3 Tricks To Teach Your Lithuanian Hound
3 Tricks To Teach Your Lithuanian Hound

To teach your Lithuanian Hound tricks, even simple ones, you should provide some of his favorite snacks, teach him in a quiet suitable place and keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Lithuanian Hound will begin to get tired. Take note that when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, though take care not to get him too ecstatic or he will lose concentration.

Teach your Lithuanian Hound to give you his paw

To train your Lithuanian Hound to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. Now do this again, and after a few times do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You must see that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Lithuanian Hounds pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Lithuanian Hound to offer you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in between your fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Lithuanian Hound will believe you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we instructed him earlier. While he reaches up you say “high five” and offer your Lithuanian Hound the snack. When your Lithuanian Hound has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely easy to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.

Teach your Lithuanian Hound to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t want your Lithuanian Hound to hurt himself while performing the trick. Place your Lithuanian Hound to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Lithuanian Hound the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to go around or below the hula hoop. When this takes place start once again. Your Lithuanian Hound desires the treat and will soon discover that going around or underneath doesn’t work so he will quickly begin going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist height. In the event that you have a smaller dog you might wish to start with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it more once he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Lithuanian Hound. Have patience with your Lithuanian Hound and above all, have a good time!
