To teach your Toy Bulldog tricks, even easy ones, you should get hold of some of his favorite treats, take him to a remote suitable location and always keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Toy Bulldog will start to get tired. Take note that when he gets something right give him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, however take care not to get him extra ecstatic or he might lose focus.
Teach your Toy Bulldog to offer you his paw
To get your Toy Bulldog to give 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 snack. After that do this again, and after a few tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most Toy Bulldogs pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Toy Bulldog to give you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of an easier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your fingers and lift your hand a bit higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Toy Bulldog will believe you want to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had trained him in the previous trick. Once he rises you state “high five” and offer him the snack. As soon as your Toy Bulldog has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of voice control.
Teach your Toy Bulldog to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Toy Bulldog to harm himself while performing the trick. Set your Toy Bulldog to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Toy Bulldog the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to walk around or below the hula hoop. If this occurs begin again. Your Toy Bulldog desires the snack and will quickly find out that going around or below does not work so he will soon start going through it. As soon as he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist high. In case you possess a smaller dog you may desire to start with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Toy Bulldog. Have patience with your Toy Bulldog and most importantly, have a good time!
