    Was your father part of the dog squad?
    Yes, lived and breathed with them. GSD's that is. When he left the force he took his last dog with him. That dog was later PTS under legal instruction. He should never have taken the dog from all it had ever known. He never got over it - the day he walked back in from vet's and laid that dog in the ground something broke inside him. He is a very old man now, and has NEVER to my knowledge owned a dog again since that day.

    That part is, I guess. I hate my father, he is one evil son of a bitch, so maybe it was karma?

    People still use German commands here to train...not necessarily for Schutzhund, but it was definitely more used due to those training methods. The good thing about using another language is that nobody except those who know German etc can give your dog a command.

    Achtung [ahh-tuunk] - Look out! Watch! On guard!

    Aus [aous] - Out! Let go!
    Bleibsitzen [blieb-zit-zen] - Stay! Keep sitting!
    Bring [brink] - Fetch!
    Daun [down] - Down! Drop! (when dog off leash is to be halted at a distance from trainer)
    Fass [faas]Attack! - Take it!
    Fuss [fuus] - Heel!
    Gib laut [gib-laout] - Speak!
    Hier [here] - Come!
    Gut [guut] - Good!
    Gradaus [graud-ous] - Straight ahead! Forward!!
    Hoch [houhh] - Up! Over! (command for jumping)
    Hopp [hup] - Away! Over! (command for jumping)

    Exactly. All these nongs who teach a dog to 'attack' or 'sick em' and all that rubbish. Anyone could say that at any time. But most crims don't speak German.

    There are also many connotations in the german language which enabled a trainer to change the word slightly for each indivual dog and partner.

    Who knows, but the concept made sense.
