Schutzhund Training | Obedience


In the Schutzhund training obedience phase, it’s not uncommon to see green dogs refuse jumps during one or several periods during their training. They’ll often do weird things with one or more obstacles as they progress. They will also frequently behave perfectly at the next session with whatever obstacle they weirded out on if the handler will go about things matter of factly.

Each new session should be approached with a clean slate, so forget your previous experience the next time you go out! If you lower the jump to a fair height and the dog still refuses, there’s nothing wrong with insisting that the dog complete a jump before ending the session, i.e. taking it by the collar and aiding in its forward momentum. End the session once several jumps are taken.

Here’s a great article at All About Dogs that expands on trouble shooting in jumps training.
