To teach your Carpathian Shepherd Dog tricks, even the simple ones, you should have in hand some delicious treats, be in an obscure suitable location and keep the teaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Carpathian Shepherd Dog will begin to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something right give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, but be careful not to get him excessively thrilled or he might lose focus.
Teach your Carpathian Shepherd Dog to give you his paw
To get your Carpathian Shepherd Dog to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Then do this again, and after a few tries do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You ought to discover that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Carpathian Shepherd Dogs pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Carpathian Shepherd Dog to offer you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a simpler trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in between your fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Carpathian Shepherd Dog will expect you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we instructed him earlier. While he rises you state “high 5” and give him the snack. As soon as your Carpathian Shepherd Dog has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Carpathian Shepherd Dog to leap through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not want your Carpathian Shepherd Dog to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Carpathian Shepherd Dog on 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 Carpathian Shepherd Dog the command to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to go around or below the hula hoop. When this happens begin again. Your Carpathian Shepherd Dog desires the treat and will soon discover that walking around or beneath does not get it done so he will soon begin going through it. The second he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly brought it to waist height. On the occasion that you have a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it as he gets used to the trick.
I know you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Carpathian Shepherd Dog. Have patience with your Carpathian Shepherd Dog and most of all, have a good time!
