How to teach the dog to the team "next"?


how to teach a dog to a team nearby

The text below will tell you how to teach the dog to the team "next" already in the first lesson. The owners of puppies learn how to teach the puppy to the team "next" so that he does not pull it after a few simple actions. Also, you will become aware of all the subtleties of this team.

How well the host works depends on how well the dog will perform and how long it will take to train. On training to go "close" and not to pull the leash usually takes no more than 1-2 lessons. But here to teach the animal to other moments of the team will take 4-5 lessons more.

: пёс будет идеально-послушен, когда идёт рядом на поводке. Result : the dog will be perfectly-obedient when walking next on a leash. In time, you can learn to walk without a lead.

The command next: how to teach a dog to go strictly near the left leg?

So, take a leash, a collar and a treat, then go to the training place. You may need a strict collar . If the dog strongly pulls on the leash, and you feel that you can not deal with it - buy a planer. . With parfors, training will be 10 times lighter . Be sure to read the base article, which will tell you where to start training dogs and what other necessary commands to train the beast in class. Also, it's just super important to know how to teach a dog commands to the team with the help of an irritant - without it, the training will be delayed like a chewing gum.


You can work out the team already leaving home. Although it will be somewhat inconvenient, as it will often be necessary to give commands, stop, etc. Doing this under the supervision of people is not particularly pleasant. Therefore, if it is very difficult for a pet to walk alongside, you can either get to the training place by car, or work out the team on the road. As an option, you can first work out a little team in the house or yard, but train better in another territory.

The tips below will help you figure out how to wean the dog to pull the leash for a walk, that is, help you if the dog pulls the leash. But for the best development of the team the dog needs to be engaged in working out the team more seriously.

  1. Fasten the leash to the collar and plant the dog near the left leg. To do this , the "sit" command is useful. Wait for 7-10 seconds before you start anything. That is, always pause between teams, do not chase after the number of commands executed for a minute.
  2. After a pause, give the command "next" and start moving. : не вырываться вперёд и не отставать. The dog should go strictly near the left foot : do not wriggle forward and keep up. It should go near the left foot, while its right paw should be at the level with the left foot of the owner. That is, its position should be such that it does not interfere with the owner to go and turn to either side. If the animal slightly goes wrong as needed (a little breaks out, or lags behind), then it does not matter. The main thing is that it no longer pulls the leash. As you gain experience, you will achieve the ideal performance of the team!
  3. If the dog broke forward and pulled the leash then, in motion, immediately say "next" and make a leap leash to yourself, as if demanding to level with the left foot. As soon as the dog was level with your foot and passed calmly 3-4 seconds, then immediately praise her: "Next, next, good." Still struggling ahead? . Then do not repeat the command, but make a jerk even stricter . Believe me, if the dog does not listen to you and breaks out again, then the jerk was weak. Be stricter, otherwise you will learn all the teams for at least 2 years and nothing will be achieved.

    Do not praise vigorously, just repeat the command several times and say "good." Otherwise, the dog will feel a good mood of the owner and can relax. But for the correct execution of the team should always follow the praise.

  4. When the animal lags behind, it is appropriate to first playfully slap your palm on the thigh in motion and, if it comes alive and leveled with you - then praise "next, next, good." . Henceforth work harder, more active . Pass your attitude to the pet. Also, in the form of an incentive, twitching the leash during the movement will help. Only the dog lags behind - right there, in motion, make a few fast, easy jerks leash. Did not help, or does she sit like a graven image? Solve the problem by the end of the article.

Now you know what to do if the animal breaks out or lags behind. It's time to move on to stops in traffic, turns and change of pace.

When is the command "next"?

– до начала движения и до каждой остановки. I - before the traffic starts and until each stop. That is, say "next" and then start the movement. To stop, say "next, sit" and stop. Make sure that the dog sits near the left foot, and not at a distance.

– до того, как повернуть в любую из сторон. II - before turning to either side. Want to turn to the right - say "next" and turn. Want to turn left - say "next" and then turn. You have to go back - say "next" and make a turn back.

– до смены темпа движения. III - before the change in the rate of movement. When moving at a normal pace, say "next" and slow down a bit. Want to speed up - also say "next" and increase the pace of traffic.

How to make stops while driving, turn to the sides and change the tempo?

  1. How do I stop while driving? Here you go by the command "next", and the dog is near you. After passing meters 4-5, give the command "next, sit". When the animal sits - praise and give a treat in case of proper execution of the team. If the dog has risen or has changed position on the will - do not give a delicacy, and seat it by a jerk of a leash. Over time, it will be necessary not only to plant the dog when stopped, but to lay or leave in a standing position.
  2. It is not necessary to stop only after 4-5 meters. You can do first through 4-5, and at the same class stop at 10 meters, or after 20. Always work differently to learn how to manage the dog in any situation.
  3. Turns in motion. When you know how to stop, it's time to turn in motion. Just when moving on a command, say "next" and turn to one side. A dog just has to walk near his left leg and not break out. Remember that if several steps of the dog go right next to the turn - it should be praised in his voice. A little later, learn to bend over to the pet and stroke it on the side, without stopping movement.
  4. After the turn, go from 3 to 10 (you can more, at your discretion) meters and stop, giving the command "next, sit." There is no need to go a few meters after the turn, but what if you need to turn around and then stop right there? Then just before the turn, say "next", then immediately turn to the right side and stop.
  5. After pausing, as between any team, continue the movement. The next few minutes you can move without stopping by the command "sit", performing only turns in different directions, previously giving the command "next". After working off some turns, you can only work out the stops, and turn to the sides only if necessary. , при этом работая не спеша, но правильно и чётко. Most importantly - to interfere with the team and consistency , while working slowly, but correctly and clearly.
  6. To rotate 180 degrees (backward), say "next" to the turn, turn over your right shoulder back and immediately walk as if the dog is not with you. Do not stop to wait for it, just go ahead. You can pat yourself on the thigh or make light jerks leash to "invite" to the movement near the foot.
  7. Previously, you demanded of the dog to go near, so she will understand that you just need to be level with the master's foot to the left when this command is spoken. For an animal it's very simple: to take a position to the left of the owner and move at his pace along the same team. A 180-degree turn will be much easier, when the skill of moving along is better understood. Postpone the turn for several sessions, if now you find it difficult to fulfill it.

  8. . Changing the pace of movement . After 2-3 days of training, when you figure out how to control the dog when stopping and turning, practice the change of tempo. Simply while driving the dog near the foot on command, say "next" and then speed up. Before you slow down and go slower, say "next" and slow down. Go at least slow, walking step - the dog should just go near and not be distracted by anything. Be sure to praise her, when after a change in tempo she goes near the left foot.
  9. . To begin with, you do not need to slow down dramatically . For example, you are moving at a rapid pace and you want to reduce those to a minimum. It can be done sharply, but only in time, when the dog will understand what to do when you stop. Therefore, moving quickly, say "next" and slow down the pace to the usual step (praise), and then, when you pass another 5-6 meters, say "next" again and slow down the pace to a walking step.
  10. That is, slow down or add the tempo by the same command "next", while the speed of movement add or drop not sharply, but in 2-3 steps. If the animal still strongly escapes forward - do (without additional commands) a leap leash on yourself. Remember that the dog should go near, and you need to achieve this.

How much time for the team? "Next" practice each session of self-training. Give her first 5-10 minutes for class, and then 10-15, to 20 maximum. Better stop while at the time of the movement, and do the restraint. In general, interfere with the commands in the lesson, but perform them correctly.

Problems and their solution.

When moving, the dog sat and sits like it was dug in? Perhaps she experienced a great deal of stress. . If she looks intimidated - better stop the command immediately, give a simple command like "lie down," and praise the dog generously . Encourage more than usual. Your goal is to "brake" the dog. Give a few more commands, and see how the dog performs them. If the commands are performed well, then immediately continue the command "next".

The situation with "inhibition" was repeated a few minutes later? It is necessary to look at the situation. For the first time, it's better to finish training on any positive team. That is, training in general should end on the fact that the owner has achieved the execution of the team. It does not matter what.

, и по желанию делать вид, что «затормозилась». But the dog can manipulate you , and at will pretend that it is "braked". She will try to force you to stop your studies. Therefore, if in the next lesson the situation is repeated at the very beginning, when there was no special burden, or you feel that you are doing little and the dog is still "braked", you need to act radically.

Next time, when the dog "brakes" when executing the command "next door", the first time give any command and generously praise. The dog "stalled" in a few minutes? Then, moving on the command "next" and seeing that the dog has got into place and does not move anywhere - make a strict jerk leash on yourself, continuing the movement. Did not you? Then make a spurt even stronger! . Learn to find the optimal jerk leash: not strong, but not weak .

The article was rather big. After working off the team on a leash, you can read how to teach the team "next" so that you do not use a leash. The article is in the section "training".

In the next article on the topic, let's talk about how to complicate the command "side by side", bringing the execution to shine. There are also some chips that will contribute to the best performance of the team by the dog. At this stage, you definitely have something to do, so gradually work out the development of the teams, gaining experience. By the way, below you will find an interesting video that tells how to teach the dog to the team next. Дрессирую не я :) PS I do not train myself :)
