To teach your Caucasian Shepherd Dog tricks, even the simple ones, you need to get hold of some small snacks, take him to a quiet suitable place and hold the learning sessions to under 15 minutes or your Caucasian Shepherd Dog will begin to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, but beware not to get him over excited or he can lose concentration.
Teach your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to give you his paw
To get your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Next repeat this, and after a couple of times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You need to notice that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Caucasian Shepherd Dogs pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog will expect you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we had trained him in the previous trick. As he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the snack. When your Caucasian Shepherd Dog has mastered the paw trick this one will probably be very easy to learn and with only a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not really want your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Caucasian Shepherd Dog the command to stop sitting. Initially he might try to walk around or under the hula hoop. When this occurs start once again. Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog desires the treat and will soon find out that walking around or underneath does not get it done so he will quickly start going through it. The second he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist height. In the case that you possess a smaller sized dog you may wish to begin with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it as he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Caucasian Shepherd Dog. Have patience with your Caucasian Shepherd Dog and above all, have fun!
