To teach your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie tricks, even the simple ones, you should get hold of some small snacks, take him to a quiet suitable place and keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Epagneul Bleu De Picardie will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, just beware not to get him extra ecstatic or he might lose focus.
Teach your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie to give you his paw
To get your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie 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 snack. After that do this again, and after a couple of successful tries do not take his paw so fast. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You need to notice that he is raising his paw upward as you state the word. If he does not then go back to saying it at the exact same time. Do it a couple of more times then slow your response once again. After two or three sessions most Epagneul Bleu De Picardies pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie to offer you a high five
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of an earlier trick, and in this case it’s the paw trick. Hold a snack in your fingers and lift your hand just a little higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie will believe you desire to perform the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we had instructed him earlier. Once he rises you say “high 5” and offer your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie the snack. When your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie has mastered the paw trick this 1 should be extremely simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal rather than from your voice.
Teach your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie to leap through a hoop
Before you start this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high up as you don’t really want your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie to hurt himself while performing the trick. Place your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie to one side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Epagneul Bleu De Picardie the direction to stop sitting. Initially he might attempt to walk around or underneath the hula hoop. When this happens start again. Your Epagneul Bleu De Picardie wants the treat and will quickly learn that going around or under doesn’t get it done so he will quickly start going through it. Once he does, state “hoop” and give him the treat. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly lifted it to waist height. On the occasion that you own a smaller sized dog you may wish to start with the hoop touching the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then gradually lift it more once he gets used to the trick.
