Continuous repetition of this trick will produce effectiveness. Over time you must stop restraining his head with your hand and allow him to balance the snack on his nose till you say “Paid for.”

He can also be taught to hold the treat between his teeth and to not swallow it until told to do so. This technique can be made more impressive by holding a conversation with your English Foxhound. For example, you might say: “Buddy, old boy, here is a very tasty treat, but it is ‘on trust.'”

Slightly stress the word “trust” and after that state: “I am happy you dislike consuming things on trust, however this I have just learned has actually been ‘paid for,'” stressing the words “paid for.”

Your English Foxhound can likewise be taught to toss the treat upon hearing a particular number. To teach this, balance it on his nose and hold his head while you count plainly and intentionally, one, two, three, and then touch him under the chin. Before he has actually learned the trick he will toss it up as often at 1, 2, 4, as he will at one, two, three, but he needs to be drilled till he will not toss it up until he hears “three.” It will make it simpler for him if you slightly emphasize the “3” word.

After a while you can use many combinations of numbers and he will wait until he hears the stressed “three.” While training him do not make him wait too long before you say “three,” and allow him to consume the treat.

“Trust” and “Paid For” might be remarkably hard trick for your English Foxhound to learn and requires lots of perseverance from you.
