To teach your Hanover Hound tricks, even the easy ones, you should have in hand some small snacks, go to a remote suitable location and manage to keep the learning sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Hanover Hound will start to get bored. Just remember when he gets something right give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just beware not to get him extremely fired up or he will lose focus.
Teach your Hanover Hound to give you his paw
To teach your Hanover Hound to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Next 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 ought to discover that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After just a couple of sessions most Hanover Hounds pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Hanover Hound to give you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in between your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Hanover Hound will believe you want to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you say “high five” and give your Hanover Hound the snack. When your Hanover Hound has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be extremely easy to master and with just a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Hanover Hound to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not really want your Hanover Hound to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Hanover Hound to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Hanover Hound the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to go around or below the hoop. When this takes place begin once again. Your Hanover Hound desires the snack and will quickly learn that walking around or underneath doesn’t work so he will quickly start going through it. Whenever he does, say “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 owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly raised it to waist height. In the event that you have a smaller sized dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Hanover Hound. Have patience with your Hanover Hound and above all, have a good time!
