3 Tricks To Teach Your Grand Bleu De Gascogne
3 Tricks To Teach Your Grand Bleu De Gascogne

To teach your Grand Bleu De Gascogne tricks, even simple ones, you need to carry some savory treats, go to a remote suitable location and try to keep the coaching sessions to under fifteen minutes or the Grand Bleu De Gascogne will start to get tired. Just remember when he gets something correct offer him lots of appreciation and a reward snack, however be cautious not to get him excessively ecstatic or he might lose focus.

Teach your Grand Bleu De Gascogne to offer you his paw

To train your Grand Bleu De Gascogne to offer you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you say the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Next do it again, and after a few times do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to one and only then take it. You need to observe that he is raising his paw up as you state the word. If he does not then return to stating it at the exact same time. Do it a couple more times then slow your reaction once again. After just a few sessions most Grand Bleu De Gascognes pick this trick up rather easily.

Teach your Grand Bleu De Gascogne to offer you a high 5

Like a great deal of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a basic trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a treat in your fingers and raise your hand just a little higher than you would raise it for the paw trick. Your Grand Bleu De Gascogne will assume you wish to do the paw trick and will grab for the snack with his paw as we taught him earlier. While he rises you say “high five” and give your Grand Bleu De Gascogne the snack. Once your Grand Bleu De Gascogne has mastered the paw trick this 1 will most likely be very simple to learn and with just a few sessions he will be doing it on hand signal instead of your voice.

Teach your Grand Bleu De Gascogne to jump through a hoop

Before you start this one I would just like to ask you to be a little reasonable and not hold the hoop too high as you don’t really want your Grand Bleu De Gascogne to injure himself while practicing the trick. Set your Grand Bleu De Gascogne on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take notice of your hand on the opposite side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Grand Bleu De Gascogne the command to stop sitting. In the beginning he may try to walk around or beneath the hoop. If this happens begin again. Your Grand Bleu De Gascogne desires the treat and will quickly learn that walking around or below does not get it done so he will quickly begin going through it. The moment he does, say “hoop” and give him the snack. He will soon be leaping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I initially began teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop 6 inches from the ground and slowly increased it to waist high. On the occasion that you own a smaller dog you might wish to start with the hoop on the floor so he just goes through the hoop and after that gradually lift it more once he gets used to the trick.

I hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Grand Bleu De Gascogne. Have patience with your Grand Bleu De Gascogne and above all, have fun!
