To teach your Pekingese tricks, even simple ones, you should provide some of his favorite treats, be in an obscure suitable place and hold the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Pekingese will start to get tired. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct offer him lots of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him too excited or he might lose concentration.
Teach your Pekingese to offer you his paw
To teach your Pekingese to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Next do this again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You need to discover that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response once again. After just a few sessions most Pekingeses pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Pekingese to offer you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an easier trick, 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 would raise it for the paw trick. Your Pekingese will presume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we trained him in the previous trick. As he reaches up you state “high 5” and offer your Pekingese the snack. When your Pekingese has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be really easy to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of from your voice.
Teach your Pekingese to jump through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Pekingese to injure himself while practicing the trick. Set your Pekingese on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Pekingese the command to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to go around or beneath the hula hoop. In the event that this occurs start once again. Your Pekingese wants the snack and will soon discover that going around or beneath does not work so he’ll quickly start going through it. The moment he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist height. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Pekingese. Have patience with your Pekingese and most of all, have fun!
