To teach your Moscow Watchdog tricks, even simple ones, you need to get some tasty snacks, go to a quiet suitable place and always keep the learning sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Moscow Watchdog will begin to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him lots of praise and a reward treat, just beware not to get him extra fired up or he can lose concentration.
Teach your Moscow Watchdog to give you his paw
To teach your Moscow Watchdog to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. And then repeat this, and after a few successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to see that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After just a few sessions most Moscow Watchdogs pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Moscow Watchdog to give you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Moscow Watchdog will believe you desire to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we had trained him earlier. While he reaches up you state “high 5” and give your Moscow Watchdog the treat. As soon as your Moscow Watchdog has mastered the paw trick this one should be extremely simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Moscow Watchdog 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 Moscow Watchdog to hurt himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Moscow Watchdog to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Moscow Watchdog the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to walk around or underneath the hoop. When this occurs start again. Your Moscow Watchdog desires the treat and will soon discover that going around or underneath doesn’t get it so he will quickly begin going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and offer 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 lifted it to waist height. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you might desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it as he gets used to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Moscow Watchdog. Have patience with your Moscow Watchdog and most of all, have fun!
