3 Tricks To Teach Your Treeing Cur
3 Tricks To Teach Your Treeing Cur

To teach your Treeing Cur tricks, even easy ones, you should provide some of his favorite snacks, go to a quiet suitable location and try to keep the training sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Treeing Cur will begin to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something right give him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, however beware not to get him over fired up or he may perhaps lose focus.

Teach your Treeing Cur to give you his paw

To get your Treeing Cur to offer 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 snack. And then do it again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You must notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After just a few sessions most Treeing Curs pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Treeing Cur to offer you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of a simpler trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Treeing Cur will expect you wish to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had taught him in the previous trick. Once he rises you state “high five” and offer him the snack. As soon as your Treeing Cur has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be very easy to understand and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.

Teach your Treeing Cur to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not really want your Treeing Cur to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Treeing Cur on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Treeing Cur the direction to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to go around or under the hula hoop. When this takes place begin again. Your Treeing Cur desires the treat and will quickly find out that going around or below doesn’t work so he will soon start going through it. The minute he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will 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 slowly raised it to waist high. In case you possess a smaller sized dog you might want to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Treeing Cur. Have patience with your Treeing Cur and most of all, have fun!
