Watching a dog performing tricks is one of the most pleasurable activities to be enjoyed. When it comes to performing tricks Miniature Schnauzers are no exception. In fact, Miniature Schnauzer dogs are particularly keen on showing off their cool dog tricks.
Because of a dog’s loyalty to their owner, they just love to please and that includes performing tricks they have learned.
Most tricks are taught to dogs, but I once knew a little dog that made up his own tricks. That little dog was very proud of his tricks and performed them to anyone who cared to join in the fun of watching him.
What Kind of Tricks Are the Best to Teach your Miniature Schnauzer
There are a great number of tricks that can be taught over and above the usual Sit and Stay.
I don’t class Sit and Stay as tricks, although I’m aware that some people do.
Cool Dog Tricks are actions such as:
- High Five
- Shaking Hands (Paws)
- Standing on hind legs and dancing
- Rolling Over
- Taking a Bow
- Playing Dead
The trick, playing dead, might not sound the best but it is harmless and fun to watch. The owner of the dog points his finger at the dog and says ‘bang’. When the dog hears the word ‘bang’ he drops to the ground and lays still.
Another action great to watch is a dog intertwining his body between rows of tall pegs in the ground. Again, this can be classed as training, as in preparing for a competition or show. It can also be considered a trick, and a valuable trick when it comes to a dog’s concentration and exercise.
Learning Tricks are Important to a Dog’s Development
Setting aside time to teach your Miniature Schnauzer some cool tricks is helpful in respect to your dog’s mental and physical health.
Playing ball games with your dog or young puppy can also be considered as tricks. Thinking creatively about teaching your dog a certain way of catching a ball, hiding it and finding the ball again can be included in his list of cool dog tricks.
In the video below you can see a young Miniature Schnauzer dog performing her tricks. I could see how much this dog enjoys the activity. Her concentration and fitness level are amazing and reveal her desire to please her owner.
I once saw a dog putting his toys into his Toy Box. It was unbelievable that a dog would be so tidy as to do that.
However, did you watch the video and see the dog placing the rings over the stem of the toy? If so, perhaps you will agree it is possible to train a dog to put his or her toys away when finished with for the day.
Well, it’s worth a try, and can be considered as another cool dog trick your Miniature Schnauzer loves to perform.
