To teach your Cierny Sery tricks, even easy ones, you need to have some small treats, take him to a quiet suitable location and try to keep the training sessions to under 15 minutes or your Cierny Sery will start to get bored. Always remember when he gets something right offer him lots of praise and a reward snack, yet beware not to get him overly fired up or he can lose concentration.
Teach your Cierny Sery to give you his paw
To teach your Cierny Sery to give 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 snack. Now do this again, and after a few practices don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You ought to see that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response once again. After a couple of sessions most Cierny Serys pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Cierny Sery to offer you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand just a little higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Cierny Sery will believe you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we taught him in the prior trick. As he rises you say “high 5” and offer him the treat. As soon as your Cierny Sery has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be extremely easy to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Cierny Sery to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you do not really want your Cierny Sery to harm himself while practicing the trick. Place your Cierny Sery to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Cierny Sery the command to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to go around or below the hula hoop. When this occurs begin again. Your Cierny Sery desires the snack and will quickly learn that going around or beneath doesn’t work so he’ll quickly start going through it. Whenever he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist high. On the occasion that you have a smaller sized dog you may desire to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Cierny Sery. Have patience with your Cierny Sery and above all, have fun!
