German Dog Commands

Using German dog commands to train your pet can be both effective and fun.

Find a list of useful commands to use below!

If you want to learn how to teach your canine friend an obedience command find all the information you need here "Dog Training Commands".

Why use a different language to teach your dog obedience?

Make your commands stand out for your pooch!

Even though we can teach our dogs some words in English, verbal language is not their strength! Using a command in a different language like German, will make it easier for your hound to hear it out from your day to day words.

For example: if you teach your pet the command "sit" but you also use the word often to ask your kids to "sit" at the table! your furry friend will learn that "sit" is not always a reliable word to respond to.

Using German dog commands will make them clear and your puppy will know to respond to them!

Show-off with friends and family!

Impress your family and friends with your dog's skills as well as your knowledge of a second language!

Imagine your furry friend trying to jump on your sister in law as she enters, and you confidently saying "Fido setzen". It will blow their mind away!

Have more fun telling them about other German dog training commands they can try on your pet!

It's fun!

Your training sessions will be fun! This is a key element of a good dog training session. When you are having fun, are relaxed and paying attention to your furry friend, he/she will learn faster! And both of you will enjoy the time together as well.
