3 Tricks To Teach Your Treeing Walker Coonhound
3 Tricks To Teach Your Treeing Walker Coonhound

To teach your Treeing Walker Coonhound tricks, even the simple ones, you should always have some small snacks, be in a secluded suitable place and maintain the teaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Treeing Walker Coonhound will begin to get bored. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, though be cautious not to get him excessively excited or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Treeing Walker Coonhound to give you his paw

To teach your Treeing Walker Coonhound to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. After that do it again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You need to notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After a few sessions most Treeing Walker Coonhounds pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Treeing Walker Coonhound to offer you a high 5

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand just a bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Treeing Walker Coonhound will believe you want to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had trained him previously. Once he reaches up you state “high 5” and give him the snack. As soon as your Treeing Walker Coonhound has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be really simple to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than vocal commands.

Teach your Treeing Walker Coonhound to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high up as you do not want your Treeing Walker Coonhound to harm himself while practicing the trick. Set your Treeing Walker Coonhound to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Treeing Walker Coonhound the direction to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to walk around or under the hoop. In the event that this happens start again. Your Treeing Walker Coonhound wants the snack and will quickly find out that walking around or underneath does not get it so he will quickly begin going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist height. On the occasion that you possess a smaller sized dog you may want to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it as he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Treeing Walker Coonhound. Have patience with your Treeing Walker Coonhound and above all, have a good time!
