3 Tricks To Teach Your Black And Tan Coonhound
3 Tricks To Teach Your Black And Tan Coonhound

To teach your Black And Tan Coonhound tricks, even the simple ones, you need to get some tasty treats, go to an obscure suitable location and keep the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Black And Tan Coonhound will begin to get tired. Don’t forget that when he gets something right give him lots of praise and a reward treat, just take care not to get him too thrilled or he might just lose focus.

Teach your Black And Tan Coonhound to offer you his paw

To get your Black And Tan Coonhound 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 snack. Now do it again, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You must see that he is bringing his paw up 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 reaction once again. After just a few sessions most Black And Tan Coonhounds pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Black And Tan Coonhound to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a basic trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in between your two fingers and raise your hand just a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Black And Tan Coonhound will presume you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we instructed him previously. While he reaches up you say “high five” and offer him the treat. When your Black And Tan Coonhound has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely easy to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Black And Tan Coonhound to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Black And Tan Coonhound to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Black And Tan Coonhound on 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 Black And Tan Coonhound the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. When this happens start once again. Your Black And Tan Coonhound wants the treat and will soon learn that going around or under does not get it so he will quickly begin going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly brought it to waist high. In case you have a smaller dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more once he gets used to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Black And Tan Coonhound. Have patience with your Black And Tan Coonhound and most of all, have fun!
