To teach your Alano Espanol tricks, even the easy ones, you need to have in hand some good snacks, take him to an obscure suitable location and always keep the teaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Alano Espanol will begin to get bored. Remember when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just be mindful not to get him overly excited or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Alano Espanol to give you his paw
To get your Alano Espanol to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Then repeat this, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You need to notice that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response again. After a couple of sessions most Alano Espanols pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Alano Espanol to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and lift your hand somewhat higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Alano Espanol will expect you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. As he reaches up you state “high five” and give your Alano Espanol the treat. Once your Alano Espanol has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be extremely simple to master and with just a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Alano Espanol to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Alano Espanol to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Alano Espanol on 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 offer the Alano Espanol the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this happens begin once again. Your Alano Espanol wants the snack and will quickly discover that going around or underneath does not work so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist high. In the case that you have a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Alano Espanol. Have patience with your Alano Espanol and most importantly, have a good time!
