3 Tricks To Teach Your Ibizan Hound

To teach your Ibizan Hound tricks, even the easy ones, you should get some small snacks, go to a remote suitable place and maintain the learning sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Ibizan Hound will start to get tired. Always remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just be careful not to get him overly excited or he might lose focus.

Teach your Ibizan Hound to give you his paw

To teach your Ibizan Hound to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Then repeat this, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must see that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response again. After just a couple of sessions most Ibizan Hounds pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Ibizan Hound to give you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your two fingers and lift your hand a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Ibizan Hound will presume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had taught him in the previous trick. As he rises you state “high 5” and give him the snack. Once your Ibizan Hound has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be extremely simple to understand and with only a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of voice control.

Teach your Ibizan Hound to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Ibizan Hound to hurt himself while doing the trick. Set your Ibizan Hound on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Ibizan Hound the command to stop sitting. At first he might attempt to go around or underneath the hula hoop. When this takes place start once again. Your Ibizan Hound desires the treat and will quickly learn that walking around or under does not get it done so he’ll quickly begin going through it. Whenever he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually increased it to waist high. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you might want to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Ibizan Hound. Have patience with your Ibizan Hound and above all, have fun!
