"out" command
 
the abandon gsd i adopt

will need lotsa bonding, thus the best way i reckon is to play with him
as he got good prey drive.

the only problem now is, he doesnt want to let go the tug toy or the ball

how can i train him to let go?

he will just continue to chew it when i bring him back into his kennel.

any advice?

:confused:

Use two balls/toys and rotate them as your dog returns with the other.

i taught my dog "leave it" and "drop it". if you don't
know how to train find a trainer.

If he is treat motivated, every time he brings you the toy give your command to drop, and offer a treat.

If that doesn't work (not too much for my insanely toy motivated boy) we rotated toys. I would say drop it and offer another toy.

I teach the OUT by making the tug go dead, and then immediately rewarding the out with a re bite. The game stops until the dog outs, and then immediately starts again.

I caution against bribing the dog to return the toy by showing it another one. You are just setting up a situation where the dog will only bring you something when you have something to offer.

I like to teach the dog that the act of tugging is the fun thing, not the possession of the tug.

I'm not alone in training the out this way. It's how most sport / LE / mil trainers that I know teach the out.

Did you have some advice?

David I was looking for a video like that when someone asked on my thread ......... I am going to PM them and point them here. Thanks for posting. It is the way the police here train it and if anyone needs a reliable out........of course one of the things I have learned....a stiffer dog easier to go dead
