“On Trust” and “Paid For” for is one of the oldest dog tricks that has been offering as much entertainment as anything a dog can possibly do since the early 1900s. It’s an excellent trick to teach your Sloughi. It is not the easiest trick to be learned but it can be built on and presented in numerous different forms to impress the majority of people.
To teach your Sloughi this trick, call your dog to you, enabling him to stand or take a seat, as he wants, and hold his head still with one hand, while you balance a snack on his nose.
Teach your Sloughi the “on trust” trick
Say to him, “On trust, on trust,” steadying and limiting his head from moving with 1 hand while holding up an intimidating finger with the other and repeatedly saying the words, “On trust, on trust”.
Teach your Sloughi the “paid for” trick
Next, let go of his head, stating “paid for,” and give him a little touch beneath the chin. This will cause him to toss the treat up and capture it. Obviously, in his earlier attempts he won’t be able to capture the treat, but he must be permitted to eat the snack after it hits the ground.
It’s a great trick for your Sloughi
Continuous repetition of this training will produce efficiency. With time you should stop restraining his head with your hand and enable him to balance the treat 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 remarkable by holding a conversation with your Sloughi. For example, you may state: “Friend, old man, here is a very delicious snack, but it is ‘on trust.'”
Somewhat highlight the word “trust” and then say: “I am delighted you dislike consuming things on trust, but this I have actually just learned has been ‘paid for,'” emphasizing the words “paid for.”
Your Sloughi can also be taught to toss the treat upon hearing a specific number. To teach this, balance it on his nose and hold his head while you count clearly and intentionally, one, two, three, and after that nudge him under the chin. Before he has actually learned the technique he will toss it up as frequently at one, two, four, as he will at 1, 2, 3, but he should be drilled until he will not toss it until he hears “three.” It will make it much easier for him if you somewhat emphasize the “THREE” word.
After a while you can use numerous combinations of numbers and he will wait till he hears the stressed “three.” While teaching him don’t make him wait too long prior to you say “three,” and allow him to consume the treat.
“Trust” and “Paid For” may be a significantly difficult trick for your Sloughi to master and needs plenty of patience from you. Keep in mind, do not penalize your Sloughi if he can’t perfect the trick, instead blame yourself for being a lousy teacher.:–RRB- In any case, delight in teaching your Sloughi this trick and have loads of fun while you’re at it.
