Dog Training PROBLEMS and SOLUTIONS

Go to Index

IF THE DOG DOESN'T HOLD THE Object or Toy
ADVICE 304
If the dog tries to drop the Object or Toy say "bad" or the dog will associate this word with the experience of holding something it dislikes. Repeat the exercise.
IF THE DOG DENIES PICKING UP THE Object or Toy
ADVICE 305
If the dog gets its head away from the Object or Toy, follow the movements of its head always holding the Object or Toy in front of its snout.
DIFFICULTY TO DO IT
ADVICE 306
Some dog breed such as the Deutscher or the Boxer, have extremely short jaws so they have to hold the Object or Toys in front of their canine teeth and not behind them as the rest of the dogs.
BRINGING Object or ToyS
Once a dog has learnt to hold and pick up an Object or Toy, teach it to look for it and bring it.
ADVICE 307
If you are training a puppy, use a sound toy and let the puppy play with it. If not, use the same Object or Toy you used on the previous exercise.
1. Holding the dog by the leash to control it securely, hold the dog with one hand while you throw the Object or Toy a short distance.
2. Give the dog the order "search" while you release the leash. Trained to pick up and hold the Object or Toy, the dog should now go search for the Object or Toy.
3. Once the dog picked up the Object or Toy, give it the order "come" to call it. Get down encouraging the dog and if it is necessary, pulling softly by the leash.
4. Reward the dog for its obedience with firm palms on the back.
ADVICE 308
Put your hand under the dog's jaw in order to keep the dog from dropping the Object or Toy.
5. Give the dog the order "drop" and take the Object or Toy from its mouth. As soon as the dog drops the Object or Toy reward it with the word "good".
6. In order to remind the dog that it is under the command of your authority order it to sit. Give the Object or Toy back to the dog as a final prize.
ADVICE 309
These exercises stimulate your dog physically and mentally.
PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS
IF THE DOG DOESN'T WANT TO PICK UP THE Object or Toy
ADVICE 310
If the dog doesn't want to go get the Object or Toy, make the game more interesting by using a sound toy and running with the dog on the leash where the Object or Toy is. Gradually increase the distance from the Object or Toy.
IF THE DOG DOESN'T WANT TO PICK IT UP
ADVICE 311
If the dog runs to the Object or Toy but then looks disoriented, it hasn't learnt to hold well the Object or Toy in its mouth. Teach the dog the order "hold" once again using another toy.
IF THE DOG DOESN'T WANT TO BRING IT
ADVICE 312
If the dog picks the Object or Toy but doesn't respond to your call, go back to the previous exercise before continuing with the retrieving exercise (search and bring).
IF THE DOG DROPS THE Object or Toy
ADVICE 313
If the dog picks up the Object or Toy and begins bringing it, but finally drops it, the dog probably needs lessons about how to bring it.
ADVICE 314
Once the dog does this right, continue with the retrieving routine, beginning with short distances and gradually increasing them.
RETRIEVING WITH PUPPIES
You can turn this exercise into a game with a puppy.
ADVICE 315
Let the puppy bite the toy, don't take it off from the dog and congratulate it when it drops the Object or Toy spontaneously. Puppies usually have their toys in a safe place and you should begin throwing them from there.
