To teach your Australian Silky Terrier tricks, even easy ones, you should carry some small treats, go to a secluded suitable place and manage to keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Australian Silky Terrier will start to get bored. Remember when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, however beware not to get him overly fired up or he could lose concentration.
Teach your Australian Silky Terrier to offer you his paw
To get your Australian Silky Terrier to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Now do it again, and after a few successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You should discover that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response again. After a couple of sessions most Australian Silky Terriers pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Australian Silky Terrier to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Australian Silky Terrier will presume you want to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had instructed him previously. As he rises you state “high 5” and give your Australian Silky Terrier the treat. As soon as your Australian Silky Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 ought to be really simple to learn and with only a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Australian Silky Terrier to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not really want your Australian Silky Terrier to injure himself while performing the trick. Place your Australian Silky Terrier on one side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Australian Silky Terrier the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or under the hula hoop. When this takes place begin once again. Your Australian Silky Terrier desires the snack and will soon find out that going around or beneath doesn’t work so he will soon begin going through it. If he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually increased it to waist high. In the case that you own a smaller dog you might desire to begin with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Australian Silky Terrier. Have patience with your Australian Silky Terrier and most importantly, have fun!
