3 Tricks To Teach Your Silken Windhound

To teach your Silken Windhound tricks, even the simple ones, you need to get hold of some good snacks, go to a secluded suitable place and maintain the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Silken Windhound will start to get tired. Just remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just be cautious not to get him extra ecstatic or he will lose focus.

Teach your Silken Windhound to give you his paw

To teach your Silken Windhound to offer 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 few practices don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You need to notice that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After a few sessions most Silken Windhounds pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Silken Windhound to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Silken Windhound will believe you desire 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 say “high five” and give your Silken Windhound the snack. When your Silken Windhound has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be really easy to master and with just a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.

Teach your Silken Windhound to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Silken Windhound to hurt himself while performing the trick. Place your Silken Windhound on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Silken Windhound the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place start again. Your Silken Windhound desires the snack and will quickly discover that going around or underneath doesn’t get it done so he will soon start going through it. The minute he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist height. In case you have a smaller dog you may want to begin with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually raise it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.
