1. Tips for using a p-chain when training a Doberman

When friends are out walking or training their dogs, they need to use a collar Dog leash, or control chain Dog leash, also available as a shoulder strap Dog leash, we like the stainless steel snake chain P-chain The cowhide leash is beautiful and metallic, matching the temperament of the Doberman.

When first given a collar or P-leash, Dobermans can be uncomfortable, dragging hard, feeling uneasy or afraid to move, or even scared. Owners can squat down to loosen the leash, gently call the dog’s name, pet them, and encourage them. Play with them for a while and familiarity will eliminate fear. The way to hold the chain is to wrap the front end of the chain rope around the right wrist, hold it gently with the left hand, organize the excess and hold it in the right hand. The length of the chain grip in the left hand depends on the person and the dog. The chain rope can swing naturally as it enters, pulling it right up to the dog’s side.

First, the leash should be in a state where it drops slightly from the dog’s collar to maintain some degree of relaxation. Some friends pull the leash so often to keep the dog in the correct position that there is little relaxation. The dog’s neck exerts constant pressure trying to correct the dog’s misbehavior, there is no point in pulling on the leash, they don’t feel much pain or feel weak when the pull makes sense to them.

If you want to strongly correct the Doberman’s misbehavior, you need to pull back on the leash and strangle the dog. There is a certainty here that the leash must be inelastic to transfer the force to the dog’s neck and create a strong sensation. It is very important to grasp the strength and timing of this moment, suddenly exert pressure on the dog’s neck and then relax the rope. Adult Dobermans are strong dogs, and for dogs that are difficult to train, a collar with spikes can be used. They are stronger and more painful than regular collars and are best avoided.

P When chains and collars are used with or on leashes, the collar should be checked periodically as the Doberman puppy grows and the knuckle buckle should be enlarged for proper tightness. The standard is to put two fingers into the circle. This P-chain adjustment works well and adjusts the tightness most easily. Pull the leash lightly so that the dog feels a little uncomfortable. When the dog struggles desperately, you can relax the leash first and wait for it to quiet down before training. But P chain is best to buy stainless steel, the coating is easy to wear, rusty and unsightly. It is highly recommended that Doberman pinschers are not tied for long periods of time. Doberman is naturally active and needs the amount of activity. He must be given enough room to move around.


II. Non-training of Doberman Pinscher ①

II. Dobermans are non-trained

Many friends will encounter times when their Doberman pinscher does not listen, and this time must not get angry, let alone scold them. Dobermans are smart and can sense changes in their owners’ emotions, so be patient and educate. American Doberman Pinschers are somewhat lively. German Doberman Pinschers can be quiet, but not absolutely. It depends on the individual differences of the dog. The main conditioned and unconditioned stimuli for Doberman Pinscher training, and fasting are the same code:no.

① Doberman pinschers are prohibited from picking ground foods.

The trainer chooses a quiet environment, places the food in several obvious places in advance, and then the dog goes for a walk, gradually approaching the food and stopping when the dog wants to eat, immediately with a non-codeword in a threatening tone, accompanied by the stimulus of pulling on the leash. When the dog stops picking up the food, it should be rewarded with a petting. Then continue to wander with the dog, then approach another place where the food is placed and train using the same method as above. Future training should change locations frequently.

After this repeated training, the dog is afraid to pick up the food. On this basis, some prizeable food scattered in a relatively hidden place such as short grass with a training leash to master the trainer can be away from the dog, still trained in the above way until the training leash is removed so that the dog can immediately stop picking up food according to the code in free play. However, in order to completely correct the dog’s bad behavior of picking up food anywhere, it is not good to rely solely on arranging food training. We must reinforce strict management in our daily life and conduct regular training at all times. Once we relax, we will give up all previous achievements. To prevent the code condition from weakening or fading, it should be reinforced frequently in combination with mechanical stimulation.

② Train the Doberman to refuse food given to him.

Training method:The trainer takes the dog to an area where there is human activity and the trainer naturally approaches the dog and gives the dog a treat. If the dog shows an appetite, the trainer subtly flips his hand and taps the dog’s mouth. The dog is then given the food, such as if the dog shows signs of eating, and then given a strong stimulus. At this point, the trainer gives a barking code and pretends to hit the assistant trainer to cheer the dog on to elicit an automatic defense response. When the dog barks at the assistant trainer to demonstrate, the assistant trainer should take the opportunity to escape and the trainer should reward the dog. After such training, when the dog can demonstrate to the food aide without accepting the food, take the aide and throw the food to the dog. If the dog shows picking or picking at the food, the trainer will immediately issue a non-code and pull hard on the leash for stimulation and will reward the dog if it stops picking.

When the Doberman has the foundation described above, the dog can be trained to refuse food to remove the dog from supervision. The method is:The trainer first ties the dog in a certain place with a leash, then ties a training leash around the dog’s neck, leading the other end of the leash to a place where the trainer hides it. The trainer holds the leash by hand to hide the dog’s movement. After the assistant trainer approaches the dog, first try to give it to the dog by hand and tap the dog on the mouth if the dog wants to eat. If the dog demonstrates, throw down the meat and leave. When the dog indicates to take the food, the trainer should issue a non-codeword from a hidden place while pulling hard on the training leash to stop it. If the dog does not eat, the trainer should immediately reward the dog. This training can be trained 2-3 times at the same time at the border. After repeated training, the purpose of food refusal can be achieved.

③ Doberman pinschers are prohibited from biting people, livestock, poultry, and other undesirable behaviors.

Training method: In combination with daily environmental exercise, the dog is brought to the carriage, pedestrian, poultry, and livestock activity, stretched, and allowed to move freely, and its behavioral performance is strictly monitored. If the dog bites an object, a non-codeword should be used immediately, accompanied by the mechanical stimulus of a sharp pull on the leash. When the dog stops the bad behavior, a good code should be used to reward. After a period of training, you can use the training leash long distance mastery training until the leash control can be removed and the dog stops the undesirable behavior in full accordance with the prohibition code. However, it should be strictly managed at all times to continuously consolidate the training effect and prevent accidents.

④ Prohibit others from throwing things.

Training method:The trainer’s dog was scattered around the training field. Two assistant trainers tease the dog with several objects near the trainer. First, the first assistant trainer throws the first item on the dog’s surface. If the dog showed a desire to mark the item, the trainer would immediately give a non-codeword accompanied by a sharp pull on the leash to stop. When the dog stops moving, it is rewarded. The second assistant trainer then throws an item and if the dog still wants to chase the title, it should stop again. Such repeated training can be done 3-4 times in a row at the same time. After that later, you can use the training leash to master the training until the leash control is removed and the dog is no longer chasing something thrown by someone else.

[Ark Review]

Non-codeword and jerk leash stimulation should be used when non-codeword and jerk leash good behavior is present. The stimulation is strong but must be appropriate for the dog’s neurological type and constitution to avoid adverse consequences. Poor results after using codes and stimulation. Training should be temporarily stopped to relieve the dog’s neurological activity when other subjects are affected by the prohibition of training. Frequent prohibition of bad behavior of the dog is not possible once and for all. Otherwise, there will be repetition.

III. Doberman Pinscher Pounce Training

① Desire and the formation of hatred

The Doberman bite is the most direct and effective measure to prevent and directly stop criminal behavior and external aggression. Biting is part of a dog’s instinct to protect itself and repel them, but it is only a narrowly defined bite. The bite of trained dogs is a quick command bite based on the narrow sense of instinctive bite, through purposeful and systematic training of dogs by people. How to do a good bite training for trained dogs.

1, The development of Doberman’s pouncing desire

This is the foundation work for pounce training. Using the dog’s courage, bite, physical ability and confidence sets the stage for later training. The training environment for scramble bite items can be divided into inside and outside the kennel Initial training requires keeping the environment quiet and eliminating other external distractions. In terms of training items, the dog’s traction tools should be firm and bite items should be diverse such as towels, sisal sticks, torn clothes, sticks, etc.. This stage of training should reach the object that the dog is not afraid to compete for items, actively tear and bite items, and have a strong desire to win. In the training operation, the master can hold the silk articles that the dog often takes to fully stimulate the dog’s excitement and stimulate the dog’s desire to hunt. You can also reward the dog with a “yes” command, or you can give the dog a pat with one hand while the other hand gives the dog a pat, and finally let the dog win the game with the owner. You can also lure the dog outside the kennel with a stick or other biting device. When the dog shows a strong desire to bite, one end of the sisal stick is delivered to the kennel through a gap in the kennel and the other end competes with the dog. At the same time, you can make a threatening sound or fake call to stimulate the dog, which eventually ends with the dog’s victory. Be careful to choose items that are suitable for the dog to bite as much as possible to facilitate the human competition with them. The power and duration of the competition with the dog depends on the actual ability of the dog, and control the timing and power of the competition appropriately.

2, Doberman fierceness and hatred formation

Viciousness and hate training is a very important phase of bite training and serves primarily to train the dog’s bite force. It can be divided into two forms: in-kennel and out-of-kennel.

The training environment requires geologically flat, free of other obstacles, and a dog that can easily run and fight with the assistant trainer. The dog’s leash tool should be secure and the teaching assistant should be well guarded. The basic indicator of training is that the dog is not afraid to guide the helper and other stimuli to aggressively attack the training dog.

During training, place the dog’s food at the door inside the kennel, then leave and hide out of sight of the dog. After the assistant instructor confirms that the dog has begun to eat, make a sound to attract the dog’s attention and approach the kennel with mysterious movements, pretending to compete with the dog for the food. When the dog barks and grabs the kennel, tap the kennel with a pre-prepared guide stick branch and broom and make a sound that scares the dog to stimulate it, and finally help the trainer escape from the kennel. The assistant trainer can also get the dog’s attention by shouting or knocking at the door. The trainer brings the dog to the door and places the attention code. At this point, the assistant trainer can embed in the doorway and use a pre-prepared tool to hit the ground or the dog’s body to stimulate the dog. When the dog has strong aggressive behavior, the trainer leads the dog to retreat, the trainer enters the room to lead, the trainer encourages the dog to pet, and finally the trainer escapes the room.

[Ark Review]

The best way to train intensely outdoors is to use a group tuning lead. Before training, the dogs are grouped with each other according to their fierce size, and the number of people in each group is 5~8. Before the training starts, the dog trainer takes the dogs in a semi-arc arrangement about 3 meters apart easily, checks the traction appliances, stands up step by step with a ding, and waits for the helper to transfer the lead. At this point, the assistant trainer suddenly appeared in the dog’s field of vision, shouting, to get the dog’s attention, waving guide appliances jump close to the dog, to reach the dog, first guide appliances hit the ground and intimidate the guide dog, and then according to the dog’s personal situation, appropriate stimulation, training dog to encourage the dog, and finally help the trainer to escape from the training ground to end the training.

②Pouncing in traction

1 Pouncing training in the Doberman short leash state

Bite training in the short leash state is the first phase of the open sleeve bite. Through this phase of training, the dog can clearly bite parts of the open guard sleeve, develop the habit of not letting go of the mouth after biting, and increase the dog’s excitement to bite. According to the different ways of assistant teaching to give the sleeve, it can be divided into two forms of bite: front to give the sleeve and backward to give the sleeve. The traction tool requires firmness and complete protective equipment for the teaching assistant. The size of the sheath used for biting should be appropriate.

Training should be done to achieve a dog that actively pounces on the assistant trainer, is not afraid to whip the assistant trainer, and does not slow down the mouth. In the training operation, a suitable outdoor area can be chosen and the dog trainer prepares before the pounce and then signals the assistant trainer. The assistant trainer wears protective equipment and fully adjusts the dog. When the dog has a strong desire to attack, the assistant trainer raises the protective sleeve from the dog’s half-meter position and stands still. Train the dog to step up and bite. After the dog bites the guard sleeve, the assistant instructor swings the guard sleeve from side to side to compete with the dog. At this point, the training dog stroked and reinforced the dog while pulling the leash tighter, and finally the training dog forced the dog to release the guard sleeve and the assistant coach adjusted the dog again.

In the welcome front sleeve training, the assistant trainer approaches the dog after fully adjusting the dog at a distance of approximately 10 meters, outside of the arc running course. Upon reaching the dog, they smoothly present the sleeve to the dog. At this point, the dog trainer should promptly relax the traction on the dog to facilitate the dog to jump up and bite the assistant trainer. After the dog bites the sleeve, the assistant trainer swings the sleeve from side to side to compete with the dog. Finally, the dog trainer forces the dog to release the sleeves and the assistant teacher adjusts the dog again.

In backward sleeve training, the assistant trainer runs in the direction away from the dog after fully adjusting the lead dog at a distance of about 2 to 3 meters. At this point, the dog handler leads the dog to follow quickly. When the dog approaches the target, the trainer slows down the running speed and raises the sleeve to bite the dog. After the dog bites the sleeve, the trainer swings the sleeve from side to side to compete with the dog, while hitting the sleeve or body with a whip to stimulate the dog to bite. Finally, the training is over, the trainer forces the dog to let go of the sleeve and the trainer guides the dog again. Pay attention to the coordination between the assistant trainer and the dog trainer, and you can use words or hand signals to communicate as necessary. The assistant trainer should not be overly stimulated by the addition of the dog, otherwise the dog will easily slow down its mouth.

2 Pouncing training in the Doberman long leash state

Pounce training in the long leash state is the training of the dog’s ability to pounce on the helper under a range of controlled conditions during the run. There are three forms of lunge bite: stationary sleeve giving, strut running sleeve giving, and arc running sleeve giving. The training environment requires a fixed dog tying device, a relatively quiet environment, flat geology and no obstacles. The training program requires a long traction tool that is firm, a full complement of protective equipment for the assistant instructor, and sleeves of a size suitable for the dog to bite. Training to achieve the dog to take the initiative to pounce on the assistant trainer, accurate pounce on the active target, not slow mouth. In the training operation, there is a long traction state of the pursuit of the pounce.

The dog trainer and assistant instructor should first delineate a straight line bite range based on the length of the long leash, then the dog trainer takes the dog into the bite site and ties the long leash with the designated range to the designated spot, tugging on the end of the long leash near the dog’s body. The assistant trainer puts on the pouncing apparatus and runs close to the dog from outside the pouncing range, pretending to attack the dog and luring the dog. The dog is trained to give the attention code. At this point the assistant trainer runs backwards according to the pre-designated route and the training dog holds the appropriate time to release the dog while issuing. The attack code makes the dog chase and lunge. The point of the lunge is preferably at the outermost end of the lunge range. Be careful that the assistant trainer does not run out of the pounce range. When the dog bites the sleeve, the assistant trainer pulls the dog back, tenses the long leash, and then swings the sleeve from side to side to compete with the dog. The dog trainer keeps up in time to encourage the dog, and finally the trainer forces the dog to release the sleeve and the trainer adjusts the dog again.

[Ark Review]

This phase of preparation is very important, especially the range of the bite must be accurately and visibly delineated. During the chase bite, the trainer must not go beyond the designated range, otherwise the pulling stimulus from the long leash can have a very serious effect on the dog’s later bite training.
