To teach your Basset Fauve De Bretagne tricks, even simple ones, you should carry some delicious treats, go to a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the teaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Basset Fauve De Bretagne will start to get tired. Remember when he gets something right give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, however beware not to get him over thrilled or he can lose focus.
Teach your Basset Fauve De Bretagne to offer you his paw
To train your Basset Fauve De Bretagne 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 snack. Next do it again, and after a few times don’t take his paw so fast. Say the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You must see that he is bringing his paw upward as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your response once again. After two or three sessions most Basset Fauve De Bretagnes pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Basset Fauve De Bretagne to give you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high five is a continuation of a simpler trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a snack in between your two fingers and lift your hand slightly higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Basset Fauve De Bretagne will believe you want to do the paw trick and will grab the treat with his paw as we instructed him earlier. As he rises you state “high five” and offer your Basset Fauve De Bretagne the snack. Once your Basset Fauve De Bretagne has mastered the paw trick this 1 will probably be really simple to master and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of your voice.
Teach your Basset Fauve De Bretagne to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would simply like to ask you to be a little sensible and not hold the hoop too high as you do not want your Basset Fauve De Bretagne to injure himself while doing the trick. Set your Basset Fauve De Bretagne on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to focus on your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Basset Fauve De Bretagne the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to go around or underneath the hula hoop. When this occurs start once again. Your Basset Fauve De Bretagne wants the snack and will soon learn that walking around or below doesn’t work so he’ll soon begin going through it. Whenever he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started teaching this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and gradually brought it to waist high. In the event that you possess a smaller dog you may want to start with the hoop on the floor so he simply goes through the hoop and after that slowly lift it more once he gets accustomed to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Basset Fauve De Bretagne. Have patience with your Basset Fauve De Bretagne and most importantly, have fun!
