3 Tricks To Teach Your Petit Bleu De Gascogne
3 Tricks To Teach Your Petit Bleu De Gascogne

To teach your Petit Bleu De Gascogne tricks, even the simple ones, you should provide some yummy snacks, go to a quiet suitable location and manage to keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Petit Bleu De Gascogne will start to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something right offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just take care not to get him over ecstatic or he might lose focus.

Teach your Petit Bleu De Gascogne to offer you his paw

To get your Petit Bleu De Gascogne 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 treat. After that repeat this, and after a few practices do not take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You must discover that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a couple of sessions most Petit Bleu De Gascognes pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Petit Bleu De Gascogne to give you a high 5

Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in between your two fingers and lift your hand somewhat higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Petit Bleu De Gascogne will presume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the previous trick. While he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the snack. Once your Petit Bleu De Gascogne has mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be really simple to learn and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Petit Bleu De Gascogne to leap through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop higher than necessary as you don’t really want your Petit Bleu De Gascogne to injure himself while performing the trick. Set your Petit Bleu De Gascogne on one side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Petit Bleu De Gascogne the command to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. If this takes place start again. Your Petit Bleu De Gascogne wants the snack and will quickly find out that going around or underneath doesn’t work so he’ll soon begin going through it. The minute he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly lifted it to waist high. In the case that you own a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it as he gets used to the trick.

I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Petit Bleu De Gascogne. Have patience with your Petit Bleu De Gascogne and above all, have a good time!
