The Bichon Frise is a real snack. When you see it, it will become very excited. Most of the time, because of the strong attraction of food to it, even the host can’t control its behavior when there is delicious food in front of it. If it’s OK at home, if it’s a guest in someone else’s house, it’s really a bit of a shame that Bichon Frises still shows this crazy and delicious behavior. Therefore, it is imperative to cultivate the eating etiquette of the Bichon Frise. Not only can it help us to control the Bichon Frise better so as not to lose face when we go out, but more importantly, it can also prevent the Bichon Frise from overturning the tableware and wasting food because of being too excited.
The so-called interests make people crazy, for the Bichon Frise, money is not attractive, and the temptation of food is enough to make it full of vitality. Although the Bichon Frise is greatly attracted to food, it has to endure a lot. If you don’t attract food, you can’t speed up the pace of learning. Therefore, you must prepare the food that the Bichon Frise is interested in during the training, otherwise, you can’t stimulate the interest of the Bichon Frise dog. The training will be successful when the Bichon Frise is able to exercise restraint and not listen to the master’s command and not take the initiative to eat.
We train from simple to difficult, first from a small sit down, and then slowly evolve backward. Put food in front of the Bichon Frise or let it smell the food to attract the Bichon Frise’s attention. Then hold the food high above the Bichon Frise’s head and ask the Bichon Frise to sit down. The Bichon Frise is usually looking back at the food, for fear that the food will suddenly disappear. Then slowly put the food one step away from the Bichon Frise. If the Bichon Frise rushes forward to eat the food, it is necessary to stop the Bichon Frise and take the food away from him to let him know that if he does not listen to the command, he will never be able to eat.
Many parents will actively train the Bichon Frise to be obedient and intelligent during mealtime. When the Bichon Frise sits down, he will not eat the food in front of him. As long as he has to wait for about 10 seconds, he can send out the “meal” command, push the food to the Bichon Frise, and immediately encourage him to eat it. Be aware that the Bichon Frise’s patience is limited. Don’t let the Bichon Frise wait too long at the beginning of training, so as not to let it lose the motivation to wait and unable to carry out the training.
1. It is said that everything is difficult at the beginning, just for fear of those who have the heart. When we first started training, the Bichon Frise dog may not sit down immediately. When we see the food, it may immediately go to grab it. When this happens, the owner can’t just let the Bichon Frises go, forgive them and think about the next correction. We must correct this behavior in a timely manner.
2. Of course, anyone is different. If he is smart, he will be stupid. So is the Bichon Frise dog. It is impossible for everyone to be a genius, so be patient enough. During the eating time, the training effect will be better. Hunger can provide greater motivation for the Bichon Frise, and it can be easier for the Bichon Frise to remember. Snacks can also be used to train the Bichon Frise to obey training, endurance, and dining etiquette. And the feeding time can be taught in the same way every day so that the Bichon Frise is not easy to forget and strengthen the impression of the Bichon Frise.
