Schutzhund Training Equipment and Commands

 

 

Collars

A fur-saver collar
Harness for Young Dogs working in Protection

 

Atte 

 

Leashes

5 to 6 foot Leash for walking and general obedience
3 to 4 foot lead for more advanced obedience (does not allow slack for heeling and can be shoved into your pocket)
15 foot line for tracking and protection
30 foot line for tracking (This can come later when your ready for Schutzhund 1 Tracking)

 

 

Treats

The treats should be small pieces, about the size of half a dime, that don’t have to be chewed up to swallow, such as hot dogs or cut up raw meat if dog is on raw diet. This is so that the dog doesn't’t have to stop what they are doing (forward movement, for example) and chew up their treat. We use treats in all of our foundation work in obedience.

Tug and Play

Pieces of leather/chamois for tug play
Ball on a rope and ball to throw
Long whip with toy on end
Tug Toys

 

 

Other Equipment

A Crate that fits in your car (bringing a dog to training without a crate could cost you some damage to your vehicle as the dogs get very excited and want to break out of your car.) You will need some means of securing the dog when you are away from your vehicle at training that is safe to the dog and other participants. Leaving a loose dog in a vehicle with the windows rolled down is not recommended as dogs frequently jump out of the car and can get bite by another dog or get into a dog fight.
