To teach your Airedale Terrier tricks, even the simple ones, you need to provide some of his favorite treats, take him to a remote suitable place and try to keep the instruction sessions to under 15 minutes or your Airedale Terrier will start to get bored. Just remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, though take care not to get him extremely excited or he might lose concentration.
Teach your Airedale Terrier to give you his paw
To get your Airedale 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. Now do it again, and after a few times do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You ought to discover that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After a couple of sessions most Airedale Terriers pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Airedale Terrier to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a more basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and lift your hand a bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Airedale Terrier will presume you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we instructed him previously. While he rises you state “high five” and give him the snack. As soon as your Airedale Terrier has mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be really simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Airedale Terrier to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Airedale Terrier to hurt himself while performing the trick. Place your Airedale Terrier to one side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Airedale Terrier the command to stop sitting. At first he may try to walk around or underneath the hoop. If this takes place begin once again. Your Airedale Terrier wants the snack and will soon learn that going around or under does not get it done so he’ll quickly begin going through it. The instant he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will quickly 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 gradually lifted it to waist height. In the event that you have a smaller sized dog you might wish to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it as he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Airedale Terrier. Have patience with your Airedale Terrier and most of all, have fun!
