Then you can gradually give her less help and support till you will simply have to keep one hand in position 2 or 3 inches from her chin or neck, to be ready to stop her from falling forward; eventually you can most likely remove your hand and simply dangle the treat right above the height of your French Bulldog’s face.

Teach Your French Bulldog Other Tricks

She can now be taught how to beg by waving your hand up and down just in front of her paws, which she will move in coordination with yours.
