3 Tricks To Teach Your Norwich Terrier
3 Tricks To Teach Your Norwich Terrier

To teach your Norwich Terrier tricks, even simple ones, you need to carry some good treats, take him to a remote suitable place and always keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Norwich Terrier will begin to get tired. Just remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just take care not to get him excessively fired up or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Norwich Terrier to give you his paw

To teach your Norwich Terrier to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. After that do it again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After a few sessions most Norwich Terriers pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Norwich Terrier to offer you a high 5

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Norwich Terrier will presume you want to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we trained him previously. As he reaches up you say “high five” and give him the treat. As soon as your Norwich Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be very easy to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal instead of from your voice.

Teach your Norwich Terrier to leap 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 as you do not want your Norwich Terrier to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Norwich Terrier on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Norwich Terrier the command to stop sitting. At first he may try to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. When this occurs start once again. Your Norwich Terrier wants the snack and will quickly discover that going around or below does not get it done so he will quickly start going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist high. In case you possess a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it once he gets used to the trick.

I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Norwich Terrier. Have patience with your Norwich Terrier and most importantly, have a good time!
