To teach your Saarlooswolfhond tricks, even easy ones, you need to have in hand some of his favorite snacks, go to a remote suitable location and keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Saarlooswolfhond will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, though be mindful not to get him extremely fired up or he might lose concentration.
Teach your Saarlooswolfhond to give you his paw
To teach your Saarlooswolfhond to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. And then repeat this, and after a few times do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You need to discover that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After a few sessions most Saarlooswolfhonds pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Saarlooswolfhond to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an easier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Saarlooswolfhond will think you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we instructed him previously. Once he rises you say “high five” and offer him the snack. As soon as your Saarlooswolfhond has mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be extremely simple to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your Saarlooswolfhond to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Saarlooswolfhond to harm himself while doing the trick. Place your Saarlooswolfhond on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Saarlooswolfhond the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to walk around or under the hula hoop. If this happens begin once again. Your Saarlooswolfhond wants the snack and will quickly find out that going around or below doesn’t get it done so he will quickly begin going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist height. In the event that you possess a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Saarlooswolfhond. Have patience with your Saarlooswolfhond and above all, have a good time!
