How to teach a dog the command "aport" so that it with great joy brought you an abandoned stick or other object? The command "aport" will be your favorite dog team, if the owner will be able to interest the pet with an apportion. Even those dogs that do not even have an interest in abandoned sticks will willingly carry the owner anything.

The command "aport" is not just a pampering. Teach the dog this team is very useful. For what?

  1. . Paddock . A dog needs to walk as much as possible. Most breeds are very active and love games. Getting rid of excess energy, it will be easier for you to train a dog, it will be much calmer and obedient at home, and will also develop physically. The latter is especially important for owners of serious breeds.
  2. Training to search the area. Not the right team. Without it, you can get along calmly, but for the general development you will only benefit if you train the dog of this, in general, not difficult team. Without an "apportion" you can learn to search for an animal, but with it, nevertheless, it is much easier.

How to properly teach the team "aport" a dog or a puppy.

Begin training this team even if your puppy is one month old. All training will take place during the game, and only after 5 months you need to ensure that the puppy brings you an object, sat near the left foot and held it as long as necessary.

You can teach the beast to execute the command "aport" only in a game manner. That is, the puppy or the dog will bring the thing you threw, and give it away at the "give" command. . Further complication of the command is not necessary . Obviously, obedience training will be beneficial in general, but strict execution of the "aport" team is not so important. There is no need to teach the animal to go around the owner behind his back and sit down without commands at his left foot, while holding the object as much as the owner wants. In life, you will not use it anyway.

Therefore, we will not waste time and move on to the process of teaching the team in a game manner. That is, the dog will bring anything, but you will use it only for the game. If you want to learn a complicated team in time, you will be able to do it without problems, because you will already have a base, a foundation for further education.

  1. . Kindle interest . The problem is that there is only one way to teach a dog to bring things. She should be interested in the things she should bring. Take your favorite toy, buy an inexpensive soft puller or take a stick. During a free-range outing, play the pet, do everything possible so that he grabs the thing with his mouth. If he is completely passive and not interested in you, then either you play on a terrain unfamiliar to the dog or you are a bad artist.

    Best of all know how to play with puppies children. They almost dance around him, drawing their attention with toys. When around such activity, even in the most lazy creature, playfulness will wake up.

    You can throw a stick on the floor and kick it with your feet. For sure the puppy will be interested and will run for the stick. As soon as he grabs a stick - take the other end and fight a little. You can just take a toy and "play along" with the puppy. As soon as he grabs her - start playing the same tug. Every owner knows how to play his dog. If you do not know - try, spend more time with the animal and try to play.

    . The dog must wake up with excitement, the desire to pick up a stick . Then she will give up eating rather than enjoy playing with the owner.

    When the dog will fight with you for a stick, repeat from time to time (every 10 seconds, several times): "Aport, anport, good." Praise her only at the moment when she holds the stick with all her mouth and fights for it with you. You are not mistaken, now you are just playing tug-of-war and talking to the dog from time to time: "Aport, anport, well." At this time, you can smooth out the dog on the side with your free hand - as a token of encouragement. To pick up a thing, give the "give" command . After holding the thing for a few seconds - continue the game and after 5 minutes again take the object saying "give".

    . Your goal is to develop a passion for the game . The dog should know that if the owner brings a stick (or any thing), then you can play with it great. Therefore, to begin with, play with it for a long time with games to play interest. He will bring things later.

  2. . Teaching to bring . Fasten the leash to the collar of the beast and grab for its very end. Then take your favorite toy or other thing and drop it 1-1.5 meters (do not rush to rush further). When the dog runs after him and grabs it with his mouth - say "Aport" command once (no more), pull the leash towards yourself and take 2-3 steps back. The puppy will run to meet you with the thing in your teeth - then grab the other end of the thing and start playing, repeating: "Aport, anport, well." Play as many as you like, but not less than 3-5 minutes.

    . If you threw a thing and the pet does not even want to run to it, you first need to awaken interest in the subject . The next few walks just play, repeating when playing: "Aport, anport, good." Do not play it - nothing will come out.

    Perhaps the beast runs up to the abandoned thing, but just stands beside it? Then run up and kick a little stick, "revitalize the object". Pound the thing and get the dog to take it in the mouth. When you take it, take it and play it.

    Soon, when you throw a stick, the dog jerks after it and grabs it with his mouth. Then it's time to say "aport", pull him up by the leash and, after the approach, immediately begin to actively play and praise. After 5 minutes, pick up the stick by giving the "give" command. Again, drop it and achieve an approach by pulling the leash to yourself. If you see that the dog loses interest specifically to the tray of the object - it's okay, do the "aport" team the next day.

    Thus, we offer the dog a game if it comes up to us. Soon she will understand that it is most profitable for her to bring things to the owner, because only so you can achieve a game with him. Other ways will be ineffective and the dog will happily play with you in exchange for the brought thing.

  3. . Without a leash . Now throw for short distances (1-2 meters), but without a lead. Get the animal to bring the thing. Does not work? Then you need to work on a leash. Get the tray of the object to you, and then complicate it.
  4. . We throw even further . When the dog will bring toys or else that without a lead from a short distance behind the game with the owner, it's time to throw further. Let first you work on a long leash, but increase the length of the throw. We have to play and throw a lot, so that the dog always brings things. Your goal - to throw the object at least 5 meters and get a tray, offering the dog in return the same game. After a few minutes, pick up the thing saying "Give."

Summing up. Play with the dog every time for the tray of the object. Do not pursue distances and start small: throw a thing nearby and use a leash. Then stop using the leash and gradually increase the throw distance. The main thing is not how far you throw, but how well a dog will bring you a thing on command.

Only the first time, to work out the team, you need to play each time for a tray of the subject. When the animal will be good to bring things and perform the command "give", then you can immediately after the approach not play, and pick up the subject by saying "give". Remember that if the dog does not bring things well on the team, then you need to work more on the team.
