How To Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais To Sit

Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais to Sit

Are you making an attempt to teach your Braque Du Bourbonnais to sit? The skill of sitting up is quite easily taught to pocket-sized dogs, though much larger canines are a different story. It is hard for them to keep their equilibrium.

Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais to Sit: Prep

Sitting is one of the initial techniques that should be taught to a Braque Du Bourbonnais and forms the ground work for myriad other techniques. To train a Braque Du Bourbonnais to sit up, put together some treats as a reward, and set the Braque Du Bourbonnais on her backside in the corner, so that she can’t fall either backward or sideways and has very little or no room to lose balance.

Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais to Sit: Familiarize Her With The Phrase

Protect her from tilting towards you by sticking your hand under her chin and using the other hand dangle her snack above her face. Keep repeating clearly and deliberately, “sit up.” Don’t make her sit up too long at one time, but repeat the instruction frequently and reward her frequently with plenty of appreciation and treats.

Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais to Sit: Help Her Maintain Balance

During her very first lesson she will need considerable support from you to keep her from pitching forward, but as she gains control of the muscles and understands what you want her to do, she will depend less and less upon your hand to hold her steady. Then you can gradually give your Braque Du Bourbonnais less help and support until you will basically have to keep one hand in position 2 or 3 inches from her neck or chin, to be set to stop her falling forward; in the future you can easily take away this hand entirely and simply hold the snack right above the level of your Braque Du Bourbonnais’s head.

Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais To Sit: Remove the Aids Slowly

After consistent training your Braque Du Bourbonnais will stay seated well after you make her. The next step is she should be set up against your wall, so as to provide her a support for her back only. When she has gotten the knack of this and can maintain her position easily, rehearse with her using chair legs, cushions or other things that offer her less and less assistance. Ultimately she will grasp how to keep her stability and sit up without something to lean on.

Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais to Sit: Putting It All Together

Throughout all these lessons the words "sit up" will have been ingrained upon her mind with the assistance of regular repetition. Now here's the final training to teach your Braque Du Bourbonnais to sit up whenever she hears the words. Chances are, if she has been carefully taught, you will simply have to call her out into the room, display a treat, hold it up a suitable distance from the floor, say "sit up or sit" and she'll obey. Then you'll just give her the snack while still in place.

The only requirement for flawlessness is to rehearse with her multiple times a day until she sits up when told and without being shown a snack; give her the rewards only after she has obeyed the order.

Teach Your Braque Du Bourbonnais Other Tricks

You have now the method for teaching your Braque Du Bourbonnais many other skills. She can now learn to beg by moving your hand up and down in front of her paws, which she will move in coordination with yours. She can also learn to salute by moving one paw to the side of her head, or to keep a wooden pipe in her mouth, or to wear a cap on her head or wear other articles of clothing.

When instructing a Braque Du Bourbonnais to tolerate being clothed, don't try to get her to wear too many things at the same time. Try her at first with a cap. Once she becomes adjusted to that you could put on a jacket and slowly introduce her to more clothing.

Delight in "teaching your Braque Du Bourbonnais the sit up trick" and most importantly have fun in the process!
