3 Tricks To Teach Your Stabyhoun
3 Tricks To Teach Your Stabyhoun

To teach your Stabyhoun tricks, even simple ones, you should have some tasty treats, be in a quiet suitable location and hold the learning sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Stabyhoun will begin to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, just be mindful not to get him too ecstatic or he may possibly lose concentration.

Teach your Stabyhoun to give you his paw

To teach your Stabyhoun to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Then repeat this, and after a few practices do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You should discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response again. After a couple of sessions most Stabyhouns pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Stabyhoun to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in between your two fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Stabyhoun will think you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you state “high five” and give him the treat. Once your Stabyhoun has mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be extremely easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than your voice.

Teach your Stabyhoun to jump through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Stabyhoun to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Stabyhoun on 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 give the Stabyhoun the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to walk around or below the hula hoop. In the event that this occurs start once again. Your Stabyhoun wants the snack and will quickly discover that walking around or underneath doesn’t work so he will quickly start going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly raised it to waist high. On the occasion that you have a smaller sized dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it as he gets used to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Stabyhoun. Have patience with your Stabyhoun and most of all, have a good time!
