Thread: Which Commands Do You Use?

  1. #11

    Default

    Spirit (smart arse) .... Heel, sit, drop, stand, fetch, stay (don't move from that position no matter what I do or say next), wait (remain in that position until my next command), take/give (for objects), shake (certain paw offer), high 5 (certain paw offer), paws up (front legs up on whatever I indicate to), bow, spin, up (beg position) come (run like buggery to me & sit square in front of me), finish (come around me to the heel position), search (beginning of the "seek back" exercise), over (jump over what's in front of you), kiss (obvious), leave it (immediately stop whatever you are doing), go play (release from current exercise), go (run to the box & sit squarely in it)

    Mish does most of these commands except for things like over & box due to her age. She does have her own trick of "goodnight" & "wake up". Very cute.

    And as for Tara. Heel, sit, drop, stand, stay is her limit. The rest is all " " to her as she gets frustrated & pissed off very, very quickly poor love so I don't push things with her.

    Sit: obvious
    Stand: obvious
    Stay: Voice and hand
    Heel: starting and stopping when working in close beside me
    Turn: used in conjunction with heel when working close by my side
    Come: used for return
    Drop: obvious
    Roll: used after drop only
    Shake: used after sit only
    Stop: used after come when i wish to stop him at a distance
    OK: when i am clear of his food bowl

    Sit
    Drop
    Stand
    (for show stacking)
    Gentle
    No teeth (when Sumo gets a bit too excited)
    Outside
    Off (to get off the furniture)
    Get the ball
    Leave it
    Quiet
    Go to your crate
    Go to bed (and they both trot to their individual crates at night)
    Wait (and they MUST stop in their track...getting there slowly...also being used to stop them from wolfing foods out of our hands)
    Look (eye contact...must be held for a minimum of 3 seconds)
    My Puss (to leave the cats alone)
    Be nice! (to stop Sumo's sometime "over-the-top" Staffy behaviour with Ruby)
    Heel
    Stay
    Eat
    (when I say it is ok...have had eye contact and I have put the food down)

    My puss! PMSL@Cleas. That's priceless.

    Commands I have used throughout my life:

    Sit
    Drop
    Stand
    Come
    Stay, no come (once I've left, may resume uaual activity)
    Stay (literally stay in that position!)
    Drop
    Roll
    Shake
    Watch
    Losgehen auf
    Auslyser

    However, in years gone past I have only ever taught verbal commands in unison with hand signals. I prefer it, personally.

    We have;
    Sit
    Back Which means they are not to enter or exit through the doorway.
    Down
    and Can it! Which means to shut up.
    A pessimist sees the glass as half empty;
    An optimist sees the glass as half full;
    A realist just finishes the damn thing and refills it.

    So far we've got:

    Sit
    Come
    Drop - lay down - currently only works when food is involved
    Down - Get off / get down
    Gentle (aimed at Charlie and his tendancy to snatch)
    Ta - Give me your ball / toy
    Show mummy (or daddy) - bring whatever you've got to me, usually done in conjunction with Ta.
    Into bed - to get into their pen at night
    Nigh nighs - settle down & go to sleep
    Leave it
    Enough - Used for stop playing so rough / shut up
    Where's daddy / mummy - find mum / dad

    That's all we've got so far. Starting up obedience this weekend, so more soon!
    Oh, and if you pick Bella up and say cuddles she puts her head over your shoulder and snuggles into you.

    Losgehen auf/angreifen = attack
    Auslyser = release

    I would presume these are used for Schutzhund training.........
