3 Tricks To Teach Your Catahoula Cur

To teach your Catahoula Cur tricks, even easy ones, you should have in hand some savory treats, go to a remote suitable location and maintain the instruction sessions to under 15 minutes or the Catahoula Cur will begin to get bored. Take note that when he gets something right offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, however beware not to get him excessively fired up or he might possibly lose focus.

Teach your Catahoula Cur to offer you his paw

To train your Catahoula Cur to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Next repeat this, and after a couple of successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one 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 return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After two or three sessions most Catahoula Curs pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Catahoula Cur to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a simpler trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Catahoula Cur will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we trained him earlier. As he rises you state “high five” and offer your Catahoula Cur the treat. When your Catahoula Cur has mastered the paw trick this one should be extremely simple to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Catahoula Cur to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Catahoula Cur to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Catahoula Cur on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Catahoula Cur the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to go around or underneath the hula hoop. If this happens begin again. Your Catahoula Cur wants the treat and will quickly discover that walking around or under does not get it done so he’ll soon start going through it. The minute he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly brought it to waist high. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you may desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it as he gets accustomed to the trick.
