3 Tricks To Teach Your Irish Setter

To teach your Irish Setter tricks, even easy ones, you need to get some yummy snacks, teach him in a quiet suitable place and try to keep the learning sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Irish Setter will begin to get bored. Take note that when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, but beware not to get him excessively ecstatic or he will lose focus.

Teach your Irish Setter to offer you his paw

To teach your Irish Setter to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Next do this again, and after a few times do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to see that he is raising his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a few sessions most Irish Setters pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Irish Setter to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Irish Setter will think you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had taught him in the previous trick. While he rises you say “high 5” and offer your Irish Setter the snack. When your Irish Setter has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be really simple to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Irish Setter to jump through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Irish Setter to injure himself while performing the trick. Place your Irish Setter to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Irish Setter the command to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to go around or underneath the hoop. If this happens begin again. Your Irish Setter wants the treat and will quickly discover that going around or underneath does not get it so he’ll soon begin going through it. When he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist high. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more as he gets used to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Irish Setter. Have patience with your Irish Setter and most of all, have a good time!
