To teach your Perro De Presa Canario tricks, even the simple ones, you need to have in hand some small snacks, be in an obscure suitable location and manage to keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Perro De Presa Canario will begin to get tired. Take note that when he gets something right give him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just be cautious not to get him over excited or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Perro De Presa Canario to offer you his paw
To teach your Perro De Presa Canario 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. After that do it again, and after a few practices don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You need to see that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Perro De Presa Canarios pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Perro De Presa Canario to give you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Perro De Presa Canario will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we had trained him in the previous trick. While he rises you state “high five” and offer your Perro De Presa Canario the treat. When your Perro De Presa Canario has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.
Teach your Perro De Presa Canario to jump 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 too high up as you don’t really want your Perro De Presa Canario to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Perro De Presa Canario on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Perro De Presa Canario the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or underneath the hoop. If this occurs start once again. Your Perro De Presa Canario wants the treat and will quickly learn that going around or underneath does not work so he will soon begin going through it. The minute he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly brought it to waist high. In the event that you own a smaller dog you may wish to begin with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it once he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Perro De Presa Canario. Have patience with your Perro De Presa Canario and most of all, have a good time!
