Are you trying to teach your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to sit? The technique of sitting up is quickly taught to small dogs, but bigger pet dogs are another story. It’s difficult for them to sustain their equilibrium.
Teach Your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to Sit: Preparation
Sitting is one of the very first tricks that should be taught to a Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir and lays the groundwork for a lot of other tricks. To train a Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to sit up, prep some treats as a reward, and place your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir 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 Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to Sit: Familiarize Her With The Command
Keep her from falling to the front by securing 1 hand underneath her chin and using the second hand dangle the reward above the Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir’s face. Keep saying clearly and intelligibly, “sit.” Do not force her to sit up for too long at one time, but do repeat the lesson frequently and reward her frequently with lots of kudos and snacks.
Teach Your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to Sit: Help Her Stay Balanced
In her very first lesson your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir will require significant support from you to stop her from falling forward, but as she gains control of her stabilizing muscles and sees what you want her to do, she’ll count less upon your hand to hold her in position. Then you can gradually give your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir less assistance until you’ll basically have to leave one hand in position two or three inches from her neck or chin, to be waiting to stop her falling forward; eventually you can probably take away the hand completely and merely hold the reward just above the level of her face.
Teach Your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir To Sit: Remove the Help Progressively
With regular training your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir will sit up for a long time after you get her to sit. The next step is she should be set up against the wall, so as to provide her a support for her back. After she has understood this and can maintain her posture effortlessly, practice with her against chair legs, cushions or other things that offer her less and less assistance. At some point she will figure out how to preserve her equilibrium and sit in the absence of anything to lean against.
Teach Your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to Sit: Putting It All Together
During the course of all this training the command "sit up" will have been impressed upon her subconscious through persistent repetition. Now is the final lesson to teach your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to sit up immediately after she hears the words. It's highly likely, if she has been carefully instructed, you will just have to get her out in the room, show a snack, hold it up a suitable distance from the floor, say "sit up" and she will obey. Then you'll just give her the snack while still in place.
The only requirement for flawlessness is to rehearse with your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir several times daily until she sits when told and without being shown a treat; give her the treats only after she has adhered to the direction.
Teach Your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir Other Tricks
You have now the basis for teaching your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir many other tricks. She now can learn to beg by waving your hand up and down in front of her paws, which she'll move in coordination with yours. She can also learn to salute by bringing one paw to the side of her head, or to keep an object in her mouth, or to wear a cap on her head or wear other clothes.
While training a Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir to accept being clothed, don't try to make her wear too many garments at once. Try her at first with just a hat. Soon after she gets adjusted to that you can put on a jacket and gradually introduce her to more clothes.
Enjoy "teaching your Chien Francais Blanc Et Noir the sit up trick" and most importantly have fun in the process!
