“On Trust” and “Paid For” for is one of the oldest dog tricks that has been providing as much entertainment as anything a dog can possibly do from the early 1900s. It is an excellent trick to teach your Weimaraner. It isn’t the most convenient technique to be learned however it can be elaborated upon and presented in several different ways to impress a lot of people.
To teach your Weimaraner this trick, call him to you, enabling him to stand up or sit down, as he wishes, and hold his head stable with one hand, while you stabilize a snack on his nose.
Teach your Weimaraner the “on trust” trick
State to him, “On trust, on trust,” steadying and limiting his head from moving with 1 hand and holding up an intimidating finger with the other and repeatedly saying the words, “On trust, on trust”.
Teach your Weimaraner the “paid for” trick
Next, release his head, stating “paid for,” and give him a little tap beneath the chin. This will trigger him to toss the snack up and capture it. Of course, in his first attempts he won’t have the ability to capture the snack, but he should be permitted to eat the treat after it lands on the floor.
It’s a terrific trick for your Weimaraner
Continuous repeating of this trick will produce efficiency. With time you must stop limiting his head with your hand and permit him to stabilize the treat on his nose till you say “Paid for.”
He can also be taught to hold the snack in between his teeth and to not swallow it until informed to do so. This trick can be made more remarkable by holding a conversation with your Weimaraner. For instance, you might say: “Pal, old man, here is a very delicious snack, however it is ‘on trust.'”
Somewhat emphasize the word “trust” and after that say: “I am pleased you dislike eating things on trust, however this I have just discovered has been ‘paid for,'” highlighting the words “paid for.”
Your Weimaraner can also be taught to toss the snack 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 learned the technique he will toss it up as often at 1, 2, 4, as he will at 1, 2, 3, but he needs to be drilled until he will not toss it until he hears “3.” It will make it easier for him if you slightly stress the “3” word.
After a while you can use many combinations of numbers and he will wait till he hears the highlighted “3.” As you are training him don’t make him wait too long prior to you state “3,” and permit him to consume the snack.
“Trust” and “Paid For” may be a pretty hard trick for your Weimaraner to master and needs lots of persistence from you. Remember, do not punish your Weimaraner if he can’t master the technique, instead blame yourself for being a lousy teacher.:–RRB- In any case, enjoy teaching your Weimaraner this trick and have loads of fun while you’re at it.
