3 Tricks To Teach Your Polish Tatra Sheepdog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Polish Tatra Sheepdog

To teach your Polish Tatra Sheepdog tricks, even the easy ones, you should get hold of some small treats, be in a quiet suitable location and keep the learning sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Polish Tatra Sheepdog will begin to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something right offer him great deals of praise and a reward snack, but take care not to get him extra thrilled or he might lose focus.

Teach your Polish Tatra Sheepdog to offer you his paw

To get your Polish Tatra Sheepdog to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. After that do it again, and after a few successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You must discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Polish Tatra Sheepdogs pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Polish Tatra Sheepdog to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of a basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Polish Tatra Sheepdog will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we trained him earlier. As he rises you state “high 5” and offer your Polish Tatra Sheepdog the treat. When your Polish Tatra Sheepdog has mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be very easy to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Polish Tatra Sheepdog to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Polish Tatra Sheepdog to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Polish Tatra Sheepdog on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Polish Tatra Sheepdog the direction to stop sitting. At first he might try to go around or under the hula hoop. When this occurs begin again. Your Polish Tatra Sheepdog wants the treat and will soon discover that walking around or below does not work so he’ll quickly start going through it. Once he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist height. In the event that you have a smaller dog you might desire to start with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
