To teach your Braque Francais tricks, even simple ones, you need to always have some small snacks, be in an obscure suitable place and keep the instruction sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Braque Francais will begin to get bored. Take note that when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just beware not to get him excessively thrilled or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Braque Francais to give you his paw
To get your Braque Francais to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. And then do it again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must observe that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After just a couple of sessions most Braque Francaiss pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Braque Francais to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a progression of a basic trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Braque Francais will think you want to do the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we trained him in the previous trick. As he reaches up you state “high 5” and offer him the snack. As soon as your Braque Francais has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be very simple to understand and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.
Teach your Braque Francais to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t want your Braque Francais to hurt himself while carrying out the trick. Set your Braque Francais to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Braque Francais the direction to stop sitting. In the beginning he might try to walk around or underneath the hoop. In the event that this happens start once again. Your Braque Francais desires the treat and will soon discover that going around or under doesn’t work so he’ll quickly start going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the ground and gradually lifted it to waist height. If you have a smaller sized dog you may desire to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it as he gets used to the trick.
I trust you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Braque Francais. Have patience with your Braque Francais and above all, have fun!
