3 Tricks To Teach Your Kuri
3 Tricks To Teach Your Kuri

To teach your Kuri tricks, even the simple ones, you need to have in hand some of his favorite treats, go to an obscure suitable location and manage to keep the training sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Kuri will start to get tired. Always remember when he gets something right offer him lots of praise and a reward treat, just be cautious not to get him excessively excited or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Kuri to give you his paw

To get your Kuri to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Now do this again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to discover that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After two or three sessions most Kuris pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Kuri to give you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an earlier trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your two fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Kuri will presume you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had trained him in the prior trick. While he reaches up you state “high five” and offer him the treat. When your Kuri has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very simple to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of from your voice.

Teach your Kuri to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this one 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 Kuri to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Kuri to one 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 Kuri the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he may try to go around or beneath the hula hoop. If this takes place begin once again. Your Kuri wants the treat and will quickly find out that going around or beneath doesn’t get it done so he will soon begin going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually lifted it to waist high. In the case that you have a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.

I know you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Kuri. Have patience with your Kuri and most of all, have fun!
