3 Tricks To Teach Your Pharaoh Hound
3 Tricks To Teach Your Pharaoh Hound

To teach your Pharaoh Hound tricks, even easy ones, you should get hold of some small snacks, go to a quiet suitable place and keep the teaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Pharaoh Hound will start to get bored. Always remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just be careful not to get him overly ecstatic or he will lose focus.

Teach your Pharaoh Hound to offer you his paw

To get your Pharaoh Hound to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. And then do it again, and after a couple of practices don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You must discover that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After a few sessions most Pharaoh Hounds pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Pharaoh Hound to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an easier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and lift your hand just a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Pharaoh Hound will expect you want to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. As he reaches up you state “high five” and give your Pharaoh Hound the snack. As soon as your Pharaoh Hound has mastered the paw trick this one should be extremely simple to understand and with just a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Pharaoh Hound to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not really want your Pharaoh Hound to injure himself while practicing the trick. Place your Pharaoh Hound to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Pharaoh Hound the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to go around or beneath the hula hoop. When this occurs begin once again. Your Pharaoh Hound desires the snack and will quickly find out that walking around or below doesn’t get it done so he’ll quickly begin going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly lifted it to waist height. On the occasion that you have a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more once he gets used to the trick.

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