“On Trust” and “Paid For” for is among the earliest dog tricks that has been offering as much amusement as anything a dog can possibly do since the early 1900s. It is a great trick to teach your Southern Hound. It isn’t the simplest technique to be learned but it can be built upon and presented in a number of various forms to impress many people.

To teach your Southern Hound this trick, call your dog to you, enabling him to stand or take a seat, as he needs, and hold his head still with one hand, while you balance a treat on his nose.

Teach your Southern Hound the “on trust” trick

Say to him, “On trust, on trust,” steadying and restraining his head from swaying with 1 hand and holding up a warining finger with the other and reciting the words, “On trust, on trust”.

Teach your Southern Hound the “paid for” trick

Next, let go of his head, saying “paid for,” and give him a little tap beneath the chin. This will cause him to toss the treat up and capture it. Naturally, in his earlier attempts he will not have the ability to capture the snack, but he needs to be allowed to eat the treat after it hits the ground.

It’s a terrific trick for your Southern Hound

Constant repeating of this trick will produce efficiency. In time you must stop restraining his head with your hand and permit him to stabilize the snack on his nose till you say “Paid for.”

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

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

Your Southern Hound can likewise be taught to toss the treat upon hearing a certain number. To teach this, balance it on his nose and hold his head while you count clearly and intentionally, one, two, three, and then nudge him under the chin. Before he has actually learned the technique he will toss it up as often at 1, 2, 4, as he will at one, two, three, but he must be drilled up until he will not toss it up until he hears “3.” It will make it simpler for him if you slightly highlight the “THREE” word.

After a while you can use lots of combinations of numbers and he will wait till he hears the stressed “three.” As you are teaching him do not make him wait too long prior to you state “three,” and allow him to consume the snack.

“Trust” and “Paid For” may be a pretty tough trick for your Southern Hound to learn and requires a lot of patience from you. Remember, do not punish your Southern Hound if he can’t master the technique, rather blame yourself for being a lousy teacher.:–RRB- In any case, enjoy teaching your Southern Hound this trick and have loads of fun along the way.
