You might think training your German Shepard German commands is a difficult endeavor, but with patience and consistency, it won't take too long before your dog will "sprechen sie Deutsch." In fact, you may find that it takes you longer to remember the new phrases than your dog. Whatever your reason for wanting to use a different language, consistency and patience will be key to success.
If you have a puppy and you'd like to begin his training using German, the training won't differ too much from training in English. The most important factor is to know what which words you are going to use and stick to them. You may need to carry a list with you as a reminder, and make sure everyone interacting with your puppy knows these commands.
The hardest part will be patience and consistency as your dog is making the transition. Below are three methods that will help you stick to your goals. Read through them and pick the best one for you and your dog.
