To teach your Blue Paul Terrier tricks, even the simple ones, you should always have some small snacks, be in a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Blue Paul Terrier will start to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something right give him lots of praise and a reward snack, just be cautious not to get him over fired up or he may perhaps lose focus.
Teach your Blue Paul Terrier to offer you his paw
To teach your Blue Paul 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 treat. And then do this again, and after a couple of tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You need to notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Blue Paul Terriers pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Blue Paul Terrier to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a simpler trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Blue Paul Terrier will presume you want to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we instructed him earlier. As he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer your Blue Paul Terrier the snack. When your Blue Paul Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than vocal commands.
Teach your Blue Paul Terrier to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high up as you do not want your Blue Paul Terrier to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Blue Paul Terrier to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Blue Paul Terrier the command to stop sitting. At first he may try to walk around or under the hula hoop. If this occurs begin again. Your Blue Paul Terrier wants the treat and will soon learn that walking around or under doesn’t work so he’ll soon start going through it. If he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist high. On the occasion that you own a smaller sized dog you may desire to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it once he gets used to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Blue Paul Terrier. Have patience with your Blue Paul Terrier and above all, have a good time!
