3 Tricks To Teach Your Himalayan Sheepdog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Himalayan Sheepdog

To teach your Himalayan Sheepdog tricks, even the simple ones, you need to get some savory snacks, take him to an obscure suitable location and hold the instruction sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Himalayan Sheepdog will begin to get tired. Remember when he gets something correct give him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, just take care not to get him excessively thrilled or he might just lose concentration.

Teach your Himalayan Sheepdog to give you his paw

To teach your Himalayan Sheepdog to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. Now repeat this, and after a few times don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You must see that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a couple of sessions most Himalayan Sheepdogs pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Himalayan Sheepdog to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Himalayan Sheepdog will think you want to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we instructed him previously. Once he rises you say “high five” and offer your Himalayan Sheepdog the treat. As soon as your Himalayan Sheepdog has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be really easy to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Himalayan Sheepdog to jump through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Himalayan Sheepdog to harm himself while practicing the trick. Place your Himalayan Sheepdog to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Himalayan Sheepdog the direction to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to walk around or underneath the hoop. If this happens start once again. Your Himalayan Sheepdog desires the snack and will soon discover that going around or beneath does not get it done so he’ll soon start going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started off doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist height. In case you own a smaller dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Himalayan Sheepdog. Have patience with your Himalayan Sheepdog and most of all, have a good time!
