To teach your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog tricks, even easy ones, you need to carry some small treats, take him to a quiet suitable location and try to keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog will begin to get tired. Bear in mind when he gets something right give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just beware not to get him extremely excited or he may lose focus.
Teach your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog to give you his paw
To train your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle 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 offer him a treat. And then do this again, and after a few tries do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You must notice that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After a couple of sessions most Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your two fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog will presume you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. While he reaches up you state “high five” and give your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog the treat. Once your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog has mastered the paw trick this one ought to be really easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle 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 Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may try to walk around or beneath the hoop. If this occurs begin again. Your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog wants the treat and will soon find out that walking around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll quickly start going through it. The moment he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually brought it to waist high. On the occasion that you have a smaller dog you might desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it as he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog. Have patience with your Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog and above all, have fun!
