3 Tricks To Teach Your Polish Hound
3 Tricks To Teach Your Polish Hound

To teach your Polish Hound tricks, even the easy ones, you need to have in hand some of his favorite treats, go to a quiet suitable place and hold the learning sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Polish Hound will start to get tired. Remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, however beware not to get him overly ecstatic or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Polish Hound to give you his paw

To train your Polish 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 give him a treat. Then do this again, and after a few successful tries don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After just a few sessions most Polish Hounds pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Polish Hound to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of an easier trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Polish Hound will assume you want to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. While he reaches up you say “high five” and offer him the snack. When your Polish Hound has mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be very easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Polish Hound to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Polish Hound to harm himself while doing the trick. Set your Polish Hound to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Polish Hound the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to go around or below the hula hoop. In the event that this happens begin again. Your Polish Hound desires the snack and will quickly learn that going around or beneath does not get it so he’ll quickly begin going through it. Once he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing 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 dog you may wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it as he gets used to the trick.

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