Fist Pound

Forget the too common "handshake" trick.  Our latest trick with Niko is the "fist pound."  It was the easiest trick to teach Niko. He's very dexterous with his paws. I held my fist out when he was sitting and he raised his left paw to touch mine. I don't even have to add a cue word. It's fun to say "fist pound" to him though.  


  1. That's great! Now the next step will be having Niko do the "exploding" fist pound a la Andy Bernard

  2. Cute! Shibas tend to use their paws almost like cats sometimes. Good trick!

  3. Awesome. I'm trying to teach Kit and Betsy "wsup", head nod.
