To teach your Kromfohrlander tricks, even easy ones, you should carry some of his favorite treats, be in a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the learning sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Kromfohrlander will start to get tired. Bear in mind when he gets something correct give him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, but take care not to get him excessively excited or he might lose concentration.
Teach your Kromfohrlander to give you his paw
To train your Kromfohrlander to give 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. Next do it again, and after a few times don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You need to see that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Kromfohrlanders pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Kromfohrlander to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Kromfohrlander will expect you want to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had taught him earlier. Once he rises you state “high five” and give your Kromfohrlander the snack. As soon as your Kromfohrlander has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be really simple to understand and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Kromfohrlander to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Kromfohrlander to hurt himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Kromfohrlander 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 Kromfohrlander the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to go around or underneath the hoop. When this takes place start again. Your Kromfohrlander desires the treat and will soon find out that going around or underneath doesn’t get it done so he’ll quickly start going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist high. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Kromfohrlander. Have patience with your Kromfohrlander and above all, have a good time!
