To teach your Sealyham Terrier tricks, even easy ones, you need to provide some delicious treats, take him to a remote suitable location and keep the instruction sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Sealyham Terrier will begin to get tired. Bear in mind when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, though take care not to get him overly ecstatic or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Sealyham Terrier to give you his paw
To train your Sealyham Terrier to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Now do this again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You ought to discover that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After two or three sessions most Sealyham Terriers pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Sealyham Terrier to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an easier trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in between your fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Sealyham Terrier will believe you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you state “high five” and offer your Sealyham Terrier the snack. As soon as your Sealyham Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this one will likely be extremely easy to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal instead of voice control.
Teach your Sealyham Terrier to leap through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Sealyham Terrier to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Sealyham Terrier to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Sealyham Terrier the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might try to walk around or below the hoop. If this takes place begin once again. Your Sealyham Terrier wants the treat and will soon learn that going around or underneath does not get it done so he will quickly begin going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll soon be jumping 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 floor and slowly raised it to waist height. On the occasion that you have a smaller dog you might wish to begin with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Sealyham Terrier. Have patience with your Sealyham Terrier and above all, have fun!
