3 Tricks To Teach Your Ratonero Valenciano
3 Tricks To Teach Your Ratonero Valenciano

To teach your Ratonero Valenciano tricks, even simple ones, you should get some small treats, take him to a secluded suitable location and hold the instruction sessions to under 15 minutes or your Ratonero Valenciano will start to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something correct give him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, but take care not to get him over excited or he might possibly lose concentration.

Teach your Ratonero Valenciano to offer you his paw

To teach your Ratonero Valenciano to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Now repeat this, and after a couple of successful tries don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You need to see that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After just a few sessions most Ratonero Valencianos pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Ratonero Valenciano to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an easier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and lift your hand a little bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Ratonero Valenciano will assume you want to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we taught him earlier. Once he reaches up you say “high five” and give him the snack. As soon as your Ratonero Valenciano has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be extremely simple to learn and with only a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Ratonero Valenciano to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Ratonero Valenciano to injure himself while doing the trick. Set your Ratonero Valenciano to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Ratonero Valenciano the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to go around or underneath the hoop. When this takes place start again. Your Ratonero Valenciano wants the snack and will quickly discover that walking around or underneath does not get it done so he’ll soon begin going through it. The second he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing 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. If you own a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it as he gets accustomed to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Ratonero Valenciano. Have patience with your Ratonero Valenciano and most of all, have fun!
