3 Tricks To Teach Your Kyi-Leo
3 Tricks To Teach Your Kyi-Leo

To teach your Kyi-Leo tricks, even easy ones, you should have in hand some delicious treats, teach him in a secluded suitable place and keep the training sessions to under 15 minutes or the Kyi-Leo will begin to get tired. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just be mindful not to get him over excited or he will lose focus.

Teach your Kyi-Leo to give you his paw

To train your Kyi-Leo to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Next do it again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You should discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After a couple of sessions most Kyi-Leos pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Kyi-Leo to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of an earlier trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Kyi-Leo will believe you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we taught him previously. While he rises you say “high five” and offer your Kyi-Leo the snack. As soon as your Kyi-Leo has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely easy to learn and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Kyi-Leo to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Kyi-Leo to hurt himself while performing the trick. Set your Kyi-Leo to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Kyi-Leo the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. When this occurs begin once again. Your Kyi-Leo wants the treat and will quickly learn that walking around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist high. In the event that you possess a smaller sized dog you might wish to begin with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it once he gets used to the trick.

I know you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Kyi-Leo. Have patience with your Kyi-Leo and above all, have fun!
