To teach your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound tricks, even the easy ones, you need to have some small snacks, be in a secluded suitable place and always keep the coaching sessions to under 15 minutes or your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound will begin to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just take care not to get him extremely fired up or he might lose focus.
Teach your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound to give you his paw
To train your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound 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 snack. Then do it again, and after a couple of times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After a few sessions most Styrian Coarse-Haired Hounds pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound will presume you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we taught him in the previous trick. While he reaches up you state “high five” and offer him the snack. When your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be extremely simple to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound to injure himself while doing the trick. Set your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound the command to stop sitting. Initially he may try to go around or below the hoop. When this happens begin once again. Your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound wants the snack and will soon discover that going around or under doesn’t work so he’ll quickly start going through it. The instant he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually lifted it to waist height. In the case that you have a smaller sized dog you may wish to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it once he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound. Have patience with your Styrian Coarse-Haired Hound and most importantly, have a good time!
