Basic Dog Obedience Training

Name Training This sounds simple, but many dogs are not properly conditioned to their own name. Name training is best described as an attention getting exercise that teaches a dog to look directly at us upon hearing their name.

Leash Manners This is not precision heeling, that comes later. Leash manners educates you in proper leash handling skills and teaches the dog to walk calmly at your side with no leash pulling, jumping, running in circles around you, or other improper behavior. Many concepts from our Dog Behavior Counseling are introduced at this point in training to help address any other behavioral problems that may exist.

Sit & Sit Stay Dogs are trained to sit upon the first command. Your dog is also conditioned to maintain a sit stay until released or given an additional command.

Down & Down Stay Dogs are trained to down upon the first command. Your dog is also conditioned to maintain a down stay until released or given an additional command.

Come Dogs are to return to the handler and sit squarely in front of him/her upon the first command. Your dog is to maintain the sit until released or given an additional command.

Heel Dogs are to heel at the handlers left side in a precise manner adjusting to the handler's speed and direction without command. Your dog is also to perform an automatic sit on a stop.

Place Dogs are trained to go to a specific spot such as a crate or mat and remain there until released. Many people ask how this is different from a down stay. A down stay requires a specific body posture that must be maintained while a place command allows the dog more freedom to stretch, scratch, etc. A dog may place for several hours and it would not be fair to expect a formal down position to be held the whole time. A dog can relax in the place command. This command works great to keep your dog from under foot when at home or out with the family. You always know where your dog is!

Release When your dog has completed an exercise and nothing else is expected of them, a release command such as free is given and they can do as they will, providing it is not improper behavior.

Leave It Dogs are always getting into things we wished they would not. When commanded leave it your dog should immediately leave alone whatever had their interest, whether it is a ball, rabbit, trash, or your evening dinner.
