To teach your Rampur Greyhound tricks, even the simple ones, you need to have in hand some delicious treats, take him to a quiet suitable location and keep the teaching sessions to under 15 minutes or the Rampur Greyhound will begin to get tired. Remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him too thrilled or he will lose focus.
Teach your Rampur Greyhound to offer you his paw
To train your Rampur Greyhound to offer 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 couple of successful tries don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You should see that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Rampur Greyhounds pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Rampur Greyhound to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an easier trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Rampur Greyhound will believe you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him previously. Once he reaches up you state “high five” and offer him the snack. As soon as your Rampur Greyhound has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely simple to master and with just a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Rampur Greyhound to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Rampur Greyhound to harm himself while performing the trick. Set your Rampur Greyhound on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Rampur Greyhound the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or below the hoop. In the event that this takes place begin again. Your Rampur Greyhound desires the snack and will quickly find out that going around or under doesn’t work so he will soon start going through it. The moment he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist height. In the case that you have a smaller sized dog you may want to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it more as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Rampur Greyhound. Have patience with your Rampur Greyhound and most importantly, have a good time!
