To teach your Irish Red And White Setter tricks, even easy ones, you need to carry some of his favorite snacks, go to a quiet suitable place and keep the coaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Irish Red And White Setter will begin to get tired. Take note that when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just take care not to get him extremely ecstatic or he will lose focus.
Teach your Irish Red And White Setter to offer you his paw
To train your Irish Red And White Setter to give you his paw, first 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 few successful tries do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You need to notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Irish Red And White Setters pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Irish Red And White Setter to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an easier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and lift your hand a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Irish Red And White Setter will believe you desire to do the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we instructed him in the previous trick. While he rises you state “high 5” and give him the snack. Once your Irish Red And White Setter has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be extremely easy to learn and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.
Teach your Irish Red And White Setter to leap through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you do not really want your Irish Red And White Setter to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Irish Red And White Setter on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Irish Red And White Setter the direction to stop sitting. At first he might attempt to go around or under the hula hoop. When this happens begin once again. Your Irish Red And White Setter wants the snack and will quickly find out that walking around or under doesn’t get it done so he will quickly begin going through it. The instant he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist high. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Irish Red And White Setter. Have patience with your Irish Red And White Setter and most of all, have fun!
