shepherd will presume you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you state “high five” and give your King Shepherd the treat. As soon as your King Shepherd has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be extremely simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your King Shepherd to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your King Shepherd to injure himself while doing the trick. Set your King Shepherd on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the King Shepherd the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to walk around or underneath the hoop. If this takes place begin again. Your King Shepherd desires the treat and will soon discover that going around or beneath does not work so he’ll quickly start going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I 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 height. In the case that you have a smaller dog you might want to begin with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it once he gets used to the trick.

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