3 Tricks To Teach Your Lhasa Apso
3 Tricks To Teach Your Lhasa Apso

To teach your Lhasa Apso tricks, even the easy ones, you need to have some of his favorite snacks, take him to a secluded suitable place and hold the coaching sessions to under 15 minutes or the Lhasa Apso will begin to get bored. Keep in mind when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, but be careful not to get him over fired up or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Lhasa Apso to offer you his paw

To get your Lhasa Apso 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. Then do it again, and after a few successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You need to observe that he is raising his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After just a few sessions most Lhasa Apsos pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Lhasa Apso to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and lift your hand just a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Lhasa Apso will believe you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. Once he rises you state “high 5” and offer him the treat. Once your Lhasa Apso has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be really simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Lhasa Apso to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Lhasa Apso to hurt himself while performing the trick. Set your Lhasa Apso on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Lhasa Apso the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or beneath the hula hoop. When this happens start again. Your Lhasa Apso desires the snack and will quickly learn that going around or underneath does not get it so he’ll quickly start going through it. The instant 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 doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist height. In the event that you possess a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it once he gets used to the trick.

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