To teach your Alaskan Klee Kai tricks, even easy ones, you need to get some of his favorite treats, be in an obscure suitable place and manage to keep the learning sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Alaskan Klee Kai will begin to get tired. Don’t forget that when he gets something right offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just be careful not to get him overly fired up or he may perhaps lose focus.
Teach your Alaskan Klee Kai to give you his paw
To teach your Alaskan Klee Kai to give you his paw, initially 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 times do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You need to observe that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After just a few sessions most Alaskan Klee Kais pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Alaskan Klee Kai to give you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a simpler trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Alaskan Klee Kai will presume you desire to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we trained him previously. Once he rises you state “high 5” and offer your Alaskan Klee Kai the treat. As soon as your Alaskan Klee Kai has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be really simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Alaskan Klee Kai to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you do not want your Alaskan Klee Kai to injure himself while performing the trick. Place your Alaskan Klee Kai to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Alaskan Klee Kai the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he may try to walk around or beneath the hula hoop. When this takes place begin again. Your Alaskan Klee Kai wants the snack and will quickly find out that walking around or below does not work so he will quickly begin going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop on 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 floor and gradually lifted it to waist height. In the case that you have a smaller sized dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it more as he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Alaskan Klee Kai. Have patience with your Alaskan Klee Kai and most importantly, have a good time!
