3 Tricks To Teach Your Transylvanian Hound
3 Tricks To Teach Your Transylvanian Hound

To teach your Transylvanian Hound tricks, even the simple ones, you need to get hold of some small treats, teach him in an obscure suitable place and maintain the learning sessions to under 15 minutes or your Transylvanian Hound will start to get tired. Bear in mind when he gets something correct offer him lots of praise and a reward treat, just beware not to get him too excited or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Transylvanian Hound to give you his paw

To train your Transylvanian Hound to offer 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 treat. Then repeat this, and after a few times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You should notice that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After a few sessions most Transylvanian Hounds pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Transylvanian Hound to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of a basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Transylvanian Hound will expect you desire to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we taught him earlier. While he rises you say “high five” and give your Transylvanian Hound the treat. As soon as your Transylvanian Hound has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be very simple to master and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Transylvanian Hound to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t want your Transylvanian Hound to injure himself while practicing the trick. Place your Transylvanian Hound to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Transylvanian Hound the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or below the hula hoop. When this occurs start once again. Your Transylvanian Hound desires the snack and will quickly discover that walking around or underneath does not work so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The second he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually increased it to waist height. In case you have a smaller sized dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Transylvanian Hound. Have patience with your Transylvanian Hound and most of all, have a good time!
