To teach your Grand Griffon Vendeen tricks, even the easy ones, you should always have some of his favorite snacks, teach him in a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the teaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or your Grand Griffon Vendeen will begin to get bored. Bear in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward snack, just be careful not to get him over thrilled or he might lose focus.
Teach your Grand Griffon Vendeen to give you his paw
To train your Grand Griffon Vendeen to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. After that do this again, and after a few practices don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must notice that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a couple of sessions most Grand Griffon Vendeens pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Grand Griffon Vendeen to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of a simpler trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Grand Griffon Vendeen will assume you wish to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had taught him earlier. As he reaches up you say “high five” and give your Grand Griffon Vendeen the treat. As soon as your Grand Griffon Vendeen has actually mastered the paw trick this one will likely be extremely easy to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Grand Griffon Vendeen to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Grand Griffon Vendeen to hurt himself while doing the trick. Set your Grand Griffon Vendeen to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and offer the Grand Griffon Vendeen the command to stop sitting. At first he might attempt to walk around or beneath the hula hoop. In the event that this happens begin again. Your Grand Griffon Vendeen desires the snack and will quickly find out that going around or under doesn’t get it done so he’ll soon begin going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually lifted it to waist high. On the occasion that you possess a smaller dog you may wish to begin with the hoop touching the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it as he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Grand Griffon Vendeen. Have patience with your Grand Griffon Vendeen and most importantly, have fun!
