To teach your Chippiparai tricks, even the simple ones, you should provide some small snacks, go to a quiet suitable location and manage to keep the teaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Chippiparai will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something right offer him lots of praise and a reward treat, however beware not to get him extremely fired up or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Chippiparai to give you his paw
To get your Chippiparai to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. After that do this again, and after a few practices do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You ought to notice that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Chippiparais pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Chippiparai to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and lift your hand a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Chippiparai will presume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we taught him earlier. As he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the snack. As soon as your Chippiparai has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be very simple to master and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your Chippiparai to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Chippiparai to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Chippiparai to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Chippiparai the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he may try to go around or underneath the hoop. If this happens begin once again. Your Chippiparai wants the treat and will quickly learn that going around or under does not get it so he’ll quickly start going through it. The minute he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist height. In case you own a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Chippiparai. Have patience with your Chippiparai and most importantly, have a good time!
