3 Tricks To Teach Your Lagotto Romagnolo

To teach your Lagotto Romagnolo tricks, even the easy ones, you need to always have some of his favorite snacks, go to a secluded suitable location and maintain the teaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Lagotto Romagnolo will start to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just take care not to get him excessively fired up or he might lose focus.

Teach your Lagotto Romagnolo to give you his paw

To get your Lagotto Romagnolo to offer 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. Then repeat this, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You need to observe that he is raising his paw up as you say 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 two or three sessions most Lagotto Romagnolos pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Lagotto Romagnolo to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your fingers and lift your hand a little bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Lagotto Romagnolo will think you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had taught him in the previous trick. While he reaches up you state “high five” and offer your Lagotto Romagnolo the treat. Once your Lagotto Romagnolo has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be really simple to understand and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Lagotto Romagnolo to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Lagotto Romagnolo to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Place your Lagotto Romagnolo on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Lagotto Romagnolo the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might try to go around or underneath the hula hoop. If this takes place start again. Your Lagotto Romagnolo wants the snack and will quickly find out that going around or beneath does not get it so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The minute he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually increased it to waist high. If you own a smaller sized dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it more once he gets used to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Lagotto Romagnolo. Have patience with your Lagotto Romagnolo and most importantly, have fun!
