To teach your Sporting Lucas Terrier tricks, even the simple ones, you should have in hand some of his favorite treats, take him to a remote suitable place and manage to keep the teaching sessions to under 15 minutes or your Sporting Lucas Terrier will begin to get bored. Don’t forget that when he gets something right give him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, but take care not to get him too excited or he could lose concentration.
Teach your Sporting Lucas Terrier to give you his paw
To train your Sporting Lucas Terrier to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. Next do this again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You need to notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After just a few sessions most Sporting Lucas Terriers pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Sporting Lucas Terrier to offer you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and raise your hand somewhat higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Sporting Lucas Terrier will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we had taught him earlier. As he reaches up you state “high 5” and give him the snack. Once your Sporting Lucas Terrier has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very easy to learn and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than from your voice.
Teach your Sporting Lucas Terrier to leap 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 really want your Sporting Lucas Terrier to hurt himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Sporting Lucas Terrier on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Sporting Lucas Terrier the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to walk around or beneath the hula hoop. In the event that this occurs begin again. Your Sporting Lucas Terrier wants the snack and will quickly find out that going around or beneath does not get it so he’ll quickly start going through it. Once he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I initially started doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually lifted it to waist height. In the case that you own a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly raise it once he gets used to the trick.
