Hand Signals & German Voice Commands

Hi all,

I am getting my new puppy soon and am curious as to where I can find a list of German commands for things like Sit, stay, etc...

Also, I'm looking for a list that has visual representations for hand signals.


Thanks in advance for any/all help. I tried using search but nothing relevant came up (it told me searching 6 months back was too much).

John.

Re: Hand Signals & German Voice Commands

John,

Welcome and congratulations on your puppy. Here is a link for German Commands.

What are you planning on doing with the dog? Are you interested in the AKC obedience handsignals, American sign language to train as a service dog?

Re: Hand Signals & German Voice Commands

If you plan on doing SchH, NO hand signals are allowed.

AKC hand signals OK.

Re: Hand Signals & German Voice Commands

I highly recommend all dogs learn hand signals no matter what they are training for as so many dogs go deaf or at least very hard of hearing when they get old so you can still readily communicate with them.

Thank you for the offer. I am giving some thought to using German Commands instead of English commands. I just think it would be very cool.

Re: Hand Signals & German Voice Commands

Hand signals are a great idea.

Here is a link with explanations to hand signals as well as visual representation:

http://www.bordercollierescue.org/br...iCommands.html

(Hand signals can be fun, too. I taught Tobey hand signals, but it never failed when friends were over, I'd say, "he knows beer commands." I'd give the signal to sit, and I'd say, "HEINEKEN!" Of course, he'd sit. I'd give the signal for down (as in lay down) and say, "GUINNESS!")

Re: Hand Signals & German Voice Commands

You can also "make up" handsignals that are easy to YOU. As long as it is something you can remember, that is all that matters.
