To teach your Bedlington Terrier tricks, even easy ones, you should get some yummy snacks, take him to an obscure suitable place and manage to keep the training sessions to under 15 minutes or the Bedlington Terrier will start to get tired. Just remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him overly fired up or he may perhaps lose concentration.
Teach your Bedlington Terrier to give you his paw
To teach your Bedlington Terrier to offer 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 treat. Then repeat this, and after a couple of practices do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You ought to notice that he is raising his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most Bedlington Terriers pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Bedlington Terrier to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of an easier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Bedlington Terrier will presume you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we trained him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer him the treat. As soon as your Bedlington Terrier has mastered the paw trick this one should be extremely simple to master and with only a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Bedlington Terrier to leap through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Bedlington Terrier to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Bedlington Terrier on 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 Bedlington Terrier the direction to stop sitting. At first he might try to go around or under the hoop. In the event that this takes place begin once again. Your Bedlington Terrier wants the snack and will soon discover that going around or beneath does not work so he will quickly start going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually raised it to waist high. In the case that you have a smaller dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually elevate it once he gets used to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Bedlington Terrier. Have patience with your Bedlington Terrier and above all, have a good time!
