To teach your Norrbottenspets tricks, even the easy ones, you should carry some tasty snacks, take him to an obscure suitable location and keep the learning sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Norrbottenspets will begin to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just beware not to get him over thrilled or he may well lose focus.
Teach your Norrbottenspets to give you his paw
To get your Norrbottenspets to give 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 do this again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You need to notice that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction once again. After a couple of sessions most Norrbottenspetss pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Norrbottenspets to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an easier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in between your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Norrbottenspets will presume you desire to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had trained him in the previous trick. As he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the treat. When your Norrbottenspets has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely simple to understand and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of from your voice.
Teach your Norrbottenspets to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t want your Norrbottenspets to harm himself while practicing the trick. Set your Norrbottenspets to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Norrbottenspets the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or beneath the hoop. When this takes place start once again. Your Norrbottenspets desires the snack and will quickly learn that going around or beneath does not work so he will soon begin going through it. The instant he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly raised it to waist high. In the case that you have a smaller dog you may want to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it more once he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Norrbottenspets. Have patience with your Norrbottenspets and most importantly, have fun!
