To teach your Perro De Presa Mallorquin tricks, even easy ones, you should get some delicious snacks, be in a quiet suitable location and hold the teaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Perro De Presa Mallorquin will start to get bored. Take note that when he gets something right offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just beware not to get him over ecstatic or he will lose focus.
Teach your Perro De Presa Mallorquin to offer you his paw
To teach your Perro De Presa Mallorquin to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say 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. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You should see that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After a few sessions most Perro De Presa Mallorquins pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Perro De Presa Mallorquin to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a simpler trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and lift your hand a little bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Perro De Presa Mallorquin will think you want to do the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we had trained him previously. As he reaches up you state “high 5” and give him the treat. As soon as your Perro De Presa Mallorquin has mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be really simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Perro De Presa Mallorquin to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Perro De Presa Mallorquin to harm himself while performing the trick. Set your Perro De Presa Mallorquin on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Perro De Presa Mallorquin the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to walk around or below the hoop. In the event that this occurs begin again. Your Perro De Presa Mallorquin wants the treat and will quickly discover that walking around or below does not get it so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly increased it to waist height. In the event that you have a smaller dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it as he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Perro De Presa Mallorquin. Have patience with your Perro De Presa Mallorquin and most of all, have a good time!
