German Commands

Hello I'm getting a new pup next week. I'd like to teach him his commands in German (more extensively than the sitz and platz that my current shepherd knows). Wondering if anyone can give me some more of the commands and their german form (and pronunciation). Also eventually going to start him in some sort of a protection training so commands that are commonly used in those settings would be nice. Also what are some of the other things besides the basic obedience commands do they need to know for schutzhund and the other sports?

My german comands are dog sports related. Not sure how helpful you would find them outside of the few basic ones:

Hier! - command for recall - pronounced same as english "Here!"

Fuss - command for heeling - pronounced Foose

Bleiben _ (sp may not be correct on any of these) Blybin - stay

Aus - Ouse (rymes with mouse) Out

Revere - Pronounced the way it looks (as in Paul) - Search the blinds

Vor on - Pronounced the way it looks - Command used for go out/send out

I use Czech and English with my dogs, in time you will learn that the language used makes no difference, tone of voice, repetition and your body language is what your dog will work off.

I also use Mit Mir (with me) for Patton to stand between my legs. Pfui for his "drop it". Get out of the kitchen is in English (grin)

Hundekommandos - Dog Commands in German

Right before we got our puppy I googled a bunch of German Dog Command sites. I was hoping to use all German but I'm just not fluent enough for it to come automatically to me. And things like "right paw, left paw, tell me a secret" are more impressive if people know what you just asked your dog to do.

Ok call me wacky ...........

I'm Scottish and use English language on my shepherd
Mainly because this is the language I speak :whistle

Never quite got my head around why if you don't speak German would you give your dogs commands in German

Maybe it's just me though

There are a number of reasons you might want to use German commands.
1) traditional for Schutzhund training
2) Less likely to "ding" on regular conversation
3) It is good for our brain to learn new things, like vocabulary
4) the always amusing "of course he speaks German, He's a German Shepherd".

I use german but after listening to them am really sad i didn't go for French commands - they sound so much happier and softer than both german or english
Guess my next dog is gonna speak french
