Training team Barrier
Any dog can jump from birth and does it willingly. If you have a puppy, you are sure of this.
Now you need to teach him how to do itTeam. Let's start with a barrier not more than 45 centimeters high. We'll walk with the dog on a leash, bring it to the barrier and jump over it ourselves, simultaneously giving the "Barrier!".
The dog will undoubtedly follow our example.Praise her for this and give her a treat. After a few lessons, we will gradually begin to increase the height of the obstacle. In addition, after making a jump, immediately jump over the barrier in the opposite direction, each time giving the command "Barrier!". We will repeat this several times. Then we'll give the command again, but we will not jump. Once on the other side of the barrier, the dog will be puzzled that we did not follow it and at the same moment will jump the barrier in the opposite direction to be next to us, and this is what we are trying to achieve.
For a few lessons the dog will learn that, on command"Barrier!" She herself must jump over the obstacle, and then return to us, even without a leash. Gradually we will achieve that it would jump from the position to our left, then the team would return to the ppo, stand in front of us and again, on the team, would stand up. In no case should you coerce, scold or punish a dog if she does not want to take the barrier or make it embarrassing. For her, this exercise should be an entertaining game.
In case of an error, just do not praise orEncourage her. At the same time, do not skimp on the promotion and even excessive if the dog will do everything as needed. Exercise to overcome the obstacle looks just like a jump through the low barrier. In the first lesson, the obstacle is placed low enough and we pass through it with the dog, keeping it on a leash. Gradually increasing the angle of inclination, we require the dog to overcome obstacles, and we ourselves go around it from the side.
Then we start to release the dog one. When a dog learns to take a barrier and overcome an obstacle, we combine these two exercises with an apportion, which the dog, naturally, should already own. We will place the dog on our left, we will transfer the object of transport through the barrier, and then we will give the following commands in order: "Apport!", "Barrier!", "To me!", "Give!", "To the foot!". If we do not spare time and spare ourselves with patience, we will achieve ideal results, both in high jump, and in overcoming obstacles.
You can not get too involved with these exercises,Which effectively look and encourage the owner to demonstrate the abilities of his dog to his friends, despite the fact that she is tired. You can not abuse the fact that the performance of these exercises brings the dog pleasure. If the dog gets tired, it will start making mistakes that can turn into a system.
