3 Tricks To Teach Your Stephens Cur
3 Tricks To Teach Your Stephens Cur

To teach your Stephens Cur tricks, even the easy ones, you need to always have some small snacks, be in a secluded suitable place and keep the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Stephens Cur will start to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, though beware not to get him excessively excited or he might lose focus.

Teach your Stephens Cur to give you his paw

To teach your Stephens Cur to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Now do it again, and after a couple of tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You should discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After just a couple of sessions most Stephens Curs pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Stephens Cur to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your two fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Stephens Cur will believe you desire to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had trained him earlier. As he rises you state “high five” and offer him the snack. As soon as your Stephens Cur has actually mastered the paw trick this one will probably be really easy to learn and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Stephens Cur to jump through a hoop

Before you begin 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 Stephens Cur to harm himself while performing the trick. Set your Stephens Cur to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Stephens Cur the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to walk around or under the hula hoop. If this occurs begin again. Your Stephens Cur desires the treat and will quickly find out that going around or below doesn’t get it done so he’ll soon start going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually increased it to waist high. On the occasion that you own a smaller dog you might desire to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it more as he gets used to the trick.

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