3 Tricks To Teach Your Anatolian Shepherd Dog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Anatolian Shepherd Dog

To teach your Anatolian Shepherd Dog tricks, even easy ones, you need to have in hand some tasty snacks, teach him in a secluded suitable place and try to keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Anatolian Shepherd Dog will start to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him lots of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him overly excited or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Anatolian Shepherd Dog to give you his paw

To get your Anatolian Shepherd Dog to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Then repeat this, and after a few times don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to observe that he is raising his paw upward as you state 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 response again. After just a few sessions most Anatolian Shepherd Dogs pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Anatolian Shepherd Dog to give you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a basic trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Anatolian Shepherd Dog will expect you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had taught him earlier. While he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer him the snack. When your Anatolian Shepherd Dog has mastered the paw trick this 1 will likely be really easy to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than your voice.

Teach your Anatolian Shepherd Dog to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Anatolian Shepherd Dog to harm himself while practicing the trick. Place your Anatolian Shepherd Dog on 1 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 offer the Anatolian Shepherd Dog the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to walk around or under the hula hoop. In the event that this occurs start once again. Your Anatolian Shepherd Dog wants the snack and will quickly discover that going around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll quickly begin going through it. When he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist height. If you own a smaller dog you may want to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it as he gets used to the trick.

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