Today more and more supporters among the so-called motivational training. But do not forget that although training methods have changed over time, the structure and principles of functioning of a dog’s psyche is always the same.
To train a dog – all the same what to learn to talk with a man from another country. Both need to learn to understand the language of each other. We have three ways in which we can communicate, body language, voice and touch.
Body language in the animal world the most important way of communication. The dog is very closely watching the movements of the master therefore, when you give a voice command, watch what visual signals you send your dog. For example, the command “wait”, do not look her in the eye, try to freeze as much as possible that the dog has no reason to be, close to you. Conversely, when you want to call the dog, complete the command excitatory gestures, take a few extra steps back and you like pull the dog up to him more.
OKD – domestic system of dog training developed by the father of Russian service dog, Vsevolod Vasilyevich Yazykov of nearly 100 years ago. After the civil war it was decided to mass recruitment of dogs for the army, created a group of dogs, sappers and saboteurs (destruction of enemy military equipment).
