Blind search command

What is the proper command one should use when teaching a dog to run the blinds. It's just me home in my backyard. No decoy or helper. Is it revere?

I say go round and then change it to revier after many reps of the dog knowing my hand direction signal.

are you using blinds? I use to use blue spruce trees with Karlo....then when we trained him to an ecollar we used bumpers to retrieve and put them in a wagon wheel pattern to teach him directionals. It really helped with his blind search exercise, my hand signals were fun for him and he learned to focus on me without the high state of drive he'd do on the field with actual blinds.

Yeah, I went to lowe's and picked up an 8 foot section of privacy fence and split it into 4 foot pieces and made an L. So I had a blind at home to work with. I'll set up cones or something to work on hand directions. Someone should write a book called. IPO FOR DUMMIES.

Revier or voran (vor-on) or you could use search.

I wasn't sure if revier was the command for a bark and hold or if revier included the blind search and once the decoy was found the dog was just expected to do a bark and hold. I see a lot of decoys saying revier to the dog when it comes into the blind. Didn't wanna mix up commands.

I use revier. You can teach it going around a chair or pole. Then transfer it to whatever. Trees, cones, cars, blinds. It's an obedience command.

You have to use the same command for all the blinds. Believe me, the dogs KNOW the helper is there. We use it to turn the dogs on in protection training and for blind search.

I use voran. Basically it means search, find bark. As others have said, I get the dogs going around everything. I use large trees, trash cans, and blinds of course. Really the anything.

What method are you using to teach it?
