To teach your Doberman Pinscher tricks, even easy ones, you need to get some of his favorite treats, go to a remote suitable place and maintain the training sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Doberman Pinscher will start to get tired. Just remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, though take care not to get him excessively thrilled or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Doberman Pinscher to give you his paw
To get your Doberman Pinscher to offer 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 snack. And then do it again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You should observe that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After a couple of sessions most Doberman Pinschers pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Doberman Pinscher to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Doberman Pinscher will assume you desire to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had taught him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the snack. When your Doberman Pinscher has actually mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be very easy to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Doberman Pinscher to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Doberman Pinscher to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Doberman Pinscher 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 offer the Doberman Pinscher the command to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to go around or beneath the hoop. In the event that this happens start once again. Your Doberman Pinscher desires the treat and will quickly discover that going around or below does not get it so he’ll soon start going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist high. In case you possess a smaller sized dog you might want to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Doberman Pinscher. Have patience with your Doberman Pinscher and most of all, have fun!
