3 Tricks To Teach Your Kangal Dog
3 Tricks To Teach Your Kangal Dog

To teach your Kangal Dog tricks, even simple ones, you need to carry some yummy treats, take him to a quiet suitable location and try to keep the teaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Kangal Dog will begin to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, however be cautious not to get him extra thrilled or he could lose concentration.

Teach your Kangal Dog to give you his paw

To get your Kangal 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 snack. Next repeat this, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You need to see that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After just a few sessions most Kangal Dogs pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Kangal Dog to give you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Kangal Dog will expect you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. Once he rises you state “high five” and give your Kangal Dog the treat. As soon as your Kangal Dog has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be very easy to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Kangal Dog to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Kangal Dog to harm himself while doing the trick. Place your Kangal Dog on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Kangal Dog the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to walk around or under the hoop. In the event that this takes place start once again. Your Kangal Dog desires the treat and will quickly learn that going around or below doesn’t get it so he’ll quickly start going through it. As soon as he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist height. In the event that you have a smaller sized dog you might want to begin with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it once he gets used to the trick.

I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Kangal Dog. Have patience with your Kangal Dog and most importantly, have fun!
