To teach your Kintamani tricks, even simple ones, you should get hold of some delicious snacks, be in a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Kintamani will start to get bored. Take note that when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, though beware not to get him over fired up or he might lose focus.
Teach your Kintamani to offer you his paw
To teach your Kintamani to give 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. After that do this again, and after a couple of practices don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You ought to discover that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most Kintamanis pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Kintamani to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of a simpler trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand just a bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Kintamani will believe you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we had trained him earlier. Once he rises you state “high five” and give him the snack. As soon as your Kintamani has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be extremely simple to understand and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your Kintamani to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not want your Kintamani to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Kintamani on one side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Kintamani the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to walk around or underneath the hoop. When this happens begin again. Your Kintamani desires the treat and will soon discover that going around or underneath doesn’t work so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing 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 high. On the occasion that you have a smaller sized dog you may wish to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it more as he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Kintamani. Have patience with your Kintamani and most of all, have fun!
