To teach your Black Russian Terrier tricks, even simple ones, you need to get hold of some of his favorite snacks, be in a quiet suitable place and maintain the coaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Black Russian Terrier will begin to get tired. Bear in mind when he gets something correct give him lots of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him over fired up or he may lose concentration.
Teach your Black Russian Terrier to give you his paw
To get your Black Russian Terrier to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Now repeat this, and after a couple of times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You should observe that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response once again. After just a couple of sessions most Black Russian Terriers pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Black Russian Terrier to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an easier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Black Russian Terrier will expect you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had taught him previously. While he reaches up you state “high five” and give him the treat. As soon as your Black Russian Terrier has mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be very simple to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Black Russian Terrier to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Black Russian Terrier to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Black Russian Terrier to one side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Black Russian Terrier the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to go around or under the hula hoop. In the event that this happens start again. Your Black Russian Terrier desires the snack and will soon learn that walking around or underneath doesn’t get it done so he’ll soon begin going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually increased it to waist high. If you possess a smaller sized dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Black Russian Terrier. Have patience with your Black Russian Terrier and most of all, have a good time!
