Team training Place
During this exercise, the dog can, both stand and sit. We will give the command "Place!", Reach out to the side of the dog and slowly step back, about one or two steps.
If the dog does not move, we'll come back and caress it. If she tries to follow us, say "Fu" Place!
It is important to say "Fu" at once, as sheWill move, and not when it has already taken steps in your direction. Otherwise, the dog will not learn that it needs to stay at the same place as it is. Next, we will increase the time and distance until the dog understands that the command "Place!" Means not to move until a new command is given.
This is an extremely important exercise that you needDevote as much time as necessary and in any case not to lose patience. It is advisable to alternate exercises in which the dog stops standing, with exercises, when it freezes in a sitting position.
Driving without a lead
This exercise is similar to the exercise "driving onLeash. " The only difference is that in this case the dog is untied and can evade our control. For achievement of optimum results in this exercise it is enough, even minimal knowledge of canine psychology.
It is necessary to be able to foresee possible dog errors andCorrect them before she does them. Let's start with normal driving on a leash. After a few steps, drop the leash on the dog's back and continue walking calmly. The dog must continue the path with ordinary ease. If we notice that she hesitates, take the leash in her hand and lead her further on the leash. If the dog expresses uncertainty, it is advisable to stop, give the command "Sit!" And pet her, making it clear that everything is in order.
After a few lessons the dog learns to walk withLeash on the back or hanging down to the ground. After this, you can begin to untie it and walk on a small stretch of the road. And then, when we see that the dog accompanies us without a lead, gradually increase this segment. To make this exercise more easy and attractive, it is recommended to use a ball or your favorite dog toy. We will keep the toy in the right hand and give it to the dog, if it passes correctly several meters without a leash. Gradually, we begin to increase the distance traveled. When the dog accompanies you without a leash in a straight line, start to complicate the route. Also, as during exercises with a leash, apply turns, a 180-degree turn, a change of pace and so on.
