This year we have been thinking really hard about how we want to wish you Happy Easter. Then I decided I will draw again. What? Well, of course the Easter Bunny! But when I sat down to do it … strange things happened … WHAT is THAT??? LOOK and see for yourself! As always I saved the funniest part for last. 🙂
My Bull Terrier Mila is a very creative little pooch. I don’t think her next trick will be juggling her balls. That’s probably too tricky to do with just paws. But the games she plays with her balls … Recently she re-invented dog fetching in the swimming pool. This may be the pride of the dog owner speaking, but it’s really fascinating and hilarious at the same time, how she manages to conquer her balls with patience and devotion.
Mila only managed to do this two or three times so far in the water. But she keeps practicing passionately to tackle this task, which she completely assigned to herself on her own. And I only managed to record it once! See for yourself.
This dog trick tutorial shows you how to teach your dog to weave through your legs. This impressive dog trick is actually not that hard to teach.
In my video everything looks extra perfect, because this time I forgot to shoot during the process and had to do it afterwards for the video. Mila then, of course, knew what’s coming and happily offered what I wanted her to do. So, don’t get frustrated, if your dog takes a moment to learn this dog trick. We also needed some sessions for it to be perfect.
In terms of dog tick training not everything works smoothly all the time – and why should it, training is just having a good time together. Sometimes it’s just fun to get carried away. On very good days Mila makes her own schedule of exercises and gets so excited that she is barely able to perform the movements correctly. This looks so funny sometimes, I just thought you should see it yourself.
Watch Mila doing the “doggie swirl” when she gets super excited!

As a dog owner are you wondering about how to entertain your Bull Terrier or any other dog at home? Especially during the winter time many owners feel challenged with entertaining theirs dogs at home. Here’s one fun way I use with my Bull Terrier Mila almost every day that only requires your dog’s bed, a blanket and some treats – no long preparations necessary. I usually use part of my Bull Terrier’s daily serving of kibble, so she does not get too many calories.
In my video I show you how to set up a little maze full of yummy surprises within seconds to keep your dog busy searching for about 5-10 minutes. Easy-peasy – and your dog will LOVE it! If your dog does not sit and wait until you’re finished as Mila does, just send her out of the room for a minute and then present the “treat-bed” to her as a happy surprise. 🙂 I recommend to use a dog blanket you don’t mind beint torn here and there, because in the heat of the moment it happens. This is also a way to try and slow down dogs, who use to gobble down their kibble and make them work for it while eating more slowly.
Have you ever wondered who will hold your flag on the next 4th of July parade? Mila and I have just finished a new, neat dog trick – holding a pole. In two easy video tutorial lessons we are showing you how to train the exercise with your clicker and some treats.
It took some sessions, but both of us had tons of fun with learning this trick!
PHASE 1: Reward any interaction
First you need to get your dog used to the pole or stick you are using. Many dogs tend to shy away from objects larger than themselves and objects touching them. If your dog is very sensitive and scared easily, choose a smaller object, such as an umbrella. The pole should also fit your dog’s size. Mid-sized to larger dogs will be able to hold a broom upright, while a Jack Russel Terrier may experience problems with holding the balance, while he does perfect with a large wooden spoon or so.
This is very useful, but also a little tricky. Because in the dog’s mind sometimes the bell mutates more into a butler bell – that’s when your dog starts training you. Don’t let her fool you into answering her ringing, when she is just seeking attention, because that could spark the bell to go off all the time.
Luckily over time I learned to tell, if she is ringing for “potty” or other things. In the video below you see Mila using her “potty bell” to tell me that she wants to GO … outside and play 🙂 If I smell the ruse and do not respond, this is what happens most of the time:
Bull Terrier snoring is one of the quirky habits of these funny little clowns. Here’s a sight, probably all too familiar to almost every English Bull Terrier owner regarding his dog and sleeping:
Sleeping in odd positions
I was happy to catch this on tape once. Mila sometimes wakes up with imprints in her face from the bars she is leaning against. 🙂 Sorry for the noisy TV in the background. Oddly again, she would not mind a train passing by. But once we switch the TV to mute, she will be waking up.
How to teach the dog trick CRAWLING to your Bull Terrier or other dog. As I am shooting the videos for this tutorial, Mila is learning this new trick. So the info will come in phases. Accompany us in this little adventure and follow our progress.
What you do when you teach the dog trick CRAWLING is you basically lure your dog into the crawl with the treat.
So, have your clicker and a few yummy treats ready and let’s do it!
In this video you can watch us exercising the steps described below.
Yes, those english Bull Terrier can be like fish. Watching a Bull Terrier swimming who is ball addicted – great combo! Watch Bull Terrier Mila having the time of her life with her ball in the pool all summer long. One of the funniest moments: The shaking slo-mo at the end.
