Tell us about yourself: Hi,
Short and sweet here- I'm a father of 2 boys, a carpenter, hunter, runner. We have extensive experience with sled dogs, shepherd mixes, a wolf hybrid, and our current dog a 95# long haired Shiloh Shepherd. I'm looking for a more energetic dog that had the same intelligence and trainability. I'm interested in advice, opinions, and a place to share experiences.

Out vs Give

Post by TimL_168 » Sat Jul 01, 2017 10:51 am

Anyone have any input on teaching these two separate commands? En came to me with a long list, and among them was "Give". She was relentless on the tug when I got her, and we've done great developing quick obedience on the Out and maintaining drive. But...I kinda gave up on the "Give" (placing in hand) for a while now. I want her to get back into it. It's very useful, and that's what she's all about. Here's the question- should I bring back the Give command with the open palm up, or do you think giving the Out command with the palm up is enough. My gut tells me to keep two defined commands completely separate." Out" should be immediate, no matter how far away she is. Although... I don't think "Give" should be said until the dog is within reach anyway, so out could accomplish the same end. I'm really leaning towards two separate commands. Just curious if anyone else has any pragmatic experience.

Sounds too confusing id stick to out and when you want it in your hand tell the dog out with your palm open like you would give... essentially you are trying to train two commands for the same behavior! Out is out whether it's in my hand or not... having a give and put command is too confusing for you and the dog

So Out is out-wherever she happens to be, but showing my palm up when she's facing me prompts her to out into my hand. Thanks for the input!

I agree with steve. Its 6 1/2 dozen of the other. Out is drop it like a hot potatoe no matter what and where. out can be in your hand too. Mine have been trained with no commands so if they are close and the hand touches the object in the mouth, they release.

Apport is a good one too, its fetch. So many times when I was biking with Thalie, Id drop something and didnt want to get off my bike and get it. It was a great party trick. I would tell Thalie " apport" and she would pick it up and hand it to me.

Tell us about yourself: I am an active senior/retired Professional Dog Trainer. I currently own a DS female that will be 2 in Sept. She is not my first Working dog, having owned GSD's (German/ American lines) in the past. My DS is mostly black with very little brindle (color fault). Anyway, I have also owned and titled other breeds; Springers, Brittanys, American Staffordshire, Chihuahua, etc. This DS is not like any dog that I have ever worked with before. The breeder of my DS didn't like her temperament. I hope to learn more about this breed from your forum.

My DS will "out" on the sleeve and will deliver the dumbbell to hand and let go of it to hand using the same exact word "out." She had more difficulty learning the hold (not dropping the dumbbell), but that was my fault. As a puppy she would bring a ball and drop it, while I tossed another. The ball tossing created a dropping habit that needed fixing. I just never figured on doing CDX. Since I'm a senior, it's easier under pressure to have just one command. If you and your dog can handle 2 commands, then why not?
