How to Train a Dog Agilely?


Turn on the TV, and occasionally see the dog on the TV walking lightly and vigorously over the obstacles, and then look at his lazy dog lying on the ground and sleeping, do you also feel a little bit hate iron? Don't envy, in fact, as long as your dogs are still young and in good health, they can become masters of obstacles after agile training. Dog tunnel manufacturer introduces you to:

Preparation before training

1. Master basic obedience skills

Dogs between 1 and 2 years old are exactly the best age for agile training because they are mature and young, their spirit and body are in the best condition, and they are more likely to accept new things. Before agile training, your dog needs to master basic obedience skills, such as sitting down, lying down, coming over, following, and staying. These basic obedience passwords can help you better control your dog in future training.

2. Introduce obstacle tools

There will be a few basic items in the standard agile competition, including A-shaped board, pole winding, long jump, OEM dog tunnel, suspended table, single-wood bridge, seesaw, hurdle, jump circle, and open tunnel. These props may be used in future training. In the first few days of training, it is best to bring your dog to these props and get familiar with them in advance. You can also put some snack toys around the props to let the dog build a good impression of these things.

Getting started with agile training

1. Leapfrogging

Beginners can do agile training by starting from hurdles. For large and medium-sized dogs, it is best to control the initial height of the railing between 2 and 5 cm. Small dogs may even consider placing the railing directly on the bottom. The owner should use the traction rope to guide the dog to run to the railing at a faster speed and shout the order when the dog jumps. In most cases, the dog will cooperate with you about the obstacles. If your dog dare not step out, you can choose to practice in a narrow corridor, and encourage your dog with snacks and praise. When the dog gains confidence in repeated training, you can gradually increase the height of the railing.

2. Tunnel training

Dog agility tunnel is relatively difficult, suitable for the owner and dog who just started training. You need to prepare a short tunnel, keep your dog on one side, and let the other person prepare snacks and toys on the opposite side. Then you can guide your dog through the tunnel. If your dog seems hesitant, you can also put some snacks in the tunnel, which will make the dog more willing to get in. After your dog gradually gets used to the tunnel, you can prepare a longer and more curved tunnel for it.

3. Rope training

Pole-wound training is a difficult part of primary training and may require more time to practice. When you first start training, you need to widen the gap between the rods, it is best to allow you and your dog. Then, the owner needs to lead the dog in an S-shaped way around the middle pole to reach the opposite side. After repeating the practice repeatedly, you can gradually reduce the spacing, forcing the dog to bend his body to bypass the middle tunnel. After constantly bending and detouring, the dog has actually mastered the basic operation of the pole. After that, it may take several months to consolidate the practice before the dog can master it completely.

The above is the primary course of agile training. As long as the owner spends more time with the dog to practice, I believe that the dog can quickly master the trick.
