In Belgium many people also speak French from my understanding.
Admittedly somewhat off topic but I noticed that commands in German actually really are 'enlongated' and somewhat exaggerated. I notice that with 'Hier' to it's pronounced 'Hah-eeeeaaaar" Wouldn't that count as some type of 'double' command?

appport is used more in Belgium than Germany...not sure it is for retrieve tho! usually people use BRING....using a long long "ING" and breaking it into 2 syllables
there are some great videos on the retrieve, expanding on the method described above....which is what I basically do as well.....break an exercise down into small actions and bring them together when they are all trained....there was a great AKC style video called Positively Fetching...recently updated to Totally Fetching
The older video was great....I watched it twice at an AKC club and haven't seen the new one...but this is the expanded version of what was described...a dog with no big desire to play fetch will learn a nice retrieve this way.

Honestly, the fact that she doesn't get worked up in prey for retrieves will probably be to your advantage. There are different schools of thought on training retrieves, but I'm a firm believer in the dumbbell (or whatever object your sport requires you to retrieve) being *neutral*. I don't wave dumbbells around and try to get my dog interested in them. This has helped me train retrieves with no chewing (very important for IPO) and retrieves that are very consistent (same speed out and back, no reluctance to out, no dropping of the dumbbell, etc). I personally backchain formal retrieves, break it down into tiny steps and train it as a long chain of behaviors...obedience. Again, there are lots of ways including a prey-based retrieve, I've just had success with this way and it seems to be a good way for a dog that doesn't bring a lot of prey or obsession over the object to the retrieve.
As for the word, I've heard apport used as the retrieve command but I think the whole routine was French. Technically you can't mix languages but I've personally not seen that enforced.

That is interesting, the German word for fetch is the same as the French word for Bring.
I've never heard anyone use Apport in the routine before.

|K9 Gib Laut||Protection training is where I'm headed and anyone who can stoke her prey drive. I'm really looking for someone closer as well although I appreciate the recommendation.|

I do know of a very good trainer in Vallejo, but she's not Schutzhund specific, if that's what you're looking for. She has trained and competed in Schutzhund in the past, as well as French Ring, Mondio, AKC Obedience and Rally, dock diving, flyball, and more. This is her dog Feist, who is now 12 years old: Feist du Loups du Soleil | Loups du Soleil

|K9 Gib Laut||@cassidy's mom, I have been training with alameda schutzhund club. As of late because of their training day mainly based on Sundays I am open to more options due to that day being our family day. Any suggestions? I live in concord btw...|

Interesting, I've always heard the SchH people who use German commands say "Bring" and they roll the 'r' for the accent, for fetch, which is on the list too. I do see apport on the list but thought that was French as well.
