Dog Guard Training Guide


Guard training is a more specialized type of training for dogs that requires an assistant trainer to work with the training. A dog guard is an important part of your home security system. A dog guard helps deter burglars and theft by acting as a deterrent and warning sign to would-be intruders.Setting up a dog guard can be daunting, but with the help of this guide, it will be a breeze!

1. Bite

Find a fixed object to tether the dog, make it sit, and ask the assistant handler to come over with a stick in his hand, while the owner is nearby to remind the dog to "pay attention". When the dog barks to scare the handler or to attack, the handler should look defeated and the owner should cheer the dog on and encourage it to pounce on the handler, then say "good" to praise the dog.

Some dogs may show fear and retreat to the provocation of the handler, but because he is chained up, they cannot escape from reality, so he is likely to jump up in desperation to resist, then the handler should immediately act scared and run away, and the owner immediately give the dog a warm encouragement and reward. Repeat several times until the dog becomes fierce.

For a particularly violent dog, the training should be given a chain to control it, and when the helper retreats, promptly order it to "stop" the attack.

The next step is to ask the assistant trainer to wear sleeves, from far and near, while walking to lure the dog to bite, the owner is next to the timely issue of the "bite" command, and pretends to hit the assistant trainer to cheer. When the dog bites the arm of the assistant trainer, the assistant trainer should pretend to fight with the dog, so that it bites more and more fierce, but not too long, see the good. If the dog does not let go, the master will repeat the "let go" command in a threatening tone, while pulling the traction belt, cutting the dog's nose, and pinching its thighs to force it to Release the mouth.

Then, the dog is also trained to chase after the assistant trainer to bite, the owner follows behind the timely command "bite" and "release". Training to let the dog learn to tear bite force moderate, in the assumption that the enemy to escape in order to bite his arm, and in the master issued a "release" command, so that it can hear the order to stop.

2. Watchdog training

The watchdog should be calm and collected, able to chase away unwanted guests, bite his clothes and wait for the master to give the command. Dogs that take an aggressive attitude when they see people are not competent to perform the duties of a watchdog.

Watchdog training

Training, the owner can ask a dog unfamiliar with a friend pretending to be a thief, sneaking into the door, then the owner ordered the dog to "pay attention", if it has ears to listen carefully or barking alarm performance, the owner will whisper praise it. The friend continues to walk forward, and the master orders "bite", while the dog is released to bite (that person's arm is to wear a protective sleeve), the dog will bite the "thief" clothes do not release, then the master will have to order "release ", take care not to bite people, while rewarding the dog.

The second step is to train the dog to watch the house when no one is at home. The owner first hides, and assists into the yard, if the dog can take the initiative to attack, the owner will come out to reward it; if it does not care about this, the owner should promptly encourage the dog to bark alarm. In addition, the dog should be trained not to eat food thrown by outsiders, if it wants to pick and eat food on the ground, immediately issued a "no" command, and lightly hit the dog's mouth to improve its vigilance.

The most important thing is to use a fierce and understanding wolf-dog to guard the house, which should not only do a good job of watching the door but also be good at reading words and entertaining guests politely. The dog that does the night work should be chained up to sleep during the day and closed the door at night and untie the leash, so it will naturally patrol around in high spirits and keep watch over the house at night.

3. guarding objects

First, strengthen the dog's instinct to protect food. You can feed the dog, the dog tied up, first give it two bites, and then take the food away, put it in the place where it wants to eat but can not eat, and give the command "watch". Ask someone to bring another dog and pretend to come over to eat, it will instinctively protect the food and bark, then we have to praise it. Most dogs have food-guarding instincts, so this step of the training can be passed quickly.

dog guarding objects

Training the dog to guard items should be a variety of items, at first we choose larger items, such as bicycles, luggage, etc. Find a quiet place, take the dog around the target item, and command "sniff", then let it go, if it runs away, recalls it immediately and let it move around the target. If the dog runs away, recall it immediately and let it move around the target. Next, put some small things that the dog likes on the target such as rags, toys, etc., let it sniff first, and then command "watch". When the assistant trainer appears, the master reminds the dog to "pay attention", the assistant trainer suddenly rushes to the target and snatches the piece of cloth or toy above, if the dog can take the initiative to attack the assistant trainer, the master immediately praises and rewards it, while the assistant trainer immediately escapes; if the dog does not care about this, the master should give the command "on ", when the dog bites the helper or he took something, the helper should immediately drop something to surrender. At this point, the owner comes over and orders the dog to "stop" and praises or rewards it.

In a crowded public place, we also have to train the dog to know right from wrong, that is, to attack those who try to take things away from the wrongdoer, but not to bite the surrounding pedestrians. Training can be given to the dog tied to the leash, put items on the ground, the command "watch" when it wants to attack the pedestrians passing around, you pull the leash to stop, but if it to these people barking demonstration, or to praise it. With this repeated training, the dog will be able to determine a warning range around the target, as long as someone crosses the warning line or is close to the target, you will order the dog to bite, and gradually improve its observation and judgment ability.

When the dog has the above ability, you should remove the leash and train it to guard the object in a free state. Order the dog to sit, change a small object in front of it, such as the owner's wallet, and give the command "watch". Later, gradually reduce the master's command and command, until the dog can complete the task of guarding alone.
