3 Tricks To Teach Your Labrador Husky
3 Tricks To Teach Your Labrador Husky

To teach your Labrador Husky tricks, even easy ones, you need to get hold of some of his favorite treats, go to an obscure suitable location and hold the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Labrador Husky will start to get tired. Always remember when he gets something right give him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, just beware not to get him extra ecstatic or he might lose focus.

Teach your Labrador Husky to give you his paw

To teach your Labrador Husky 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 snack. Now repeat this, and after a few successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You need to see 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 response again. After a few sessions most Labrador Huskys pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Labrador Husky to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of a simpler trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your two fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Labrador Husky will assume you wish to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had taught him previously. As he reaches up you state “high 5” and give him the snack. Once your Labrador Husky has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very simple to learn and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Labrador Husky to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not really want your Labrador Husky to harm himself while doing the trick. Set your Labrador Husky on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Labrador Husky the direction to stop sitting. At first he might try to walk around or below the hoop. If this takes place start again. Your Labrador Husky wants the treat and will quickly discover that going around or under doesn’t get it done so he’ll soon begin going through it. Once he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly brought it to waist high. If you have a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it as he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Labrador Husky. Have patience with your Labrador Husky and most importantly, have fun!
