3 Tricks To Teach Your Hawaiian Poi Dog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Hawaiian Poi Dog

To teach your Hawaiian Poi Dog tricks, even the simple ones, you need to carry some of his favorite treats, be in a remote suitable location and manage to keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Hawaiian Poi Dog will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, however beware not to get him overly thrilled or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Hawaiian Poi Dog to give you his paw

To train your Hawaiian Poi Dog 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. Now do this again, and after a couple of tries do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You should notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After a couple of sessions most Hawaiian Poi Dogs pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Hawaiian Poi Dog to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an easier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and lift your hand somewhat higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Hawaiian Poi Dog will assume you desire to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had taught him in the prior trick. While he reaches up you say “high five” and give your Hawaiian Poi Dog the snack. Once your Hawaiian Poi Dog has mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be very simple to understand and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Hawaiian Poi Dog to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Hawaiian Poi Dog to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Place your Hawaiian Poi Dog on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Hawaiian Poi Dog the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to go around or below the hoop. In the event that this occurs start once again. Your Hawaiian Poi Dog desires the snack and will quickly find out that going around or beneath doesn’t get it so he will quickly start going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned 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 have a smaller sized dog you might wish to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Hawaiian Poi Dog. Have patience with your Hawaiian Poi Dog and most importantly, have a good time!
