Hilarious Bull Terrier Dog Trick Compilation

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!

How to entertain your Bull Terrier at home

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.



Dog trick: Teach your Bull Terrier to hold a pole

Dog trick: Teach your Bull Terrier to hold a poleHave 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.

Clicker training with Bull Terier Mila – the bow

DULLNESS ALERT! This video to many probably shows four pretty humdrum minutes.
I made it to show my progress with the training of the bow to a forum community after changing my tactics.
Maybe it’s still informative to some simply watching the process.
I kept the audio so you’ll see when I clicked (with either right or wrong timing :).
When processing the video, of course, I also saw my own faulty clicks and timing errors. Nice that this is not able to throw the dog off track.
Currently, and as seen in the video, I try to remove the treat from my leading hand and get her to bow by just following my hand touching the ground.
Sometimes I need to pretend to take a treat or simply quickly touch her hose to get her attention back.
Later in the video I reward her for holding the pose a little longer.
Next steps will be removing the hand entirely, introducing the command and holding the pose longer.
Let’s see how long we need. 🙂
