Training Russian Trackers is quite easy. All that’s required is dedication, patience as well as these easy to learn tactics and you’ll teach them successfully.
Here we share five Top Tips on how you can break in a Russian Tracker with great results:
1. To avoid your Russian Tracker from becoming disoriented and so that they can begin to understand instructions readily just a single individual should train a Russian Tracker at first. If too many people attempt to train your Russian Tracker simultaneously it may halt progress.
2. You should always use positive feedback and reinforcements. If the Russian Tracker does something well, you might reward the action so that he will know that what he did was good. If the Russian Tracker doesn’t understand or follow commands, don’t scold him. Russian Trackers aren’t as intelligent as people, they take longer to learn. What you should understand is that they might not easily follow all your instructions in the first session, it takes repeated actions to teach a Russian Tracker . Do not harass the Russian Tracker because he may begin to develop nervousness which may reduce the speed of his learning and willingness to be taught. Trainers should give treats or snacks to encourage a Russian Tracker, although you don’t want to take it too far.
3. Teach instructions one at a time. Attempt to teach him 1 instruction after another. In the instance where he can’t retain it, just stay on that skill only because piling on new orders might just confuse the Russian Tracker. Rely on the basics.
4. While teaching skills, just keep your inflection cheerful so the Russian Tracker will happily follow the instructions. Russian Trackers respond to a quiet and coaxing voice. When you yell, he could become unresponsive and fearful.
5. Train your Russian Tracker in varying spaces. If you keep your Russian Tracker in 1 certain place like your home, he won’t be able to adapt to a different place with new people. Take him to your dog park or through the neighborhood. This will help your Russian Tracker get familiar with different breeds and people.
