To teach your Serbian Hound tricks, even the easy ones, you need to get some tasty treats, teach him in a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the learning sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Serbian Hound will begin to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct give him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just be careful not to get him over ecstatic or he might lose focus.
Teach your Serbian Hound to offer you his paw
To train your Serbian Hound to offer 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 treat. After that do this again, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You ought to discover that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After two or three sessions most Serbian Hounds pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Serbian Hound to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and raise your hand a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Serbian Hound will believe you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we taught him previously. As he reaches up you state “high five” and give him the snack. Once your Serbian Hound has actually mastered the paw trick this one ought to be very easy to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Serbian Hound to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high as you do not really want your Serbian Hound to harm himself while practicing the trick. Place your Serbian Hound on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Serbian Hound the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this occurs begin again. Your Serbian Hound wants the snack and will quickly learn that walking around or below doesn’t work so he will soon start going through it. As soon as he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly lifted it to waist high. If you own a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it once he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Serbian Hound. Have patience with your Serbian Hound and above all, have a good time!
