Trainers may give them snacks or food to encourage a Schapendoes, but definitely you should not overuse it.

4. When you are executing commands, keep your inflection pleasant so that the Schapendoes will cheerfully follow the instructions. Schapendoess respond to a low and coaxing tone. If you scream, he could get unresponsive and afraid.
5. Train the Schapendoes in varying spaces. When you keep the Schapendoes in a certain environment like your home, he might not have the ability to adapt to a different location with new people.
