To teach your Komondor tricks, even the simple ones, you need to get hold of some small snacks, teach him in a secluded suitable location and try to keep the coaching sessions to under 15 minutes or the Komondor will start to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just be mindful not to get him overly fired up or he could lose concentration.
Teach your Komondor to offer you his paw
To get your Komondor to give 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. Now do this again, and after a few times don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You should discover that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After a few sessions most Komondors pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Komondor to offer you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and lift your hand a little bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Komondor will presume you want to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we taught him earlier. While he rises you state “high five” and give your Komondor the snack. As soon as your Komondor has mastered the paw trick this one should be really simple to understand and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Komondor to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Komondor to harm himself while practicing the trick. Place your Komondor to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Komondor the direction to stop sitting. At first he might attempt to walk around or underneath the hoop. If this occurs begin once again. Your Komondor desires the treat and will soon learn that walking around or under doesn’t get it so he’ll quickly begin going through it. When he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist height. In the case that you have a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly raise it more as he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Komondor. Have patience with your Komondor and most of all, have a good time!
