10 Tips for Training a Shiba Inu

The Shiba Inu is a small, agile, and intelligent dog. They are also very independent! That makes them difficult to train at times. But don’t worry – we’ve got you covered with our 10 tips for training your Shiba Inu, from chewing on the furniture to running around in circles. Follow these simple tips, and soon your Shiba will be sitting obediently by your side, waiting for their next command!

Feed them the correct food

Shiba Inu’s are typically not picky about food, but it is important to feed them the correct type. If you want your Shiba Inu to be obedient and listen when they’re called, give them dog food that contains a mix of protein and carbohydrates like meat or grains. This will keep them energized for hours!

Train them to come when called

One of the most important commands to train your Shiba Inu is how to come when they’re called. This will keep them from getting into trouble and help you find them if they ever get lost. When training, use a word that’s not commonly used in everyday conversation to make it easier for your dog to hear.

Teach them their name and call it often 

One of the most important commands to train your Shiba Inu is how to come when they’re called. This will keep them from getting into trouble and help you find them if they ever get lost. When training, use a word that’s not commonly used in everyday conversation to make it easier for your dog to hear.

The word “leave it” or “drop it” can be used when they are about to chew on a different object. This command will help you keep your home clean and safe from any hazards, including poisonous substances like household cleaners.

Practice with a leash and collar, but don’t use these everyday

Shuba Inus can be a handful to train. They have an independent streak and will want to do their own thing instead of taking orders from you. To get your Shiba Inu used to be on a leash when walking around the neighborhood or in new places, start by practicing with these items but don’t use them in everyday life.

Make sure they get enough exercise every day, but not too much at once

The Shiba Inu is a very playful Shiba Inu that needs to be exercised. They are not the type of dog that will go for walks on their own accord. They tend to need more encouragement and playtime with you or another family member. The problem can arise when it comes time for bed; your Shiba Inu might be too exhausted to go to sleep.

Make sure they get enough exercise every day, but not too much at once. If you are working and your Shiba Inu is going stir crazy, take them for a 30-minute walk around the neighborhood or let them out in an enclosed area of your home with lots of toys inside (like in their own space). They’ll get their exercise and be tired enough to sleep when they come home.

Give your Shiba Inu plenty of love and attention- be patient!

This breed is not the type that will go for walks on their own, so they need a lot of encouragement and playtime with you or another family member. They are also known to be stubborn at times, so it can be difficult when it comes time for bed; your Shiba Inu might have too much energy left over from playing.

One way to make sure they are tired enough at the end of the night is to have a game with them before bed, like a tug-of-war. This will help wear out their energy and calm them down for sleep time!

Play with your Shiba Inu regularly to keep him or her happy

Shiba Inus were bred to be hunting dogs, and they are very active. They need plenty of playtime outside with you or other family members. Otherwise, they can become destructive in the home. Your Shiba Inu should not have too much time inside because it could lead them to develop separation anxiety which is a common problem with dogs.

A good rule of thumb is to give them a little indoor time in the morning and then outside for playtime or exercise all day long, but not too much at night before bed when they are meant to be resting. Remember that Shiba Inus need sleep just like any other dog! We recommend this adorable pink ball that bounces them around.

Keep an eye on his or her weight as he or she ages; this is important for health reasons!

As your Shiba Inu ages, it is important to be aware of their weight and adjust their diet accordingly. This way, they can maintain a healthy body as they age and avoid health problems that come with being overweight. It would help if you talked to your vet about adjusting the amount they eat based on how much exercise they get.

If you don’t have a vet, here are some guidelines to help with food and exercise levels: A Shiba Inu should weigh about 30 pounds or less to be considered healthy. Make sure he or she is getting enough physical activity by taking him for walks, playing fetch, and going on hikes

Be consistent in training methods so that your Shiba Inu knows what’s expected of him/her all the time (but make sure you’re also flexible!)

It’s important to be consistent with your training methods to know what is expected of him/her. But make sure you’re also flexible!

For example, if your Shiba Inu doesn’t want to come inside when called, try calling them while walking away from the door for a few seconds before returning to the door. The idea is to show them that coming inside isn’t a bad thing, but you also need their cooperation to work!

Remember that training takes time- patience is key!

Training takes time, which is why patience and consistency are the keys. Make sure you stick to your routine for a few weeks before changing it up or adding more tasks!

For example, if you’ve been training him to stay off certain furniture by using verbal commands like “OFF!” If he’s not responding well after three days, try placing a negative consequence (like an air spray) near the furniture in question.

It’s also important to remember that all dogs are individuals and will respond differently- even if they’re friends! Make sure you watch your Shiba Inu for their “body language” so you know how they might be feeling about certain situations or commands.

Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be well on your way to training a Shiba Inu!

Your dog will always respond differently, so make sure that you note their “body language” when deciding how they might react. If he’s not responding well after three days, try placing a negative consequence near the furniture in question. It’s also important to remember that all dogs are individuals and will respond differently- even if they’re friends!
