To teach your Chien Francais Tricolore tricks, even easy ones, you need to have in hand some of his favorite treats, be in an obscure suitable place and manage to keep the training sessions to under fifteen minutes or your Chien Francais Tricolore will start to get bored. Always remember when he gets something correct offer him great deals of appreciation and a reward treat, just be careful not to get him too ecstatic or he might lose focus.
Teach your Chien Francais Tricolore to offer you his paw
To train your Chien Francais Tricolore to offer you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a treat. Next repeat this, and after a few practices do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and after that take it. You must observe that he is bringing his paw upward as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to saying it at the very same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response again. After just a couple of sessions most Chien Francais Tricolores pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Chien Francais Tricolore to offer you a high five
Like a great deal of tricks the high five is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case the paw trick. Hold a treat in your fingers and lift your hand somewhat higher than you’d do for the paw trick. Your Chien Francais Tricolore will believe you desire to do the paw trick and will reach for the treat with his paw as we had instructed him previously. As he reaches up you say “high five” and offer your Chien Francais Tricolore the treat. As soon as your Chien Francais Tricolore has mastered the paw trick this one will most likely be really simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Chien Francais Tricolore to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not suspend the hoop too high up as you don’t want your Chien Francais Tricolore to hurt himself while doing the trick. Set your Chien Francais Tricolore to 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and offer the Chien Francais Tricolore the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he might attempt to walk around or below the hoop. When this happens begin again. Your Chien Francais Tricolore desires the treat and will soon discover that walking around or under does not work so he’ll soon start going through it. Once he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and gradually raised it to waist height. In case you own a smaller sized dog you might want to begin with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it as he gets accustomed to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Chien Francais Tricolore. Have patience with your Chien Francais Tricolore and above all, have fun!
