To teach your Blackmouth Cur tricks, even the easy ones, you need to carry some small snacks, teach him in a quiet suitable place and always keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Blackmouth Cur will start to get bored. Always remember when he gets something right give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, however take care not to get him excessively excited or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Blackmouth Cur to offer you his paw
To teach your Blackmouth Cur to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. After that repeat this, and after a few practices do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You must discover that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response again. After just a few sessions most Blackmouth Curs pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Blackmouth Cur to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your two fingers and lift your hand a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Blackmouth Cur will presume you desire to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. While he rises you say “high 5” and give your Blackmouth Cur the snack. Once your Blackmouth Cur has actually mastered the paw trick this one will probably be extremely easy to master and with just a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Blackmouth Cur to leap through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Blackmouth Cur to injure himself while doing the trick. Set your Blackmouth Cur on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Blackmouth Cur the command to stop sitting. Initially he might try to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this happens begin once again. Your Blackmouth Cur wants the snack and will soon find out that walking around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll soon begin going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually brought it to waist height. In case you have a smaller dog you might wish to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.
