The dog training command “Fu”, “SIC”, “Barrier”
In order for the dog to pick up and bring the item to the owner, work out the command “Aport”, which means-take, grab, give. This is a very important team for service dogs, necessary in the future when recognizing things, searching the area, working on the trail-however, this is already a search service.
The training technique is based on an innate reaction to grab a moving object. Start the lesson with a toy, a ball. Wave aportirovochnye the subject in front of a sitting dog, accompanying their actions with the command “Aport”. If it tries to grab an item, give it a chance. Let it hold the object in its mouth for a while, then repeat: “Aport, good.” Complicate the reception-wave the aportirovochnym subject and when the dog shows interest in it, throw it close, then the command “Aport” and a gesture of the right hand in the direction of the object send to bring the thing.
If the dog raises the Aport, but does not bring it up, you can call it with the command “To me” or pretend that you are running away, and the dog with the object will run to you. The first time work with it on a long leash. If she brings an Aport, but does not give it away at the command “Give” – offer a treat at the same time with the same command. At this time, exchange a treat for an item.
As you learn the technique, send the dog for the item not immediately, but after some exposure (at first, throwing the item, you can give the command to “Sit” with increased intonation and hold the leash). Reception is considered fulfilled when the dog, being at the left foot of the owner or trainer, sits, and at the command “Aport” runs after the thrown object, independently returns with it, sits down to your left and at the command “Give” gives the object.
It is very important to work out the forbidding command “Fu”. The command is absolutely mandatory, since it is this command that you can warn or stop unwanted actions of the dog. Usually this technique is practiced with the use of painful stimuli — a jerk with a leash (for large dogs to wear a strict collar), a blow with a whip (rod) on the rump. In all cases, the force of the jerk and the impact must be commensurate with the strength of the animal.
Practice taking a walk. Let the dog on a long leash, and as soon as it tries to run up with a bark to a stranger, pounce on animals, chickens, try to pick up something from the ground (specially scatter something in advance), take a treat from a stranger, give the command “Fu” and slightly jerk the leash or hit the rump with a whip, when the command is firmly assimilated, it can be released without a leash.
In transport or on a walk in a busy place, the dog must be muzzled. Put it on with your right hand, holding the collar with your left. If you try to tear it off, distract from this, in a strict tone, give the command “Fu”.
Teach them to show the bite from the puppy’s age. Give the sitting dog the command “Show your teeth”. Hold the right hand at the bottom of the dog’s face, and the left hand at the top and push its lips apart with your thumbs. When showing the bite, the teeth should be closed.
…Here is your dog and managed, it remains to teach her to overcome obstacles. During walks, do not miss the opportunity to give her the opportunity to jump over a ditch, a fallen tree, walk on a narrow bridge or Board, climb a ladder.
When jumping over a barrier, give the command “Barrier”. The first time together with the dog on a leash and jump over a low obstacle yourself. Subsequently, only run up to the barrier closely, but do not jump yourself, but make the dog do it on the “Barrier” command. As you practice, increase the height of the obstacle. For dogs that are willing to grab an Aport, you can throw an item over the barrier and order it to be taken. Vicious dogs that run around the estate freely should not be trained to “jump high”. After studying the technique, they can arrange their own walks.
To teach the dog to walk on the boom (a Board, log or fallen thick tree at a height of 1 m with a gentle entrance to it and the same descent), give the command “Forward” and, taking the dog by the collar with your right hand, with your left, supporting it under the belly, hold it on the boom or just on the bench. Repeat several times. Do not let us jump off the boom, but protect yourself from falling and first take wide boards.
Follow the rules: don’t overwork the dogs performing the same techniques; team serve clear, calm and not irritated at default, re-order more strictly, do not shout, but teams do not change; the promotion must immediately follow the performance of reception. As a reward, you can let the dog off the leash: “walk”.
