The first step of German shepherd training:
1. With traction belt.
2 sit down
3. Training in a disturbed environment.
Listen to commands in exercise.
In addition, the puppy in the play is a good chance for training, the ball, a piece of cloth, wooden skewers are good teaching aid, the little German shepherd of rolling ball was always interested in, and can arouse his hunting instincts.
He was interested in all the moving objects.
If the little German shepherd had had enough, we could try calling him back to relax.
If it works, try trading with a puppy: swap some snacks for his ball.
And after each order, he should be caressed and encouraged.
It won’t take long for the German shepherd to pick up all the things his master throws, and the reward is not missing.
Gradually, German shepherd dogs can respond to their own names.
As the host of laziness will miss some chance to let their dog is familiar with some specific environment, in the car, for example, rail electric car, train, on the train and the surrounding noise, phenomenon and so on.
For German shepherd training, education has several basic concepts: German shepherd dogs cannot fully understand human meaning, and can not be understood and judged as human.
Some people think that dogs can understand all the words, dogs can not understand the words, but he can understand the meaning of the master in a certain situation, understand some familiar voice of the master.
In the long term common life of human and dog, the same way of behavior, the dog understands the meaning of the owner and responds accordingly.
The layman thought the German shepherd was capable of reasoning, but in fact, the German shepherd showed only good memory.
Through constant repetition and through various sensory stimuli, the German shepherd can understand the next order to be executed.
Therefore, the command given by the master should be very different, and as much as possible in the intonation.
Compliance training is according to the German canine association (VDH) and the rules of the SV each dog obedience ability test, including: accompanying with traction belt, sit, lie down, stand, at the specified place to lie down, without a leash, put the dog chasing, come and take goods, jump, climb.
Note: from the beginning of training, you can communicate with your dog as low as you can. If you always yell at him, the German shepherd is becoming more and more numb to your orders.
And give him time to complete each action, so as not to be in the training, the action is not home.
In training, you should take your dog in your stride, not because we don’t have time.
There is also a principle, what if the dog did the right thing, then you should let him feel very comfortable, comfortable feeling, on the contrary, if they do what should not do, also should make them feel uncomfortable, such as: and other barking dog fight, bite, and so on.
You should always change the training ground, the dog can not only adapt to one place, so the German shepherd is not adaptable.
The collar and the traction belt.
These two things are more than necessary, not only are they a tool for training, but also a tool to communicate with German shepherds.
They should not be used as tools of coercion and punishment.
When he gives the puppy a collar, he tends to rebel against it. He can then use play and reward to distract him and then give him a cover.
The puppy’s collar should be wide and leathery, so he is comfortable and does not hurt his fur. The traction belt should be about one meter.
And then you can give him the first lesson, with the traction belt.
Accompanying the password is “follow”, with his left hand hold leash, make your dog has been on the left side of the body, can’t keep the German shepherd dog feel passive was pulled away, but the German shepherd in the initiative to follow.
With a traction belt.
Not only is the SV, other breeders also have dogs on the left side, the password is “FUSS,” so the dog’s shoulder leans against the master’s left knee.
At the time of training, “followed by” password, plus the name of the dog, can drag traction with correct appropriately at the same time, if the dog ran to the front, back, if is on the left, right, if he stopped in the same spot does not walk, can use the left hand clap left thigh, a dog’s name, a password “follow”, anyhow let him return to its original position, by the master’s knee, can walk slowly, fling, trot, changing the marching way.
When the mistake was corrected, the German shepherd was immediately rewarded with a hand that stroked the fur of the German shepherd dog (with appropriate force) and praised the German shepherd for being “so good”.
The next basic ability is to sit down immediately after hearing the word “sit” and remain seated until you hear another password.
The dog should remain seated, regardless of whether the owner is near or far away.
Just to start the training, should use traction belt, and can help him, make him a better understanding of the master’s meaning: after a password, left hand holding the dog’s hips pressing down on them, at the same time, the right hand with traction belt, pull up.
If the dog has sat down by password, reward and stroke the German shepherd.
Finally, the German shepherd will sit down as soon as he hears the password.
Each training to sit down as the basic position, namely the dog sitting in the left side of the master, owner and toward the same direction, each training to linked with this basic position, and make your dog can consciously maintain this pose, until the owner give another order.
When the dog hears the master’s password, “get down”, he should lie down.
The easier thing to do is, when the German shepherd is in the basic position — sitting, the owner gives the password “get down” and pulls the pull down until he lies on the ground with four legs.
It is difficult for the pup to settle down after executing the password, when the owner should give a softer “don’t move” password.
In addition, in the execution of the “get down” password, you can use your left hand to press down the dog’s shoulder, and give the password “lie down”, so that the dog can understand the meaning of the owner.
When the dog is in accordance with the password, and the front leg is sliding forward, he cannot immediately give the reward. Otherwise, he will get up excitedly and in vain.
Quiet down for a while, but when his master then stood up slowly, at the same time issued a password “, sit! Stay “again, traction belt should be hung, not pulled tight, otherwise will stimulate him to stand up.
The next step is to leave down dog slowly, traction belt remains flaccid, out of a few steps, go back and repeat several times, until can use twine leash to hand.
Finally can try out of the leash so far distance, and then walked back to his dog, at that time, he can stand up, and to reward him, give him a love to eat snacks, let him play for a while.
To come over
When the dog was released, the headache was to call him back, and when he was reattached, many people mistakenly scolded the dog, which was the biggest mistake the dog had ever made.
The dog will not feel punished for running away, but because he came back to be punished.
So the next time he runs out, he is afraid to come back, because he is waiting for his master’s punishment, which is easy for the vicious circle.
The correct training method is to use the traction belt first.
Start with the basic position — sitting, and then give the “get down” password. When the dog gets down, the owner turns to face him and pulls on the traction belt, so as not to be distracted.
When a “get down, don’t move” password, and then give gestures: arm extending towards the direction of the dog, palms facing dog, slowly back, at this time, the dog must keep lying state, otherwise correct immediately, repeat the above process.
Once the host back to when the length of the leash, and dog remained motionless, can send out “come here” password, then he will immediately run to come over, the host can reward him well.
After repeated many times, with different distance (need different length of traction belt), different environment, add some difficulty, such as the people around, there are other dogs, until he can do very well, can in the case of without a leash for this training.
The quality of the training will soon be seen through your German shepherd, depending on the master’s skill.
Goethe once said that a trained German shepherd can show his master’s wisdom.
