To teach your Briquet Griffon Vendeen tricks, even simple ones, you should get hold of some small treats, be in a quiet suitable location and hold the teaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Briquet Griffon Vendeen will begin to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something right offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, however be mindful not to get him extremely thrilled or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Briquet Griffon Vendeen to offer you his paw
To train your Briquet Griffon Vendeen to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Now do this again, and after a few tries don’t take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and then take it. You must notice that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction once again. After two or three sessions most Briquet Griffon Vendeens pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Briquet Griffon Vendeen to offer you a high 5
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, in this case it’s the paw trick. Place a treat in your two fingers and lift your hand a little higher than you would for the paw trick. Your Briquet Griffon Vendeen will believe you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we taught him earlier. Once he reaches up you say “high 5” and give him the treat. As soon as your Briquet Griffon Vendeen has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very simple to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Briquet Griffon Vendeen to jump through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Briquet Griffon Vendeen to hurt himself while practicing the trick. Set your Briquet Griffon Vendeen to one side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Briquet Griffon Vendeen the command to stop sitting. At first he might try to go around or beneath the hoop. In the event that this occurs start once again. Your Briquet Griffon Vendeen wants the treat and will quickly learn that going around or under does not get it so he’ll soon start going through it. Whenever he does, state “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist height. If you possess a smaller dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly lift it as he gets used to the trick.
I know you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Briquet Griffon Vendeen. Have patience with your Briquet Griffon Vendeen and above all, have fun!
