3 Tricks To Teach Your Sloughi
3 Tricks To Teach Your Sloughi

To teach your Sloughi tricks, even the easy ones, you need to carry some small treats, teach him in a secluded suitable location and always keep the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Sloughi will begin to get tired. Always remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just take care not to get him overly thrilled or he will lose focus.

Teach your Sloughi to offer you his paw

To get your Sloughi to give 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. Next repeat this, and after a couple of successful tries don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You should see that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Sloughis pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Sloughi to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Sloughi will believe you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we trained him earlier. Once he rises you state “high 5” and give him the treat. When your Sloughi has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be extremely simple to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Sloughi to leap through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high as you do not really want your Sloughi to harm himself while practicing the trick. Set your Sloughi on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Sloughi the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may try to walk around or beneath the hula hoop. In the event that this happens start once again. Your Sloughi desires the snack and will soon discover that walking around or underneath doesn’t get it so he will quickly begin going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist height. In case you possess a smaller dog you might desire to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it once he gets used to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Sloughi. Have patience with your Sloughi and most importantly, have a good time!
