To teach your Armenian Gampr Dog tricks, even the simple ones, you should get some of his favorite treats, take him to a quiet suitable location and try to keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Armenian Gampr Dog will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something right give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just take care not to get him extra fired up or he might lose concentration.
Teach your Armenian Gampr Dog to offer you his paw
To teach your Armenian Gampr Dog to offer 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. After that repeat this, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You must observe that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After a few sessions most Armenian Gampr Dogs pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Armenian Gampr Dog to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in between your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Armenian Gampr Dog will presume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we taught him in the previous trick. As he rises you say “high five” and give him the treat. As soon as your Armenian Gampr Dog has mastered the paw trick this one ought to be extremely simple to understand and with only a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of voice control.
Teach your Armenian Gampr Dog to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you do not really want your Armenian Gampr Dog to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Armenian Gampr Dog to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Armenian Gampr Dog the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to walk around or below the hula hoop. If this takes place start again. Your Armenian Gampr Dog desires the treat and will soon find out that going around or below does not work so he will quickly start going through it. When he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist height. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you may wish to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it once he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Armenian Gampr Dog. Have patience with your Armenian Gampr Dog and above all, have fun!
