I have some experience with hunting dogs training , which basically means working with the three C’s: Love , requirements and consequences. I do not see myself as an expert , but just write my opinions based on their own experience with training in various associations and reading books on dog training. Although the latter is not as important as the practical experience .

After intensive training , I managed to make my dog ​​so obedient that I could get it to cover , though it saw a cat – and even if the dog running around without a leash . When it was 2-3 years (at the time I trained with treats ), I would alrdig have thought that it could be done. I experience every day great pleasure that I can wear it without a leash in most places.

• Love , Requirements and Impact pigeons. Dogs are better off with owners who use them for anything. It is good to make demands on the dog so it learns something and can contribute something with people and other dogs.

Dog breeds like Labrador and golden retriever loves to retrieve . Because that is what they are bred for. The word ‘ retrieve ‘ means ‘ fetch’ . Often it requires very little or no dog training to get these dogs to fetch sticks or dog toys . This does not mean that other races can not learn to pick up things .

Learn first dog to hold the dumbbell (see also . Film about German hunting terrier here , they show it quite thoroughly , spol 1 hour and 5 minutes into the film ) . It must first get when notified of it. If you have already make “no exercises “, it is a good idea to say “no ” when it throws it . When the dog must hand , will say taaak or slip. If it does well , praise it and may get the chance to play a little .

Later – that is, when it has learned to hold the dumbbell – must learn to go with it. Start with the string on . Then it is ready to try to retrieve it. Most dogs want to run after the dumbbell ( otherwise you have to create some interest in it, I used such as a rabbit skins, which could be rolled around a stick ) . If the dog refuses to come back with the dumbbell , try to put the leash on and run with out, and running back (this is not always necessary).
Books on retrieving : I can recommend Michael Sands book hunting dog training , ed. Gyldendal in 2006. He does include importance to you as a dog trainer understands that there is a difference between the races apporteringslyst . Some dogs ‘ll be persuaded with a little stronger than other . In my opinion he lays However, in some places a little too much emphasis on the treats .

Stop in whole or turn around and go the other way , every time the dog pulls too hard on the string . This kind of dog training will teach the dog that it does not pay to try to pull the owner of the place . I was once advised by my good vet and it has worked. Perhaps especially because I taught the dog that the reward of going nicely can be run free without a leash . Repeat , this (that go nicely 100 yards = free ) then the dog after a while see a connection .

I ‘ve noticed that dogs that draw a lot, often get a great deal out of it. For their owner extends his arm a little further out , increasing its tempo when it draws .

Once I asked a very experienced gundog trainer (he was 70 and had been rough-coated chicken dogs since he was 16) , how to get a dog to come, even if they have spotted a rabbit or a cat farther out . “Do not try to call them, he said .” The point I had to think about . Should we just give up ? He explained to me that dogs with very strong hunting instinct , must learn to cover on command. You have to train it until it is 100% dæklydig . Then you can gradually also consider convening it, after it has been thrown out . This advice has given me and the dog more freedom and joy on our trips . Now you can cover if something happens . Indkaldet is actually not so important anymore – just the stop on command. But dækøvelsen can all look forward to the perfect the caII .

Dækkommandoen gives the dog the opportunity to constantly watch and follow with your eyes what it is so interested in. It is not to turn around and go the other way (this is the one of the most unnatural for a hunting dog).

Training with dækøvelsen can for example be done by making it calmly but firmly pulls down the collar after you have said tire . Later, you can try the slightly larger distances , possibly . with the cord on . There is a difference between dogs and in some cases you have to be a little more specific than others. Teacher on it, it will give it a better life. As you can set it free in many places.

If you later will call the dog , you can do it by getting it to lie down, wait a bit , and then call the man. The idea is to get the dog to associate indkaldet with something positive. Therefore: Praise the dog all you can when it comes at the caII .

Some dog owners yell at the dog in an aggressive tone , and when it finally arrives, gets the scolding because it did not come immediately. And then of course the string again. How to teach your dog NOT to come when you call ! For how can a dog know what it is, the get yelled at for when it finally returns ?

The problem is of course also in the fact that many often refer to the dog as soon as they see other dogs or people nearby. What, then , our dogs really learn ? They learn that indkaldet means something like ” Bully ! There is another dog nearby. See if you can find it. ” This is often quite obvious : Notice that dogs often look around when their owner calls them. They have learned (from they were puppies ) to indkaldet means ” dog around .”

It is also problematic that many often run towards the dog when they will call him to them . Again teaches the dog the wrong : that the caII about the owner needs to run to the dog and not vice versa. Therefore : Running rather away from the dog when you call . Many dogs will actually end up feeling a discomfort getting too far away from the owner. And now teaches bully suddenly something else: Indkaldet means ” This is it , if you want him.” Before the dog thought that the caII meant ” now running my own to me – and there are certainly dogs around – and if I get too close to my own now , so I get yelled at .” The dog’s lack of desire to get at the caII due to faulty or wrong dog training.

Does this not for you and your dog ? So it’s a good idea to get a trainer or someone else to make the dog aware that it must run to dogs driver when this call . For example, the coach go all the way to the dog, pointing toward the dog driver and say ” you can come home ! ” in a particular way . Briefly : Go dog training with other people – and dogs!
Why are some dogs hard to manage ?

Often because they do not get enough to do. You need to have activities during the day. There may also be other reasons. Some dogs come to believe that the leader of the pack ( family). According to some researchers in animal behavior , this is because the owner has failed to show the dog through dog training, who is the leader . The owner needs to confidently take the lead and otherwise familiarize themselves with the breed of dog that best suits the family.
Exercises to dog training

(remember that training should be fun for the dog as well as the owner !)

Before you begin the exercises , it is necessary that you can get the dog’s attention when you want it. Otherwise, dog training hopeless.

Attention will only work if you always require that the dog does what we say it should. Too many are asking the dog for anything and lets the subsequent doing something completely different. It teaches in other words , that it does not need to listen .

Try later if you can get the dog to keep the attention , even when you go with it. For competitions in dog training discipline lyddighed is this attention is a vital component .

Exercise 1: Find !

Save a treat ( here used the treat not as ” inducement ” ) a few feet from the dog. Let it sniff your hand while you say “find ” . The dog will eventually learn that it must search for something when you say “find ” . Later, the dog can find treats that are stored far away. You will be amazed at your dog’s ability to find things.

Some may get their dogs to find keys, lost wallets , and even credit cards.
Exercise 2: Become !

If the dog has already learned to sit ? So try this exercise :

Say ‘sit’ to the dog and walk slowly three steps away. See if you can get the dog to be . Later, you can try with ‘tire’ . This exercise is typically conducted for professional dog training.
Exercise 3: Find object

When airing your dog outdoors , you can simultaneously make different kinds of dog training. Example, you can store anything that you ‘ve had in your hand (like a toy ) . Go 5-6 steps away from the toy. Call the dog to you , point towards the toy and say ‘find object ‘ . This kind of dog training works with the dog’s special abilities to sniff out objects. Praise the dog when it finds the object.
Exercise 4

Place the 8 buckets ( upside down ) in a circle around . 5 meters in diameter. Put a treat on each bucket and go into the center of the circle with the dog . Now we need to get the dog to go out into one bucket and take a treat and then come back to you. In the beginning, the dog will have a hard time not to run to the other goodies . But later it will understand that by returning to its owner gets it subsequently allowed to go out for a new treat.

Exercise 6 : Adventurers ( bark )

How do you get a dog to bark on command ? There are several options . It is important to find out what works for your dog . A typical way is to stand with a treat just over the dog’s snout , while repeating the word ” tack ” several times. If the dog suddenly do get the treat.
Exercise 7 : Round Ring

Once the dog has learned to tack on command, you can also learn the rounds . It is to get the dog to run to another person, and must be put in front of him and begin to bark. Here, you have to train with others. Have a second person ( figurant ) to hide behind a bush or the like, while holding the dog. The dog gets the command ” rounds ” , then release it. Most dogs have a natural tendency to run to the person who has been hiding . When the dog comes, actor holding a treat and give the command ” necks ” .
