To teach your Polish Hunting Dog tricks, even the easy ones, you need to get some small snacks, be in a quiet suitable location and manage to keep the instruction sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Polish Hunting Dog will start to get tired. Always remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, yet take care not to get him excessively ecstatic or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Polish Hunting Dog to give you his paw
To train your Polish Hunting 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 offer him a treat. After that do this again, and after a few times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You must see that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After two or three sessions most Polish Hunting Dogs pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Polish Hunting Dog to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a more basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand just a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Polish Hunting Dog will think you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we instructed him in the prior trick. As he rises you say “high 5” and offer him the treat. When your Polish Hunting Dog has mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be extremely easy to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than from your voice.
Teach your Polish Hunting Dog to jump through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Polish Hunting Dog to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Polish Hunting Dog on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Polish Hunting Dog the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to go around or under the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place begin again. Your Polish Hunting Dog wants the treat and will soon discover that walking around or under doesn’t get it so he will soon start going through it. The instant he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly lifted it to waist high. On the occasion that you have a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it once he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Polish Hunting Dog. Have patience with your Polish Hunting Dog and most importantly, have fun!
