To teach your Bull Terrier tricks, even simple ones, you should provide some small snacks, teach him in an obscure suitable location and try to keep the learning sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Bull Terrier will begin to get tired. Bear in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just be cautious not to get him extra thrilled or he may likely lose focus.
Teach your Bull Terrier to give you his paw
To train your Bull 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 offer him a treat. And then do it again, and after a couple of times don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and then after that take it. You ought to discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most Bull Terriers pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Bull Terrier to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your two fingers and raise your hand just a bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Bull Terrier will expect you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the prior trick. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer him the treat. When your Bull Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this one should be extremely easy to master and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than your voice.
Teach your Bull Terrier to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high as you do not want your Bull Terrier to hurt himself while doing the trick. Place your Bull Terrier to one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and offer the Bull Terrier the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to go around or underneath the hula hoop. In the event that this happens begin once again. Your Bull Terrier desires the snack and will quickly find out that walking around or beneath does not get it done so he will quickly start going through it. When he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I first started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist height. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you might want to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Bull Terrier. Have patience with your Bull Terrier and above all, have fun!
