N Smith [quote=schh3fh2;2695625][QUOTE=N Smith;2693164] It can be in any language, and if that langage has a two word command(There are none in english), it is ok.

My dogs are trained in Hungarian (I am not Hungarian BTW) and some of the commands require two words to make sense (to humans, not dogs) and when I did my BH the judge was curious as to which language I was speaking, but definitely did not take anything off or make any comments about my two word commands.

This is not entirely true. All commands MUST be said in a one word manner. You would probably not get hit for it in a BH or any club level for that matter. Points should be taken at championships if not said in a one word manner…..


Hope this helps

From 2012 FCI Rules Page 7

Commands that are embodied in the trial rules are spoken in a normal, short and in a one word manner.
They may be done in any language, however must remain the same for an exercise.(valid for all phases).
The commands provided in the rules are suggestions. The same word is to be used for the same exercise.

Sorry you are correct, they can be technically two words, but must be vocalized as if one word.

I am doing my BH in Hungary, with my male, this coming spring. Even though I already did the BH with my female, I am going to have to re-write the written portion of the BH. Also, the test is written in HUNGARIAN, so thankfully my trainer will be translating for me...LOL

Good luck on your BH!!

Good to know. I had no idea until I watched that trial that you even had to take a written test.

Why would be afraid of Mike Diehl? LOL Johannes is just German and he tends to be rather brusque. He is fairly pleasant to trial under.
Just kidding..Mike is super nice.! And Johannes gave Max a very nice critique. I enjoyed him!

I did a BH under Johannes, it was fine. Actually, he yelled at me during my routine which might have unnerved me if I didn't sort of know him already. During my down out of motion he yelled for me to stop and asked me why I was going so far. I turned around said I was counting every step and he needn't be in such a hurry, turned back around, and finished counting my 30 steps. He just chuckled. He's kind of like that, will tease you and act all worked up but mostly he's just kidding around. At the Indy show, weren't you the one waiting like 20 minutes while he went on an on about the DDR GSD's hip conformation?
Thats funny..I guess I should not be thin skinned. My OB trainer here is like that too..we "argue" during class as to the proper way to train!

Yes, we waited for quite a while. I wondered what he was talking about! Max laid down and took a nap. Remember the young handler?..He said Max needed to show more drive..he had passed out from boredom!! (Max not the handler.)
