The volume of this work does not allow discussion of all the details of training, for example, training a dog specifically for hunting, for sanitary or police services, and other purposes. Here, general instructions will be given on how to teach a dog to fulfill the elementary requirements imposed on it as to the closest human friend of the entire animal kingdom, who is in constant communication with him. For frequent, more detailed instructions, one will have to turn to essays that specifically treat these issues.
It should always be remembered that a naughty and ill-bred dog is no good; it only serves as the cause of a whole series of troubles both for its owner and for everyone around. Such badly educated dogs give their haters the right to rebel against all their kind and to justify their indignation with the whole class of their kind by the misdeeds of bad specimens. In view of this, before acquiring a dog, think seriously whether you have the patience and endurance to raise it. Education and training are closely related to one another and it would be fundamentally wrong to separate these two concepts. By raising a dog is meant in general everything that is necessary for it in communicating with people: obedience, affection, etc., while training is the memorization of known actions and techniques that only increase a person's love for a dog and make it intelligent and useful in all relationship. The basic upbringing of a dog, whatever breed it may be, should be the same. Obedience and cleanliness in the apartment are equally required from a hunting dog and a house dog. The methods and techniques used to achieve this goal can be varied, but the end result should always be the same. Everyone can himself, even without having any special knowledge and skill, teach his own foundations of education, and therefore society has the right to demand from the owner of the dog that she does not bother everyone and everyone with her bad habits.
More special training is a very difficult matter and not everyone is given the ability to instill in a dog an understanding of what is required of it, and therefore it should be started deliberately and carefully.
The basic rules of education can be summed up in the following three provisions:
1) First of all, you need to find out the character of your pupil.
2) The will of the educator must be unshakable, and its implementation is relentless.
3) It is necessary to overcome your impatience and anger and not give them power over you.
Let's supplement these theses as follows:
First point. Each dog needs its own system during training, but it would be completely wrong to treat all of them according to the same template.
One dog is very quiet, obedient and affectionate, and therefore a strict word is enough for it, while another is very stubborn and requires more severe treatment. Therefore, before you start training or upbringing, all the advantages and disadvantages of the dog's character should be clarified by you. The first will be: loyalty, pride, affection, obedience, etc., the last - envy, greed, highly developed sex drive, etc.
The main task of the teacher should be to strengthen and develop the good qualities of the dog, together with the elimination of all the shortcomings, if possible.
The dog was created in order to serve a person and obey him implicitly. With good upbringing and treatment, her affection, the desire to please the owner and to render him a service is unusually great.
If the upbringing of a dog is neglected, it shuns people, becomes evil and distrustful, the instincts of animals awaken in it and from a domestic friend it turns into a repulsive creature.
In each breed, there are completely different specimens and the greater or lesser flexibility of their upbringing and training depends on the characteristics of their character. This degree of susceptibility to good influences from a person is a feature of a given individual, and is not a distinctive feature of a particular breed. However, one cannot fail to notice that some breeds still have their own special abilities and inclinations, both good and of other properties. The elaboration and development of these features was greatly influenced by the special education in the same direction of a whole series of generations; for example, dachshunds and fox terriers are specialized for underground hunting; hounds, greyhounds, setters and pointers have their own specialties, etc.
Second point. The desire to achieve something from your student should be unshakable, and you should strive to achieve the intended goal in all ways; every indulgence will have its effect not at all in favor of the desired result. However, one should not demand from the dog the impossible in the sense of the physical, or what is incomprehensible to it in view of insufficient preliminary preparation. Strict consistency is required when training a dog.
The dog character test determines the herd and defensive attitudes of the dog. A few months ago, Martins brought home a wonderful German Shepherd puppy, the kids named him Cheyne after their previous shepherd who died last winter.Cheyna, like all Shepherds, grew rapidly and soon reached 50 pounds and was already walking on a leash
It is known that the most important is the first year of the foals' life, especially the first months. The most intensive growth and development of foals occurs at this age. At an early age, the foal's body is more plastic and malleable to changes under the influence of feeding and housing conditions than in the second and subsequent years of life
While training dogs together with their owners, sometimes you come to certain conclusions that may be interesting and useful to some people. Some advice may not seem indisputable, but the author does not at all claim to be the ultimate truth
Strong, properly developed bones, reliable and functional joints are needed for any dog, regardless of breed. However, this is especially important for large, heavy animals. Various pathologies of skeletal development in a dog can not only be a disqualifying sign, but also cause pain and suffering in an animal
Raising and raising a hunting dog puppy is a difficult and responsible, but very exciting process. Constant observation of the physical development and formation of the character of the future hunting assistant gives the educator and trainer many unforgettable minutes
