boston terrier with mailGetting the mail (or the newspaper) is a fun trick to teach your Boston Terrierr.

You should always use the same verbiage when attempting to teach your dog new tricks. So for the purpose of this trick decide on a “command” and stick with it, ex: “get the paper.”

Of course your dog isn’t going to know what the heck “get the paper” means right off the bat, so the first few times, you should demonstrate. Pick up the paper and put it in your dog’s mouth.

When you want to give it back to you, say “leave it” or “drop it” and offer a treat in exchange.

Here’s a video of the trick being enacted!
