To teach your Braque D’Auvergne tricks, even easy ones, you should always have some of his favorite snacks, teach him in an obscure suitable location and try to keep the training sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Braque D’Auvergne will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, but be careful not to get him extremely excited or he might perhaps lose concentration.
Teach your Braque D’Auvergne to offer you his paw
To teach your Braque D’Auvergne 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. And then do it again, and after a few successful tries do not take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and after that take it. You need to observe that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he does not then go back to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After 2 or 3 sessions most Braque D’Auvergnes pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Braque D’Auvergne to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a simpler trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a treat in between your fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Braque D’Auvergne will assume you want to do the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him earlier. While he rises you state “high 5” and offer him the snack. When your Braque D’Auvergne has actually mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be really simple to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Braque D’Auvergne to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not hold the hoop too high up as you do not want your Braque D’Auvergne to harm himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Braque D’Auvergne on one side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a treat in your hand and give the Braque D’Auvergne the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may attempt to go around or under the hula hoop. If this occurs start once again. Your Braque D’Auvergne wants the snack and will quickly find out that walking around or underneath does not get it done so he will quickly start going through it. Whenever he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I began teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly raised it to waist high. In the event that you have a smaller dog you may wish to begin with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually raise it more as he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Braque D’Auvergne. Have patience with your Braque D’Auvergne and most importantly, have a good time!
