Do you have use German Commands for BH?
 
My goal is to get Max's BH this fall. We are going for a first meeting at a club in Feb. Just wondering as we are training..do you have to use the german commands?

Maybe just whisper the english command, hopefully, Johannes is hard of hearing!

No you don't have to use German commands. Use whatever commands you want,they just should be in the same language.

No, he might give you crap for it in jest but it won't matter. Good luck!

I speak English to my dogs. Have trialed under Johannes a number of times and he has never said a thing to me about it. He expects you to know the rules, know the pattern, and then the watches the dog.

English is good..I think I am too old to learn a new language! I am going to take a look at OG Landshark with Nate Harves to help me. Hoping for a good fit for Max and I!

My first dog that I started in SchH with was trained in English (she was older and already titled in OB) and I still worked her when I started my second who was still working when I started my third, etc. It has just been easier for me. I have other reasons too. :)

Treue and Nike were bilingual except for the platz command which they did not know.

You can use whatever command you want (English, French, German, Pig Latin??), but you must use the same command during the entire routine.

"Commands are to be spoken in a normal tone, brief, consisting
of a one-word command. They may be given in any language, however must be the same for the related exercise."

thanks for the link..Can you purchase a rule book? Or should I?

No need to - just download and read through the BH section of the FCI rules. I can PM you info on the BH written test which you must take before you do your first BH - has some nitpicky rule questions and I had to hunt for answers!

BH stuff starts at about page 22, but the rest is good to read - contains some good info. http://www.fci.be/circulaires/55-2011-annex-en.pdf
