3 Tricks To Teach Your Georgian Shepherd

To teach your Georgian Shepherd tricks, even easy ones, you need to get hold of some of his favorite treats, teach him in a quiet suitable location and always keep the instruction sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Georgian Shepherd will begin to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just be mindful not to get him excessively ecstatic or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Georgian Shepherd to give you his paw

To get your Georgian Shepherd to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. And then repeat this, and after a few times do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You should observe that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After two or three sessions most Georgian Shepherds pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Georgian Shepherd to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a basic trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and lift your hand a bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Georgian Shepherd will assume you want to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we taught him in the previous trick. Once he reaches up you state “high 5” and give your Georgian Shepherd the treat. As soon as your Georgian Shepherd has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very easy to understand and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than your voice.

Teach your Georgian Shepherd to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Georgian Shepherd to injure himself while performing the trick. Set your Georgian Shepherd to 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 Georgian Shepherd the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or below the hoop. If this takes place begin once again. Your Georgian Shepherd wants the snack and will quickly learn that walking around or underneath does not get it done so he will soon start going through it. Once he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly brought it to waist height. In the case that you possess a smaller dog you may desire to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
