I grew up in a world and time without internet. Information could only be obtained through the (limited) television pro-gram, books, magazines or through personal acquaintances.
For special topics, such as here for example the department of Working dog training, there was hardly any tangible literature or even films. So, I drove around all the dog training areas in the area and was amazed how differently people worked with dogs there. And my instinct at that time warned me not to get involved with some special training methods. To anticipate: not all places were being worked, shall we say “strangely”. Even then there were very committed trainers with good ap-proaches. But unfortunately, they were rare. I will go into this in more detail in the chapter “Training techniques under the magnifying glass”.
I certainly did not get any information beyond the (everyday) dog sport in my youth, for example in the field of working dog training. In the later course of my life, however, I had to realize at the beginning of my own working dog training that the way of working was very similar to that of dog sports – probably be-cause the working dog handlers were also still active in the dog clubs.
A fact which has changed significantly from the structure to to-day. In the past, there was much more activity in the clubs and the Schutzhundsport was very popular in its Form. In addition, the alternative possibilities of today’s leisure activities did not exist at all. Clubs were therefore an important central contact point in the social area. Here one met like-minded people, who obviously had the same problems with the dog during the work with the dog as one had oneself and one coppered off there and/or tried one’s luck in trying something new. Everyone helped everyone. At least in most cases it gave the impression. Of course, there was also internal competition, but in the end, nobody could hide his knowledge, because everybody could al-ways watch during the training and that had the consequence that you helped each other and so you also developed yourself.
Today’s technology makes it possible to obtain information from the Internet in the simplest possible way. You can anony-mously, if you wish, leave your comments on all posts on Face-book and Co. Both the negative and positive comments on cer-tain topics in the dog area.
Also, the posted videos – especially the very popular ones – mostly reflect a false “truth” of the right dog training. The more spectacular, the more Likes. More Likes means at the same time broad recognition and opinions are made. A misconcep-tion that leads to this because you can no longer inform your-self neutrally.
Today the dog people speak no more common language. Eve-rything is marked by envy, know-it-all, and self-portrayal. I al-ways say, there are many “princesses” on the market. One sees
oneself with one’s knowledge as a member of an “aristocracy” and quickly feels personally attacked by criticism. That is why I find the description “princess” in our dog section very apt.
That is one of the reasons I write these books. Not for nothing do they carry the headlines like “Practice meets science” or “Practice – no science for itself”.
So, I was and am still trying to present a new, animal welfare- and appropriate form of understanding in dog training based on my practical knowledge together with scientific findings. And I also do not throw cotton wool balls in dog training. Eve-ryone who has ever led the highly talented and often older (be-yond the age of a young dog) purchased working k9 dogs knows that there are special challenges waiting.
When I discuss various training methods in the following chap-ters, these have so far always been the actual methods used in practice by authorities and others.
Only in the second part of my book I present my own concept of training young guard dogs and explain it scientifically. I was very happy to get a call from an enthusiastic working k9 dog handler and training supervisor, to whom I had sent my first book in advance to read. He told me euphorically that he was quite alone with his approach to dog training and that he is very happy that there is still someone who is intensively en-gaged in this field and who is willing to share his knowledge publicly.
I do not want and did not want to take over, show or judge any “training tricks” of various “sizes” of dog sport. The objective
of training working k9 dogs in comparison to sport dogs is com-pletely different and my books are about the benefit the reader gets from my knowledge for the daily practice with his working k9 dog. The books are equally suitable for experienced dog handlers as well as newcomers and advanced learners at au-thorities or in the private guard and security business. The be-haviour of dogs – especially in training – is always the same and the handling of them should be the same.
In this sense, my books may appeal to all those who are still developing themselves in dog training and would like to learn about other approaches or a different point of view. Standing still during the training is a step backwards. “Have we always done it this way” is a statement of the ignorant and those who are not open to the handling of dogs. The dogs are further in-discriminately “wound up in the protection Service”, without sense and understanding and above all on the back of the health of the dogs.
Ideally, my books should serve to offer one or another dog a life worth living and to achieve an “aha” effect with one or an-other dog handler, with the associated motivation to approach me and others and to develop. Just as I do, every day, with an-other book, with every dog, a study or in dealing with other dog handlers. Every day I also learn more.
Once this approach is understood, we are at a point where this book can and does provide real help, not only for the newcom-ers in this field.
That my approach appeals to many dog owners is shown by the many nice and positive messages through many different chan-nels, the phone calls, and personal contacts after the publica-tion of my first book.
For the first time in a long time I felt that we could give each other something. I have removed the envious and resentful ones from my personal profiles. And what can I tell you, I live much more comfortably with it. More time for the essentials and more time for those who call me with their very personal tricky questions on topics in this area and thus become new acquaintances, sometimes even new friends.
To be on the way together again in one thing lets arise in me just this already almost age-old feeling of the community of the Schutzhund-Verein. In this sense I wish you a lot of fun with my reading and much success in the practical implementation. Many thanks for this!
When I was a little boy, I was infatuated with German shepherd dogs. I wanted to know and learn all about them. But that was not as easy in my time as it is today. There was no Internet, so no WhatsApp or Facebook groups. No way to get information quickly. I only had my bicycle to ride over to the neighboring kennels and have a look around there.
But getting information there was not easy. The people there were not keen on sharing their knowledge, maybe because I did not have the correct “kennel smell” (I mean, I was not one of them) or because I was just a little boy.
My last resort was the library. And that is where I found it. My friend Rex, a book about an English police dog, from 1962. Po-lice officer Arthur Holman told such exciting stories about his police dog Rex, and I just could not get enough of them.
This book was the trigger for me to apply to join the police as a dog handler, which I became many years later. However, in this book I am not going to tell any from the many exciting sto-ries from my work with my K9 dog.
This book is intended to help all those who, like me, may have been looking for information about K9 dogs. Those of you who want to have a look behind the scenes. To learn tricks and tech-niques and dog training methods for K9 dogs. Everything I was denied when I was a little boy.
Here, in the first part of my trilogy, you can find all the basic information about K9 dogs to be at least level with the knowledge of professional K9 dog leaders in public authorities.
This detailed, summarized knowledge with real practical rele-vance, combined with scientific studies, is an excellent founda-tion for a firm place in the K9 dog training system.
We are all united by our love for our loyal comrades. My book will describe and explain their incredible performances. This book is supplemented by a much more extensive online course with the aim of becoming a K9 dog handler. If you are inter-ested in this, you can find the course on my website:
Thank you for your support by buying this book. You will find lots of useful insights and tips and I believe it will benefit you in your work with K9 dogs, both privately and in your job.
I hope you will enjoy reading this book!
