To teach your Slovak Cuvac tricks, even the easy ones, you should get hold of some delicious snacks, go to a quiet suitable place and try to keep the training sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Slovak Cuvac will begin to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, yet take care not to get him extremely thrilled or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Slovak Cuvac to offer you his paw
To train your Slovak Cuvac to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Next repeat this, and after a couple of practices don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You ought to observe that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction again. After just a few sessions most Slovak Cuvacs pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Slovak Cuvac to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an easier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Slovak Cuvac will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we taught him in the prior trick. While he rises you state “high 5” and give your Slovak Cuvac the snack. As soon as your Slovak Cuvac has mastered the paw trick this one should be extremely simple to understand and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your Slovak Cuvac to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Slovak Cuvac to harm himself while performing the trick. Set your Slovak Cuvac 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 Slovak Cuvac the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or under the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place start once again. Your Slovak Cuvac wants the snack and will soon learn 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 leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly raised it to waist high. In the event that you have a smaller dog you might want to begin with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Slovak Cuvac. Have patience with your Slovak Cuvac and above all, have a good time!
