How to train a dog team "aport"
Features of training
A successful learning outcome directly depends on the character of the dog, more precisely, on its temperament. If an adult pet is sanguine or choleric in nature, then their training is very quick and easy. But phlegmatic with melancholic, this study is more difficult, there must even be a trick.
Puppies are generally easily trained by such a team (not a hindrance to their temperament), since they have a need for scratching their teeth and just want to play. An adult individual with a peaceful nature can slow down the learning process, simply categorically does not want to carry out such an unnecessary (in his opinion) command.
By the way, this applies not only to the team aport. Phlegmatic dogs do not want to execute the command to serve, to dig something up, do somersaults, etc. But they perfectly execute the commands “come to me”, “go near”, “take”, “place”, etc.
There is no need for strict respect for the dog in the performance of the correct accuracy of the team.Unless of course she is an assistant sapper, rescuer or police officer. The method of teaching such a team is the same for everyone, although several points can be made simpler.
