When too many people are trying to train your Harrier simultaneously this might stop the process.

If the Harrier will not understand and follow your commands, never berate him. Harriers aren’t as intelligent as people, they take longer to learn. What you need to take into account is that they won’t readily understand your commands in just 1 teaching, it requires repetition to break in a Harrier successfully. Don’t push the Harrier since he might begin to develop fear which will probaby reduce the speed of his learning and readiness to be taught. Trainers should give them food or treats in order to praise a Harrier, but you don’t want to take it too far.

3. Teach commands 1 at a time. Make sure to teach him one order after another. In case he is unable to remember it, remain on that lesson only because adding more instructions may just confuse the Harrier. Stick to the basics.

4. In executing orders, just keep your tone pleasant so that the Harrier will gleefully follow the orders. Harriers respond best to a quiet and coaxing voice. If you ever yell, he may be annoyed and afraid.

5. Train a Harrier in varying spaces. If you keep a Harrier in one particular environment like your house, he might not be able to adjust to a different environment with different individuals. Take him to a park or through the neighborhood. This will aid your Harrier get used to more breeds and people.
