Basics of dog dressage

Every dog ​​should know how to behave with its owner. In order to have a harmonious relationship between them, the owner should spend some time with the dog and explain some words, what they mean and how he wants the dog to react to them. This is called dog training. The words that are used in dressage are called controls.

Every dog ​​is trainable, but it’s good to know them because they are all so different. Some are shy, some like to play, some are aggressive, and some are very lazy. All dogs can understand a few basic commands to help owners communicate with them.


Basic Dog Commands: We always use the same word for the controls. distance, sit, down, wait, stop, leg, voice, pick up, go, drop, hop, stop, forward, backward, around, over, run…

1. Commands, the dog learns slowly, one at a time. When he knows the first command, he begins with the perception of others. First, we teach the dog simple commands sit, paw, lie and wait.
2. Every dog ​​is not for all controls and all games. The dog inherits the instincts of its breed. If we expect the same behavior from a Poodle as a German Shepherd, we will be disappointed. Every breed of dog is great for some tasks, but not for others.
3. Give your puppy time to leave you poor. When they learn new commands (sit..) First, he will only obey for a split second. Then we praise him. Next time he will sit longer. When we teach the animal, we play with them between commands. During class, the dog should have more time for play than for training.
4. When the dog learns some controls, we add noises and sounds to the controls. The dog must always obey. Noises and sounds: ball, sizzling toy, running around him, throwing treats…
5. Distance between the dogs and the owners When we train the dog, sitting in front of or next to the one who is training, they must be at a distance of no more than a meter. If it is more than one meter away, it will draw attention to everything except the controls.
6. Different places. Once the dog has learned to sit on command, you should train him to sit both indoors and outdoors or downtown. 6.1. different soil substrates The dog sits on different bases on cement floor, grass, sand, dirt, seat, surfboard, table, bench…
7. We provide controls one after the other in different sequences sitting, lying down, voice, jump, distance b. foot, voice, wait, rest, voice c. distance, sit, hop, sit, wait. 7.1. Train the dog in different situations walking around town, in front of the ATM without a leash, in an elevator…
8. Train the dog to different times of the day: morning, noon, afternoon, evening, evening.
9. We practice different positions and different controls in a series from sitting to lying down, lying down to jumping…
10. We exercise the dog so that we change the position between controls – to be on a chair, to lie on the floor, to stand on a pole, to hang on a tree, to stand on slides or measures.
11. Exercise the dog in a calm voice, whisper and loudly, singing..
12. DO NOT train the animal when you are not in the mood.
13. Train the dog several times a day for a few minutes, preferably every day. When the dog is used to training, do not do it for more than 20 minutes.
14. Every session with a dog should be fun for both dog and owner. Among the controls there are always short games with the dogs.
15. We praise the dog when it obeys and ignore it when it disobeys. Do not feed the dog treats during training as they will always accept them. The dog is more obedient to love than to food.
16. We do not punish, hit or yell at the dog. We work amicably with him.
17. Do not make fun of the dog during training. This offends and humiliates him.
18. During training, we do not stroke the head This means humiliation for a working and obedient dog.
19. Patience. Sometimes the dog does not understand what we want from him. This can make us angry. Then the training stops and within minutes we try to say what we want otherwise.
20. The trainer must know and imagine what he wants from his dog. If the trainer is not clear about what he wants, the dog will not know what is expected of him.
21. The trainer uses a dog’s name in the controls Sit Tarzan, Tarzan distance,…. the dog loves his name and likes to hear it, this is the reason why he acts more obediently on command.
22. Controls order: attention, command, demonstration, praise.
