3 Tricks To Teach Your Mexican Hairless Dog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Mexican Hairless Dog

To teach your Mexican Hairless Dog tricks, even simple ones, you should get some of his favorite snacks, take him to an obscure suitable place and keep the instruction sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Mexican Hairless Dog will start to get bored. Take note that when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, but beware not to get him extra ecstatic or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Mexican Hairless Dog to offer you his paw

To teach your Mexican Hairless Dog to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Next repeat this, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You should see that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most Mexican Hairless Dogs pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Mexican Hairless Dog to offer you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an easier trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your two fingers and lift your hand a bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Mexican Hairless Dog will expect you want to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had trained him earlier. Once he rises you state “high five” and offer him the snack. Once your Mexican Hairless Dog has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Mexican Hairless Dog to jump through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not really want your Mexican Hairless Dog to harm himself while doing the trick. Place your Mexican Hairless Dog to one side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Mexican Hairless Dog the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place begin once again. Your Mexican Hairless Dog wants the snack and will soon learn that walking around or below does not work so he will quickly start going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist height. If you possess a smaller dog you might want to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it more as he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Mexican Hairless Dog. Have patience with your Mexican Hairless Dog and most of all, have a good time!
