To teach your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne tricks, even simple ones, you should always have some of his favorite snacks, take him to an obscure suitable place and try to keep the coaching sessions to 10 – 15 minutes or the Griffon Bleu De Gascogne will start to get tired. Keep in mind when he gets something correct offer him great deals of praise and a reward treat, just beware not to get him extra excited or he may well lose focus.
Teach your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne to give you his paw
To get your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne to give you his paw, first get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and give him a snack. Next do it again, and after a couple of tries do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then take it. You ought to notice that he is bringing his paw up as you say the word. If he doesn’t then go back to stating it at the very same time. Do it a few more times then slow your response once again. After two or three sessions most Griffon Bleu De Gascognes pick this trick up quite easily.
Teach your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne to offer 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. Hold a snack in between your two fingers and raise your hand a little bit higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne will expect you want to perform the paw trick and will grab the snack with his paw as we trained him in the previous trick. While he reaches up you say “high 5” and offer your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne the treat. As soon as your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne has actually mastered the paw trick this one will likely be extremely simple to master and with only a couple of sessions he will be performing it on hand signal rather than voice control.
Teach your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this 1 I would just like to ask you to be a little sensible and not suspend the hoop too high up as you do not want your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne to harm himself while performing the trick. Set your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to pay attention to your hand on the other side of the hoop. Hold a snack in your hand and give the Griffon Bleu De Gascogne the direction to stop sitting. At first he may try to go around or beneath the hula hoop. If this takes place begin once again. Your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne wants the treat and will soon find out that walking around or below does not get it so he will soon begin going through it. As soon as he does, say “hoop” and give him the treat. He’ll soon be jumping through the hoop on the command of “hoop”. When I first began doing this trick I owned a medium sized dog, so I started with the hoop 6 inches from the floor and slowly lifted it to waist high. On the occasion that you possess a smaller sized dog you may want to start with the hoop on the ground so he just goes through the hoop and then slowly elevate it as he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed learning these 3 tricks you can teach your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne. Have patience with your Griffon Bleu De Gascogne and most importantly, have a good time!
