To teach your Braque Du Bourbonnais tricks, even easy ones, you need to get hold of some of his favorite snacks, take him to a secluded suitable place and hold the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Braque Du Bourbonnais will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something right give him great deals of praise and a reward snack, just be cautious not to get him over excited or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Braque Du Bourbonnais to give you his paw
To train your Braque Du Bourbonnais to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a treat. After that repeat this, and after a couple of successful tries don’t take his paw so quickly. Say the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and only then take it. You must notice that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a few sessions most Braque Du Bourbonnaiss pick this trick up quite quickly.
Teach your Braque Du Bourbonnais to give you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a progression of a more basic trick, in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and raise your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Braque Du Bourbonnais will think you wish to perform the paw trick and will grab for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him in the previous trick. While he reaches up you state “high 5” and give your Braque Du Bourbonnais the snack. As soon as your Braque Du Bourbonnais has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very easy to understand and with only a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Braque Du Bourbonnais to jump through a hoop
Before you start this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high as you don’t want your Braque Du Bourbonnais to harm himself while practicing the trick. Place your Braque Du Bourbonnais on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a snack in your hand and give the Braque Du Bourbonnais the command to stop sitting. At first he may attempt to walk around or below the hoop. In the event that this occurs begin once again. Your Braque Du Bourbonnais desires the treat and will quickly learn that walking around or below doesn’t work so he will soon begin going through it. The instant he does, state “hoop” and give him the snack. He will quickly be leaping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I started off teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly raised it to waist high. In case you possess a smaller sized dog you might want to start with the hoop touching the floor so he just goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it more as he gets used to the trick.
I expect you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Braque Du Bourbonnais. Have patience with your Braque Du Bourbonnais and above all, have fun!
