To teach your Tennessee Treeing Brindle tricks, even the simple ones, you should have in hand some small treats, take him to a quiet suitable location and try to keep the training sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Tennessee Treeing Brindle will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, however take care not to get him extremely thrilled or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Tennessee Treeing Brindle to offer you his paw
To train your Tennessee Treeing Brindle to offer 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 snack. After that do it again, and after a couple of tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say 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 doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a couple of sessions most Tennessee Treeing Brindles pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Tennessee Treeing Brindle to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a progression of a simpler trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Tennessee Treeing Brindle will expect you want to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we trained him earlier. As he rises you say “high 5” and give your Tennessee Treeing Brindle the snack. As soon as your Tennessee Treeing Brindle has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be really easy to understand and with just a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.
Teach your Tennessee Treeing Brindle to leap through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Tennessee Treeing Brindle to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Tennessee Treeing Brindle to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Tennessee Treeing Brindle the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to go around or under the hoop. In the event that this occurs begin again. Your Tennessee Treeing Brindle desires the treat and will quickly discover that walking around or underneath doesn’t get it done so he’ll soon begin going through it. The second he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist high. On the occasion that you own a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it more once he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Tennessee Treeing Brindle. Have patience with your Tennessee Treeing Brindle and most of all, have a good time!
