To teach your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne tricks, even the simple ones, you need to provide some small treats, be in a quiet suitable location and manage to keep the teaching sessions to ten to fifteen minutes or your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne will start to get bored. Keep in mind when he gets something right offer him lots of appreciation and a reward treat, just be cautious not to get him extra thrilled or he will lose concentration.
Teach your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne to give you his paw
To get your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne to give you his paw, initially get him to sit, then as you state the word ‘paw’ take his paw in your hand and offer him a snack. Then repeat this, and after a few times do not take his paw so quickly. State the word ‘paw’, count to 1 and then after that take it. You need to observe that he is raising his paw up as you state 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 once again. After just a couple of sessions most Griffon Fauve De Bretagnes pick this trick up rather easily.
Teach your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne to give you a high 5
Like a lot of tricks the high 5 is a continuation of a simpler trick, and in this case the paw trick. Place a snack in your fingers and lift your hand somewhat higher than you’d raise it for the paw trick. Your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne will presume you wish to perform the paw trick and will reach for the snack with his paw as we had trained him earlier. As he reaches up you state “high 5” and offer him the snack. When your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne has mastered the paw trick this one will likely be extremely simple to master and with just a couple of sessions he will be accomplishing it from your hand signal instead of vocal commands.
Teach your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne to leap through a hoop
Before you begin this one I would simply like to ask you to be a little practical and not suspend the hoop too high as you do not really want your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne to hurt himself while carrying out the trick. Place your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne on 1 side of a hula hoop, get him to take note of your hand on the other side of the hoop. Place a treat in your hand and give the Griffon Fauve De Bretagne the direction to stop sitting. Initially he may attempt to go around or beneath the hula hoop. In the event that this occurs start again. Your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne desires the treat and will soon learn that walking around or beneath doesn’t get it so he will soon start going through it. If he does, say “hoop” and offer him the treat. He’ll quickly be jumping through the hoop upon the command of “hoop”. When I started teaching this trick I had a medium sized dog, so I began with the hoop six inches from the floor and slowly lifted it to waist high. On the occasion that you own a smaller sized dog you might want to begin with the hoop on the ground so he simply goes through the hoop and then gradually elevate it as he gets used to the trick.
I really hope you have enjoyed these 3 tricks you can teach your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne. Have patience with your Griffon Fauve De Bretagne and most importantly, have a good time!
