Kurzhaar training at home
First of all, to train the Kurzhaar, you have to make contact and establish a trusting relationship with the dog. The German Kurzhaar is initially open, but improper handling will make it closed. And even your one mistake (for example, a tedious drill or too strict punishment) can become fatal by turning on the program “I don’t hear anything, I don’t understand anything, do what you want.”

Features of education and training of the Kurzhaar
Raising a German Kurzhaar puppy will require a lot of time and effort from you. Otherwise, you risk getting a large, but at the same time completely uncontrollable dog.
However, a competent owner will not encounter problems when training a Kurzhaar: these dogs are not dumb. They, moreover, are extremely curious and love to learn something new. Therefore, the pet itself can tell you a trick that he wants to learn.
A German kurtshaar may be a good watchman, but you won’t make a guard out of him. That is, if he notices a stranger or hears suspicious sounds, he will certainly raise an alarm. However, he will never attack a person. He would rather show curiosity towards the “outsider” than suspicion. So if you need a guard, choose a different breed.
If a Kurzhaar puppy appears in a house that already has pets, they can say goodbye to a quiet life. The young cop will ambush them, hunt and invent the most sophisticated bullying. All pets are divided into live toys or prey.When it comes to a cat or other dog, they can readily engage in active games. As a result, kurtshaar and other pets will become friends "do not spill water." However, small animals, rodents and birds can be severely affected - even fatal. Keep this in mind when deciding to have a kurtshaar.
German kurtshaar can not be beaten and generally apply pain. In an extreme case, a dog who decides to use the teeth to compete for the leader’s place can be pressed to the ground. But this is an extreme measure!
A huge help in training the German Kurzhaar will be your sincere interest in training. The German Pointe subtly feels the owner’s mood and reacts unmistakably to him.
Kurzhaar is quite capable of mastering the general course of training. You only need a little more perseverance and patience.
Basic lessons to ensure the safety of the dog and the peace of others: “To me”, “Nearby”, “Fu”, “Place”, “Sit”, “Lie”, “Give”. Further wisdom - at your discretion, the intelligence of the German Kurzhaar allows you to master many things. But basic commands must be executed implicitly and in any situation.
A Kurzhaar puppy is just gushing with energy, and there is no point in starting classes if you do not let the dog throw out excess "courage".
The loads increase gradually, with age, giving the pet the opportunity to build muscle corset, strengthen the ligaments and respiratory system.
Natasku must be carried out by a professional dog handler familiar with the breed.The experience of training other hunting dogs is not enough - there are nuances in the behavior of the kurzhaar.
For example, he should not be punished for trying to chew a bird - this is corrected extremely gently, since such behavior is embedded in the genes.
An illiterate trainer can spoil your pet in just a couple of classes, and it’s almost impossible to fix the consequences, so choose your instructor meticulously.
Kurzhaar is not a mindless performer, but an intellectual; this is also worth considering.
If you decide to start a German Kurzhaar, but do not want to hunt, there is a solution. You can go in for sports or race with mechanical hares.
However, get ready for imminent difficulties, as “you can't crush genes with your finger”. And pigeons with street cats are unlikely to be delighted with their new neighbor.
German kurtshaar can be a companion if you have a lot of free time (an adult dog does not even get out of breath after 3 hours of running around) and a huge desire to deal with a pet.
Kurzhaar successfully masters the search and rescue service, sports disciplines (agility, freestyle, frisbee), willingly goes on a hike or on a bike ride. Options are limited only by your imagination.
But if you are going to put the kurtshaar on the sofa, then there is no harm. Out of boredom, he will go mad, get angry and put things in order in the apartment. This is a working dog, and if you are not hunting, find a suitable alternative for at least the next 10 years.
