Better Handling Tips fred
Training has been taught by many
different schools of thought. Teaching your dog new tricks and
handling obedience training takes both dedication and patience.
It also takes a sense of skill and personal awareness of not only your
dog's actions, but your own body language and training practices as
well. Below are two tips that any dog trainer can utilize when
handling their pets:
1. Signals should be given to your dogs with one hand and arm only. In
the earliest stages you may exaggerate the signals to gain the dog's
attention, but in the final analysis all signals must be given smoothly
and swiftly without any excess body motion. The size of your dog is not
a factor here, for you can train any dog to pay attention, and if he is
paying attention to you he will see your signals.
The people who would disagree with this theory are those who have yet
to learn how to make their dogs pay attention to them. You will have to
watch yourself very carefully to avoid giving unintentional body
signals to your dog. It is natural for a beginner to nod his head, lean
forward, or move his hands when he calls his dog. He is so intent in
watching his dog that he is unaware of his own actions. Have someone
watch you so he can tell you when he notices you doing this.
2. Be consistent - never scold a dog for a misdemeanor one day and
praise him the next for the same act. You cannot expect your dog to
understand an exercise if you keep changing your training methods each
time you try it. Dogs learn the basic work by repetition, and the
entire training program should proceed smoothly and consistently. For
instance, the techniques that you will use in puppy training will be
repeated in advanced exercises when your dog gets older, and your
handling will be just the same.
You should study your dog so you can
foresee his reaction to any situation. You should become attuned to
your dog's sensitivities. If you have a gentle, quiet dog, do not
antagonize him by rough treatment. He will become very alert and
responsive if you train him in a calm and gentle manner with
consideration for his feelings. Aggressive or overly playful dogs need
a more forceful approach.
Dog Tricks: How To Train Your Dog For The High Jump
your dog present in front of you,
erect both jumps, configuring them at low height and setting them ten
feet apart. Do it again. Then walk your dog to a point between the
obstacles and a dozen feet behind them. Aim the animal toward the High
Jump, and command, "Stay." Walk to an equidistant spot, relative to the
obstacles and the dog. Emphatically point and step toward the High Jump
and command, "Hup."
As your dog sails over the correct jump, praise, "Good Pup," and take
him back to the starting point. Command, "Stay," return to the location
opposite the animal's, and repeat the exercise. Do the routine twice
more, then end the session. On the next day, repeat the preceding
exercise once. Then "Stay" your companion, having first aligned him
toward the other obstacle, the Bar Jump. Return to your command
location, and - adding pronounced body language - command him over this
second jump. If he does as well with it as he did with the first hurdle
- and he probably will - great!
Now the work is gradually raising the jumps' heights, repositioning
them until they're eighteen to twenty feet apart, phasing out aligning
pooch toward either jump, and starting him from at least twenty feet.
During the teaching sequence, should your pet take any action other
than the correct one, don't chastise him. Perform some work at which he
excels (to finish high), and call it a day. Initiate a more structured
Jumping - Structured Method
leaving your dog on a
“Sit-Stay”, fifteen feet from and facing a Standard High Jump. Walk to
the hurdle's opposite side and command, "Hup." Skip the finish. Repeat
the exercise, but this time move leftward a few feet as your pet leaves
the ground; turning to face him as he lands. Run through this routine
three more times, then close the session.
Start the next period by leaving your dog on a Sit-Stay, fifteen feet
from and facing a standard High Jump. Walk to the obstacle's other
side, and after standing there for a few seconds, move a few feet to
your left. Adding an exaggerated hand signal, verbally command your dog
over the jump. (Should he attempt to run to you, block him and repeat
the "Hup" command while gesturing toward the obstacle. If need be, lift
him over the hurdle.) Repeat this new procedure three times before
ending the period.
Over the next few sessions, gradually position yourself farther left
until you're twenty feet removed from the centerline between the two
jumps. Though less distance is required in competition, the extra-mile
principle operates here by saying to your dog that he's to clear the
indicated obstacle regardless how far you are from it.
next stage is steadily moving your
pet's starting point to your left (his right). "Sit-Stay" your friend
three feet left of the two jumps' centerline, and walk to a point
opposite his new starting position. Adding excessive body language
(stepping and pointing toward the desired jump), command, "Hup."

How To Train Your Dog
“Retrieve” must be learned step by step. First, you should teach your
dog to take a very light dumbbell and hold it. Even though a handler
has never tried this with his dog he should be able to accomplish it in
one lesson. If you are training a dog who refused to retrieve when some
other method was used, and he has become stubborn or frightened, it
might take two or three lessons. The length of time it takes will
depend upon your skill in using your voice as you tighten his collar.
a dog to retrieve is one of persuasion, and your voice is your most
important asset here. You must use your dog's name repeatedly before
each command and do so in a most persuasive tone of voice. Your voice
should be kept low, firm, and pleasant, and you should talk to the dog
continually as you urge him to take the dumbbell. When your dog takes
it, you should immediately sound very pleased and praise him happily
and excitedly as you pet him.
raise your voice in anger or impatience; if the dog appears to be
stubborn, never shove the dumbbell in your dog's mouth or against his
gums, never jerk your dog's collar, and don't hit him over the head
with the dumbbell. Be gentle but firm with him at all times.
your dog in a quiet corner and keep him on a leash for the first three
steps. Place the dumbbell under, in front of, and close to, your
dog's upper lip, and as you tell him to "Get it," put your third finger
behind his canine tooth. This will open his mouth slightly and you can
gently slide the dumbbell into his mouth. If you can't use your right
hand to open his mouth, use the index finger of your left hand. Quickly
tell your dog to "Hold it," as you stroke his nose on top, in one
direction away from his nose, with your right hand, and you stroke him
under the chin with your left hand. By stroking him this way you will
keep the dumbbell in his mouth. You should be praising him as you do
this. Keep the dumbbell in your dog's mouth for two or three seconds at
first so he can get the feel of it.
dogs accept the dumbbell gracefully and hold it firmly the first time.
This is especially true of puppies who will actually reach out to take
it and hold it for you. However, some dogs will put up a struggle, and
you will have to hold their jaws closed gently with both hands around
their muzzles as you command them firmly, but quietly, to "Hold it."
Generally speaking, the majority of dogs will hold the dumbbell if you
are gentle with them and talk to them reassuringly. Be careful not to
bang the dog's teeth with the dumbbell.
placing the dumbbell in your dog's mouth two or three times to get his
reaction to it, teach him to take it by himself. Slide your dogs medium
link chain or heavy nylon choke collar up high on his neck, behind his
ears and high under his chin, and hold it in your left hand. Your right
hand will be holding the dumbbell. By pushing against the dead ring
with your thumb you will be able to draw the collar into the palm of
your hand very steadily and smoothly. Do not jerk the collar, just
tighten it smoothly and quickly. When the dog takes the dumbbell you
should let go of his collar immediately and praise him.
