3 Tricks To Teach Your Spanish Water Dog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Spanish Water Dog

To teach your Spanish Water Dog tricks, even simple ones, you should always have some small snacks, be in a secluded suitable location and hold the instruction sessions to under 15 minutes or the Spanish Water Dog will start to get tired. Remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just be mindful not to get him extremely ecstatic or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Spanish Water Dog to offer you his paw

To get your Spanish Water Dog to give 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 treat. Then do it again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You need to discover that he is bringing his paw upward 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 again. After two or three sessions most Spanish Water Dogs pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Spanish Water Dog to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your two fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Spanish Water Dog will assume you want to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him earlier. While he reaches up you say “high five” and give your Spanish Water Dog the treat. As soon as your Spanish Water Dog has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be extremely easy to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.

Teach your Spanish Water Dog to leap through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Spanish Water Dog to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Spanish Water Dog on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Spanish Water Dog the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or beneath the hoop. In the event that this happens start again. Your Spanish Water Dog wants the snack and will quickly learn that walking around or beneath does not work so he will soon begin going through it. When he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist height. In the event that you own a smaller sized dog you might want to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more as he gets used to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Spanish Water Dog. Have patience with your Spanish Water Dog and most of all, have a good time!
