3 Tricks To Teach Your Jack Russell Terrier

To teach your Jack Russell Terrier tricks, even easy ones, you should get hold of some small snacks, teach him in a secluded suitable place and always keep the training sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Jack Russell Terrier will begin to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just beware not to get him extra fired up or he might lose focus.

Teach your Jack Russell Terrier to give you his paw

To teach your Jack Russell Terrier to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Now do it again, and after a few practices do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You should notice that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a few sessions most Jack Russell Terriers pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Jack Russell Terrier to offer you a high five

Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a more basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in between your fingers and lift your hand just a bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Jack Russell Terrier will presume you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we taught him earlier. While he rises you state “high 5” and give him the treat. Once your Jack Russell Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be really easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.

Teach your Jack Russell Terrier to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you do not want your Jack Russell Terrier to harm himself while performing the trick. Place your Jack Russell Terrier on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Jack Russell Terrier the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he may try to walk around or below the hula hoop. In the event that this takes place begin again. Your Jack Russell Terrier wants the treat and will quickly discover that going around or under doesn’t get it so he will soon start going through it. Whenever he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist height. In the event that you possess a smaller sized dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly elevate it more once he gets used to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Jack Russell Terrier. Have patience with your Jack Russell Terrier and above all, have a good time!
