3 Tricks To Teach Your Mcnab

To teach your Mcnab tricks, even the easy ones, you need to carry some good treats, take him to a secluded suitable place and hold the learning sessions to under 15 minutes or your Mcnab will start to get tired. Bear in mind when he gets something correct offer him lots of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him too fired up or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Mcnab to offer you his paw

To train your Mcnab to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. After that repeat this, and after a few practices do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You must notice that he is raising his paw upward as you say 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 again. After just a couple of sessions most Mcnabs pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Mcnab to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an easier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Mcnab will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and give your Mcnab the snack. As soon as your Mcnab has mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be very simple to understand and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than your voice.

Teach your Mcnab to leap through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you do not really want your Mcnab to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Mcnab on 1 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 Mcnab the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. If this occurs start once again. Your Mcnab wants the snack and will soon find out that walking around or below doesn’t work so he will quickly begin going through it. The second he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist high. In the case that you possess a smaller sized dog you might wish to begin with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it more as he gets used to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Mcnab. Have patience with your Mcnab and most importantly, have fun!
