To teach your Black And Tan Terrier tricks, even simple ones, you should always have some of his favorite snacks, be in a quiet suitable location and maintain the teaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Black And Tan Terrier will begin to get tired. Just remember when he gets something right offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, however take care not to get him extra ecstatic or he may likely lose focus.
Teach your Black And Tan Terrier to give you his paw
To train your Black And Tan Terrier to offer 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 snack. After that do it again, and after a couple of tries don’t take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After two or three sessions most Black And Tan Terriers pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Black And Tan Terrier to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a more basic trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and raise your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Black And Tan Terrier will expect you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. As he reaches up you say “high five” and give your Black And Tan Terrier the treat. Once your Black And Tan Terrier has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be really simple to understand and with only a few sessions he will be performing it from your hand signal instead of from your voice.
Teach your Black And Tan Terrier to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you do not want your Black And Tan Terrier to hurt himself while doing the trick. Place your Black And Tan Terrier on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Black And Tan Terrier the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to walk around or beneath the hoop. When this takes place start once again. Your Black And Tan Terrier desires the snack and will soon find out that walking around or beneath doesn’t get it so he will quickly start going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually lifted it to waist high. If you have a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Black And Tan Terrier. Have patience with your Black And Tan Terrier and above all, have a good time!
