3 Tricks To Teach Your Kerry Blue Terrier

To teach your Kerry Blue Terrier tricks, even simple ones, you need to have some small snacks, teach him in a quiet suitable place and always keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Kerry Blue Terrier will start to get tired. Don’t forget that when he gets something correct give him lots of praise and a reward treat, just be mindful not to get him too thrilled or he will lose focus.

Teach your Kerry Blue Terrier to give you his paw

To get your Kerry Blue 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 offer him a snack. After that repeat this, and after a couple of times don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must observe that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response once again. After a few sessions most Kerry Blue Terriers pick this trick up quite quickly.

Teach your Kerry Blue Terrier to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your two fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Kerry Blue Terrier will assume you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. While he rises you say “high 5” and offer your Kerry Blue Terrier the treat. Once your Kerry Blue Terrier has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very easy to understand and with just a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Kerry Blue Terrier to leap through a hoop

Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Kerry Blue Terrier to harm himself while practicing the trick. Set your Kerry Blue Terrier on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Kerry Blue Terrier the command to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to walk around or below the hula hoop. If this takes place start again. Your Kerry Blue Terrier desires the treat and will quickly learn that going around or below does not work so he will soon begin going through it. As soon as he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly brought it to waist high. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it as he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Kerry Blue Terrier. Have patience with your Kerry Blue Terrier and most of all, have a good time!
