To teach your Beauceron tricks, even the easy ones, you should have some savory treats, teach him in a quiet suitable place and manage to keep the training sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or the Beauceron will start to get tired. Take note that when he gets something correct give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, just beware not to get him excessively thrilled or he may likely lose concentration.
Teach your Beauceron to offer you his paw
To get your Beauceron to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. Next do this again, and after a few times don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You should notice that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he doesn’t then return to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your reaction again. After two or three sessions most Beaucerons pick this trick up rather quickly.
Teach your Beauceron to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your two fingers and lift your hand somewhat higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Beauceron will assume you desire to perform the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him in the previous trick. Once he rises you state “high five” and offer him the treat. When your Beauceron has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be really easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Beauceron to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high up as you do not want your Beauceron to injure himself while practicing the trick. Place your Beauceron to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and offer the Beauceron the direction to stop sitting. At first he might try to go around or under the hoop. When this happens start again. Your Beauceron wants the snack and will soon discover that walking around or underneath does not get it done so he’ll soon start going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I began doing this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist height. If you possess a smaller sized dog you might wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it as he gets used to the trick.
I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Beauceron. Have patience with your Beauceron and most of all, have fun!
