3 Tricks To Teach Your Scottish Terrier

To teach your Scottish Terrier tricks, even the easy ones, you need to have in hand some small treats, be in a remote suitable place and hold the learning sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Scottish Terrier will start to get bored. Just remember when he gets something correct give him lots of praise and a reward snack, just take care not to get him too ecstatic or he might lose concentration.

Teach your Scottish Terrier to give you his paw

To train your Scottish 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. Next do this again, and after a few tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You must discover that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After a few sessions most Scottish Terriers pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Scottish Terrier to give you a high 5

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Scottish Terrier will expect you desire to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we trained him previously. As he rises you say “high 5” and give your Scottish Terrier the snack. When your Scottish Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be extremely simple to master and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Scottish Terrier to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Scottish Terrier to hurt himself while performing the trick. Place your Scottish 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 Scottish Terrier the command to stop sitting. At first he may try to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this happens start once again. Your Scottish Terrier wants the snack and will soon discover that walking around or below does not work so he will soon begin going through it. The instant he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist height. In the case that you possess a smaller dog you might desire to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.

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