To teach your Great Pyrenees tricks, even easy ones, you should have in hand some tasty treats, teach him in a quiet suitable place and hold the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Great Pyrenees will start to get tired. Take note that when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, however take care not to get him overly thrilled or he may perhaps lose concentration.
Teach your Great Pyrenees to offer you his paw
To train your Great Pyrenees to give 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 snack. And then repeat this, and after a couple of times do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Great Pyreneess pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Great Pyrenees to offer you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Great Pyrenees will expect you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had trained him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you say “high five” and offer him the treat. Once your Great Pyrenees has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be really simple to learn and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.
Teach your Great Pyrenees to jump through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t want your Great Pyrenees to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Great Pyrenees on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Great Pyrenees the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to go around or underneath the hoop. If this happens start once again. Your Great Pyrenees wants the snack and will quickly learn that going around or beneath does not get it so he’ll soon start going through it. The minute he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually increased it to waist height. In the event that you own a smaller dog you may want to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Great Pyrenees. Have patience with your Great Pyrenees and most of all, have a good time!
