I. Basic actions that must be learned by a play dog
1. Sit down
This is trained in conjunction with other subjects. The trained dog is asked to sit quickly and correctly after hearing the code and to hold it for a period of time.
To train, have the dog stand on the owner’s left side, give the sit code, lift the neck with the right hand, and press the dog’s waist corner with the left hand see figure. When the dog is forced to sit by this mechanical stimulus, it should be immediately rewarded. After repeated training, the dog can develop the action of sitting. On this basis, the training is combined with hand signals. If you let it sit in front, extend the right arm straight forward, the small arm upward vertically, and the palm forward L shape; if you sit on the left, pat the left abdomen with the left hand. If the dog can do a good sit, it should be gradually trained to extend the sit time from being able to sit for 3-5 seconds to more than 5 minutes.
2. Lie down
After learning the sit maneuver, the prone maneuver should be performed. There are two methods of training: one is for the owner to be on the dog’s right side, facing the dog, holding a treat in the right hand and slowly moving it over the dog’s mouth while giving the lay down code and pulling down on the leash for stimulation. At this point, the dog can lie down under the food and mechanical stimulation, and when the dog lies down, reward the food in time. As the conditioned reflex forms, the reward and stimulus will gradually be removed. Another method is to let the dog down, the owner should squat, hold the dog’s forelimbs with both hands, stretch forward, and press the dog’s shoulder blades with the left arm, the dog will be within a certain distance, combined with hand gesture training to improve the level of action and extend the command distance, can lie down for more than 5 minutes according to the owner’s code and hand gestures.
Perform this on the basis of the standing action. To train, the owner stands across from the dog and gives the stand code first. Once the dog is standing, give the thank you code and grab the dog’s front limbs with one hand and bob them up and down. After several repetitions, give a touch and food reward. Then pull away from the dog and give the command without hand assistance. If the dog cannot do it, repeat several times until the dog can do it. At the beginning of training, add some simple hand signals, but prevent the dog from being conditioned to them. When the movement is very stable, the series of reflex activities of standing and bowing will be completed at once by sending the thank you code, without the need to send two codes
The purpose of reward dog training is to develop good dietary and hygienic habits for easy feeding and management. Secondly, let it do a few funny little actions to bring fun to the dog owner and family. The dog doesn’t understand what people say, doesn’t understand the meaning of every word, but is sensitive to human tone of voice and gestures. The training subjects are simple and easy to do. The playful dog is very affectionate and when with its parents, it will lie at ease at its feet or in a corner of the room. However, when coupled with bed rest or going outside, it will whine or bark, thus interfering with the parents’ rest or the quietness of the surroundings. Therefore, train your dog to rest quietly.
II. Training a play dog to learn to fetch
Train their conditioned reflexes
First, develop the conditioned reflexes of the head and vomiting codes. Training methods should be handled according to the dog’s neurological type and specific situation, generally using induction and coercion.
1 Induction training.
Select a quiet environment and an item that is likely to cause excitement in the dog. Hold the item in your right hand and shake it quickly in front of the dog to cause excitement, then throw it 1-2 meters away, immediately give the title code, before the dog reaches the title, then repeat the title code, if the dog marks the item, a good code and touch reward should be given, let the dog title for a moment about 30 seconds, i.e. vomit code, the owner takes over the item and a food reward should be given. Conditioned reflexes can be formed after many repetitions.
2 Mandatory legal training.
Sit the dog on the owner’s left side, give the title code, hold the item in your right hand, open the dog’s mouth with your left hand, put the item in the dog’s mouth, and then hold the dog’s jaw with your right hand. In the early stages of training, the spit code can be issued after seconds to remove the item and give a reward. After repeated training for several times, you can carry out articulation and spitting training according to the password. On this basis, further mention the items and the ability to deliver them in order to train the dog to have the ability to identify and take out the items covertly. The training of articulating and throwing items should be combined with hand signals right hand pointing to the item to be articulated. When the dog grasps the item, it can issue a code to come, and give a reward after spitting out the item. If the dog does not come, use the training leash to grasp and let the dog come.
2. Pay close attention to the dog’s behavior.
Dogs have a natural instinct to attack people and livestock. To discourage their bad habit of attacking people and livestock, they can often be taken to areas where strangers and livestock are active, and the leash can be loosened to allow them to move freely. However, pay close attention to the dog’s behavior. If the dog wants to bite or chase an object, the dog owner should immediately issue a threatening audible “non” command, accompanied by a sharp pull on the leash to stimulate. When the dog stops this behavior, the “good” reward command. After repeated training, use the training rope instead of the leash, gradually increasing the distance between the dog and the owner. When the dog can stop the bad behavior exactly according to the code or does not attack at all, the training leash can be removed.
The dog becomes excited whenever a guest visits, often sniffing the guest’s feet often making the guest feel very nervous. If you can drink the dog away and let it go, the dog seems well-mannered and the owner is well-trained. To train the dog to obey, the owner should stand in front of the dog, give the don’t move code, and push the right hand forward to refuse.
III. Playful dog training codes and hand signals
1. Come on. The goal of the training is to get the dog to return to sit quickly at the owner’s command.
Code: Come. Gesture: Reach sideways with your left hand, then lower it naturally.
The dog’s name is called, and then the command “come” is given, and the dog is lured with food or objects.
2. Standing. That is, develop the dog’s ability to stand on its owner’s command.
Code: stand or stand Stand. Gesture: Right arm extended forward from bottom to top, palm down.
First, sit the dog, gently grasp the neck with the right hand, reach the dog’s back abdomen with the left hand, and simultaneously give the stand code and lift the left hand to stand. When the dog stands up, it is immediately rewarded. Repeat the training until the dog hears the stand code and hand signal and immediately stands.
3. Forward. That is, the ability to train the dog to move in a certain direction as directed by the owner.
Code: Go Go. Gesture: The master kneels on his left leg, extends his right arm forward, and points his palm inward in the forward direction.
First, sit the dog in a quiet place, the owner walks forward about 20 meters, does the fake-out, quickly returns to the dog’s right, and uses a code and hand signal to get the dog to move forward. When the dog reaches the place where the fake is, have the dog sit and quickly go to the dog to give a reward. If trained repeatedly, the dog can only move forward with the code and hand signal.
With the right approach, the dog will be smart and obedient. Reward food in a timely manner. As conditioned reflexes gradually develop, food stimuli can be removed and the dog can lie down with a code and a hand signal. When teaching a dog, you cannot just use a simple reward, that is, make it do the action and give a material reward when it is done. Use the human will and let it be rewarded. The real reward is the love of the owner, and there is no greater joy for the dog than the love of the owner.
IV. Training smart and obedient, playful dogs
1. Training dogs to listen
Dogs do not understand what people say and do not understand the meaning of every word, but they are sensitive to human tone of voice and hand gestures. Therefore, when training a dog to obey, you must use a firm style of voice and hand movements. For example, if you have a dog at home that barks when it hears activity at the door, this is not only impolite behavior, but also disrupts the rest of the family. At this point, you should immediately hold the dog’s mouth with your hand and say no with a very positive tone of voice shaking your head. After a few training sessions, it will understand that barking is wrong. Some dog owners coddle their dogs and instead of correcting the situation with a firm tone of voice, they pet the dog with their hands and gently say not to be so naughty, so the dog can easily misunderstand that the owner is encouraging it. Both praise and prohibition must be done on the spot, otherwise, the time changes and you won’t get the desired effect.
2. Train your dog to urinate in a fixed spot
If you find that your dog does not urinate in its designated spot, you should reprimand it severely afterwards to let it know that you do not like it, and then take it to the designated urination spot. With patience and training, the dog can gradually develop the habit of defecating in a fixed location. In training, you should pay attention that the potty should not be moved, and leave some sand after the last defecation so that the dog can find the defecation place through the smell. In addition, when dogs go out, they have the habit of peeing on the roadside to mark, which is the nature of the dog and should be different from urinating and defecating anywhere, but in the city streets, the dog’s habit can also hinder hygiene. So dog owners must go out with a collar and use a leash to guide them. It is ideal if the dog can be trained to go to the toilet to urinate and defecate.
3. Train your dog to pose gracefully
The show and evaluation events for famous dogs are now being held in China, which places a higher demand on dog lovers. In the evaluation, besides observing whether the dog looks good or not, the standing posture is also the key to win. Therefore, it is necessary to train the dog to assume a good posture. Therefore, you can take advantage of the dog’s fear of falling by using a small table or high board in a small area above the ground. First, hold the dog on the small table, let its hind legs close to the edge of the small table, and let go of the hand, the dog is afraid of falling, his limbs are soft, and want to lie down, then we want to hold its chest or chin with one hand, the other hand gently pull the dog’s tail backward, be careful not to pull only the tail hair, so as not to cause pain. The hand holding the chest also pushes back so that the dog cannot sit. </p
When the dog finds that the hind feet will lose support and then the retreat will be empty, he will instinctively move forward, upward, with the forelegs firm and the toes tucked in, presenting a straight, standard posture on all fours, with the chest. With many repetitions of this method, the dog will learn, even when standing on a flat surface, that if we pull the tail backwards, the dog will reflect the standard beautiful posture.
Enjoy the fact that dogs live indoors most of the time. If there is pee everywhere, it can cause a lot of trouble for the owner. Not only will it affect hygiene, but it will also make people feel bored and lose confidence in owning a dog. Therefore, training a dog to urinate in a fixed place is very important for the hygiene of a home or public place. This training is best started with puppies.
