To teach your Japanese Terrier tricks, even the simple ones, you should get hold of some savory snacks, go to a quiet suitable location and maintain the teaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Japanese Terrier will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward snack, just be mindful not to get him over fired up or he may possibly lose focus.
Teach your Japanese Terrier to offer you his paw
To teach your Japanese 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. Then repeat this, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You must 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 same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Japanese Terriers pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Japanese Terrier to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an easier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and raise your hand just a little higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Japanese Terrier will believe you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had trained him in the previous trick. Once he reaches up you state “high five” and give your Japanese Terrier the snack. As soon as your Japanese Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be really easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Japanese Terrier to jump through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Japanese Terrier to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Japanese Terrier to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Japanese Terrier the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to go around or underneath the hoop. If this takes place begin once again. Your Japanese Terrier desires the snack and will quickly find out that going around or under does not get it so he’ll soon begin going through it. When he does, say “hoop” and offer him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually increased it to waist height. In the case that you possess a smaller sized dog you may desire to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it more as he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Japanese Terrier. Have patience with your Japanese Terrier and most importantly, have fun!
