3 Tricks To Teach Your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound

To teach your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound tricks, even the easy ones, you should get hold of some tasty treats, take him to a quiet suitable place and maintain the instruction sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him lots of praise and a reward treat, however beware not to get him extremely thrilled or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound to give you his paw

To get your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. After that repeat this, and after a couple of times do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You must notice that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After just a few sessions most Istrian Coarse-Haired Hounds pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound to offer you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of an easier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound will believe you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. While he rises you say “high 5” and offer your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound the snack. As soon as your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound has actually mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be really simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than voice control.

Teach your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound to harm himself while practicing the trick. Place your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound the direction to stop sitting. At first he might attempt to go around or under the hoop. If this takes place begin again. Your Istrian Coarse-Haired Hound desires the treat and will quickly learn that going around or underneath does not get it so he will quickly begin going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist high. If you possess a smaller sized dog you might wish to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it as he gets used to the trick.
