3 Tricks To Teach Your Patterdale Terrier
3 Tricks To Teach Your Patterdale Terrier

To teach your Patterdale Terrier tricks, even the easy ones, you need to carry some small snacks, be in a quiet suitable place and hold the training sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Patterdale Terrier will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct give him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, just take care not to get him overly fired up or he might possibly lose concentration.

Teach your Patterdale Terrier to give you his paw

To get your Patterdale Terrier to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Next repeat this, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You should observe that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After a few sessions most Patterdale Terriers pick this trick up quite easily.

Teach your Patterdale Terrier to offer you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your two fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Patterdale Terrier will expect you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had trained him in the prior trick. As he rises you state “high five” and give your Patterdale Terrier the snack. When your Patterdale Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be very simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than your voice.

Teach your Patterdale Terrier to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Patterdale Terrier to injure himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Patterdale Terrier on one 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 give the Patterdale Terrier the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or under the hoop. When this occurs start once again. Your Patterdale Terrier desires the treat and will soon learn that going around or beneath does not get it so he’ll quickly begin going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon 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 slowly lifted it to waist height. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you may desire to begin with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it once he gets accustomed to the trick.

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