To teach your Galgo Espanol tricks, even simple ones, you should have in hand some savory treats, teach him in a quiet suitable place and always keep the learning sessions to under 15 minutes or your Galgo Espanol will begin to get bored. Remember when he gets something right give him great deals of praise and a reward treat, yet take care not to get him excessively thrilled or he will lose focus.
Teach your Galgo Espanol to give you his paw
To get your Galgo Espanol to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Next do it again, and after a few times do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response once again. After a few sessions most Galgo Espanols pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Galgo Espanol to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Galgo Espanol will expect you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we had taught him previously. While he rises you state “high five” and offer him the treat. As soon as your Galgo Espanol has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be extremely simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Galgo Espanol to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Galgo Espanol to harm himself while performing the trick. Set your Galgo Espanol on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Galgo Espanol the direction to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this happens start once again. Your Galgo Espanol desires the treat and will soon discover that going around or underneath doesn’t work so he’ll soon begin going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually lifted it to waist height. On the occasion that you have a smaller dog you might desire to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.
