3 Tricks To Teach Your Gascon Saintongeois
3 Tricks To Teach Your Gascon Saintongeois

To teach your Gascon Saintongeois tricks, even simple ones, you should have some of his favorite treats, take him to a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Gascon Saintongeois will begin to get bored. Always remember when he gets something right give him great deals of praise and a reward treat, yet take care not to get him excessively thrilled or he will lose focus.

Teach your Gascon Saintongeois to offer you his paw

To train your Gascon Saintongeois to offer you his paw, initially 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 quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You must notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction again. After a couple of sessions most Gascon Saintongeoiss pick this trick up rather quickly.

Teach your Gascon Saintongeois to give you a high five

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an easier trick, in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your two fingers and raise your hand a bit higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Gascon Saintongeois will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him in the previous trick. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and give your Gascon Saintongeois the snack. When your Gascon Saintongeois has actually mastered the paw trick this one should be very simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than from your voice.

Teach your Gascon Saintongeois to jump through a hoop

Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop higher than necessary as you do not want your Gascon Saintongeois to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Gascon Saintongeois on 1 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 Gascon Saintongeois the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might try to go around or under the hula hoop. When this takes place start once again. Your Gascon Saintongeois wants the treat and will quickly discover that walking around or beneath does not work so he’ll quickly start going through it. The second he does, state “hoop” and offer him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started off doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist high. If you have a smaller sized dog you might want to start with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually elevate it once he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Gascon Saintongeois. Have patience with your Gascon Saintongeois and above all, have a good time!
