I. Bodyguard-style training
1. Helping the master watch the house
Watchdogs are guard dogs in the home, primarily to alert and defend against enemies, guard objects, and protect children. Watchdogs are products of those who can calmly defend themselves against enemies, bark, and get the family’s attention. A good dog can drive an unwanted guest into a corner so he can’t move one step at a time and wait for his owner to deal with him. This skill is the most valuable.
When you first start training, you can ask an assistant you don’t know to pretend to be a guest and get right in. At this point, you command the dog to growl at him. If the helper doesn’t stop, he will bite his shirt, but never the guest. When the room is empty, teach the dog to watch and not allow anyone to enter privately.
During the training, an unknown assistant also entered the master’s room privately. The owner hid in one place. If the dog said nothing, he would punish him by saying to him: Be careful in the future! After repeated training, the dog will naturally undertake this task. If an uninvited guest barges into the master’s house, the guest comes because of things, the master can’t help but receive him, but not at ease, the master can first ask the dog to follow the guest, he doesn’t go the dog doesn’t go, he sits the dog also sits, if he touches the mold, the dog sounds and then bites his clothes.
[2. Become the master’s bodyguard]
The German Shepherd can also be trained as a bodyguard. It can smell an outsider’s hidden pistol, thus relieving the outsider of his arms and preventing his owner from being assassinated. In a critical situation, it can start first, biting the wrists or throats of assassins and robbers to get its owner out of danger.
In this training, the dog trainer first lets the dog smell a pistol and a bullet; or a short knife, then hides it on his body for the dog to see, and then has an assistant bring a pistol to see you. As soon as the assistant enters the door, the dog trainer tells the dog to be careful. When the assistant enters with the gun hidden, the dog trainer immediately pretends to be very angry, scolds the assistant loudly, searches on him, finally finds his pistol, throws it on the ground, pushes the assistant out, lets the dog smell the pistol, and says to him watch out!” .
The second time, have the assistant come into your house without any iron and let the dog sniff it. If the dog still doesn’t help, stop at the door and say he doesn’t have a pistol, then take out the pistol and show it to the dog. Then ask the assistant to sit indoors and repeat the training. The dog will be extra careful and alert when he smells the pistol and will never let anyone in without the owner’s permission. When the thug shoots at the owner, the dog will heroically pounce on the thug and rob him of his pistol.
Dog watching should be trained so that the dog understands as much of people’s language as possible. In the home, it is not only a gatekeeper, but also a polite communicator and receptionist. He is good at watching his master’s face and following his command to do all kinds of work.
As a night watch dog, he can be tied in a quiet place during the day without much noise. At night, he can be untethered and set free. The dog gets plenty of sleep during the day and is especially excited at night. By closing the door and taking him on patrol a few times a night, he will naturally develop the habit of keeping watch.
The German Shepherd is strong, confident, neurologically stable, never timid, non-irritating and docile; alert and tame. The German Shepherd must be brave, tough and aggressive, doing various jobs around the world, such as guard dog, search dog, guide dog, shepherd dog, etc. Also, it is a very popular family dog, loyal to its breeder and can build a close relationship with it. Breeders must be aware of German Shepherds, they are very active animals both mentally and physically.
In addition, if the German Shepherd is obedient to owner care training, it is necessary for pet dog owners to understand the habits and physical characteristics of the German Shepherd. Only by understanding how our German Shepherd’s personality behaves in life can we move in and out.
II. Training Techniques
II. Training techniques
[1. Caressing is essential to develop a sense of submission]
When grooming your dog, touch not only the head and back, but also sensitive areas such as the ears and fingertips, so that he gradually gets used to being caressed, so that brushing and cleaning the ears will not be difficult. In addition, if the dog is on all fours with his belly exposed, it means he has surrendered or pampered you. At this time, you should gently caress it and develop its sense of obedience to its owner. Groom its whole body frequently from a young age, so that it gradually realizes that grooming is also a kind of enjoyment. To develop its sense of obedience, the owner’s caress is essential.
2. Let him interact with people and other animals to develop his social skills
If he is only allowed to have contact with his family at home, he will be nervous once he changes to a new environment. Therefore, to develop its happy social skills, it should be exposed to people and other animals from an early age to gain lots of social experience. When exposing it to other dogs, to prevent it from feeling fearful, let it be exposed to gentle dogs first and then slowly to other dogs. Familiarize the dog with dog language during playtime. To develop its socialization skills, it must be allowed to interact with people and other animals in its life.
3. Communicate verbally while playing so that they gradually adapt to humans
Talk to him, play with him, and make him realize that people are not scary animals. Soon, it will have a strong sense of trust in its owner.
[4. Move with it and make it more docile]
It seems easy for a dog to walk on the left side. In fact, it still needs to be taught. This training is very important. Cities are very densely populated with people and vehicles. If you let them run, it is easy to get into danger and car accidents.
Training began with a short pulling strap on the left side. At this point, the pulling strap should not be left on too long to allow for arbitrary movement. after June, we began to implement rigorous training. We develop the habit of lateral follow-through from a young age. As we get into the habit, we gradually lengthen the pull strap or don’t need it at all [i.e., follow through on the left side of the untethered foot in advanced movements.
If you might encounter an advanced situation on your way to practice, you should pull it back out immediately. If you don’t leave, you can barely pull it out. A stinger collar can also help you with your training. In the third case, if you are too far from the owner, you can use the edge of a drain or wall to train him. Because of the danger of falling from the gutter, it is natural that it should only be close to the side. During training, reward and punishment should be used interactively, but it is not convenient to consider walking as fear.
5. Give him more jumping training to enhance his jumping power
This type of action is more intense and it is important to know if the breed you have can handle it before training, such as Chihuahua, Pomeranian, Pekingese, etc. The above breeds such as Boston, Miniature Pinscher and Tieria breeds are more suitable. Avoid problems such as fractures. Jump training is not difficult for dogs that are good at jumping. Although some are very large, they are not good at jumping. For example, the Saint Bernard is not suitable for this kind of training. Think of it as a training or it will lead to suffering, it is much easier to see it as a game.
First, find a low, short obstacle that the human and dog cross together and give the jump command. Because the obstacle is low, it is easy to get over. After that, command him to stand on one side of the obstacle, and the owner walks to the other side of the obstacle and gives the jump command until the dog wants to jump the obstacle. After learning this command, slowly increase the height of the obstacle, practice it a few times a day, and praise it immediately.
When the obstacles increase to a certain level, the dog may run through them instead of listening to them. At that point, they should say no sternly and take him to the same place to try again. Or train jumping with food or balls. You can also change the high jump training to long jump. Ditches and boards are excellent and good materials. Tailor your training to the material, but you can’t expect a miniature dog to out jump a wolfdog by six feet. It’s unreasonable.
German Shepherds are 100% loyal to their owners. As for docility, it’s definitely not as docile as the SoS, but the well-trained German Shepherd is loyal to its owner.
The first stage of training is obedience training, which means that the dog learns to obey the commands of its owner. This training not only makes it easy to perform daily care such as brushing, showering, trimming nails, removing foreign objects from the mouth, and feeding medication, but also allows the dog to live in harmony and happiness with its owner and family, minimizing the possibility of all kinds of accidents. Therefore, all breeders should obey their dogs.
In relationships with people, it gives not only a little affection, but pride of self-esteem, it is easy to doubt strangers, but once a friendship is established, it never changes. So mom and dad quickly turn them into their very best friends with the right training skills!
III. Notes on training
III. Training Notes
1. Training with care
1 Training begins 70 days after birth for puppies and should be done immediately for adult dogs.
2 When teaching something new, do it in a quiet, safe place that is familiar to the dog; review what has been understood in a slightly distracting place, and review what has been fully mastered in a more distracting place. In this way, the dog’s attention will gradually be focused on the owner.
3 Short daily training sessions are more effective. For example, 5-10 minutes twice a day is more effective in keeping the dog fresh than 20 minutes once a day.
4 Do not overdo it. For example, after training “sit” a few times, the dog will be able to do it well or you should occasionally give him some encouragement. This is much better than failing 10 times in a row.
5 It is difficult to focus your dog’s attention the first time you train, so be patient and never rush.
6 The best way to reward your dog is to feed him meat every time he completes a task as required, but if you can’t make him feel happy, you can’t achieve the desired training goal.
7 Repetitive training can deepen a dog’s memory. Excessive emergency training can lead to dog resistance and escape. Therefore, instead of learning in a day, dogs should be reviewed day by day.
8 Physical punishment should only be used in the case of a dog bite. Training large dogs. Depending on the personality of the dog, some require violence. In addition, when training with a collar or collar with spikes, consult a veterinarian or specialist promptly.
9 Shortcuts to obedience training are practice, persistence, patience, effort, rewards, etc. Also, exercising with your dog is a great way to do this.
[2. Training program]
Obedience training generally lasts 8 to 10 weeks and is best done daily, with a training cycle of one week, teaching the same new content each week. However, if the owner does not have enough time, or if different dogs have different personalities and intelligence, it is difficult to focus on the training and cannot successfully complete the training program, and cannot be rushed, the training time cycle can be extended, only when its movements meet the owner’s requirements, and then scheduled to move on to the next training cycle.
[3. Tone of voice in training]
It is best to have the person closest to the dog in the home train the dog. One particular person is responsible for training the dog, which reduces the confusion caused to the dog by different commands from different people. In order to get the dog used to the owner’s instructions as quickly as possible, special attention should be paid to the tone of voice used during training and not to change the tone of the command at will.
1 When commands and signals begin training, especially when teaching new content, the tone of voice used should be gentle, supplemented by appropriate movement instructions, and the code should be clear and short for the dog to remember. When the dog gets bored, correct it with the leash in time. If the leash is ineffective, scold it with a strong tone of voice, as using an encouraging tone of voice at this time is.
2 Praise If the dog does what the owner tells him to do, he needs to be praised in a pleasant tone, showing him that “your performance has earned his pleasure”. However, we can’t reprimand the dog
and trick him with words of praise. This will make the dog feel cheated and not go to the owner more often.
3 If the command is convinced that the dog has understood the owner’s command but has not acted on it, but is guessing at the owner’s attitude, he must command him in a strong tone to force him to do so. But before doing so, we should carefully consider whether the owner’s request is too high for the dog to do for the moment.
4 Harsh reprimands should be used with caution. A common mistake breeders make is that the owner instructs the dog to do some action, but then he starts scolding the dog loudly because it is not clearly expressed or the dog does not understand. The dog will be baffled by the reason for the scolding. Severe scolding is limited to certain special situations. For example, there will be a serious accident related to the life or death of the dog.
5 Give the dog a fixed name. For example, the dog’s name is “Babe”, and different families and neighbors are called “Baby” and “Babe” on different occasions, which can cause confusion to the dog. The tone of voice when calling the dog’s name to avoid coarse, scolding the dog is prohibited when attached to the dog’s name. Otherwise, the dog will ignore it the next time it is called by name. Names are limited to issuing commands and praise to leave a good impression on the dog. The next time you call its name, you will immediately run to your side.
[4. Best training period for puppies]
The ideal time for training is from about 70 days after the puppy is born. In addition, weekday training starts the day the puppy comes home and progresses gradually. At this stage, the puppy has not picked up any bad habits and is relatively weak, which is much less effort for the breeder. The dog will reach adulthood a year after birth and has much more strength. It takes a certain amount of physical strength and patience to train at this stage. In puppyhood, it takes 2-3 months to correct an adult dog.
Dogs grow fastest in the year after birth. During this time, the brain is gradually developing and perfected, and it is also a critical time for dogs to learn good and bad. Therefore, this is the best time to train your dog. But don’t think your dog is too old to be trained, I’m afraid. In fact, dogs can be trained no matter how old they are. However, it requires more physical strength and patience than puppy training. If you have not spent more time caring for or letting free your dog before and you have picked up bad habits, it will take 2x, 3x or even longer, but no matter what, you should have confidence in your dog that you can train it well after training. Dog training can be divided into two stages, one is training from the date of arrival home, such as fixed sleep, defecation, etc. Secondly, obedience training, which usually starts 70 days after birth, such as sit, stand up, etc.
We humans love German Shepherds because they are smart and loyal, but they are also very mischievous. If not trained well, it can have many bad habits and bad habits that can cause some unnecessary trouble for its owner. We think all German Shepherds can be trained well. If you want to train your German Shepherd, you must have a professional training method. The previous training methods are far from the average dog lover and not very operative, so many people find it difficult to train their dogs, and only professionals can train their dogs.
Train well, give up some, and trust that you’ll have a good, loyal and loving friend! :photography tribe
