Many people wish to train their dogs to be obedient and to respond to their commands. But how do you go about accomplishing this? You must educate the dog to link certain behaviours with the command you want him to obey.
There are several methods for accomplishing this, but the most effective one is to first persuade the dog to connect the command with a reward or a toy. We’ll show you how to educate your dog to heed orders in this post.
There is no requirement for a unique method or pedagogy. Begin teaching your dog the day you get him.
Even a three-month-old puppy can benefit from obedience and control training that can be used at home, on the street, and in the field, all of which contribute to the dog being a useful, obedient, safe, and happy companion.
Even a three-month-old puppy can benefit from this obedience and control training, which will help the dog become a useful, obedient, safe, and delightful companion at home, on the street, and in the field.
Here are ten commands which every dog should obey and every dog owner should require of his dog, after proper training by the owner.
- 1. The dog pays attention when his NAME is called. The tone of voice conveys acceptance or disapproval, yes or no, joy or rebuke.
- 2. ‘Come.’ Come to the dog; this might be complemented by a wave of the arm forth, then back. This instruction should be issued with a rising pitch and a pleasant tone.
- 3. ‘No.’ This is the most fundamental, crucial, and significant command in any dog’s training program. ‘No’ must mean exactly that, ‘no,‘ with no doubt, change of mind, or wavering.
Speak it firmly, loudly, precisely.
Follow up to verify that the dog quits doing whatever he is doing.
The success with which you’ve trained your dog to heed this brief command might be the difference between his life and death someday.
It distinguishes between an obedient dog and one that is not under control.
- 4. ‘Stay.’ The dog is to stay where he is, to remain calm and unmoved.
- 5. ‘Heel.’ To walk by your side, not too far forward, too far back or to the side.
Preferably on left side, and head kept near your left leg.
This command must be followed whether the dog is on or off the leash!
If you’re in the lead, don’t overdo it with leaps, jerks, and tugging.
- 6. ‘Stop.’ Related to ‘no,’ it means to stop walking, moving about, or otherwise being in motion.
- 7. ‘Go.’ This means to change into motion, to move, walk, run or chase.
- 8. ‘Quiet.’ To cease barking or making a commotion. A close relative of the command ‘no.’
- 9. ‘Steady.’ An intermediary order to slow down the dog, assuring him that everything is well, and reducing his nervousness, restlessness, or want to move, run, or leap.
- 10. ‘Sit’ and ‘down.’ The first is to have the dog on its haunches; the second is to have the dog lie down on all fours. Following the execution of this instruction, the command ‘stay’ may be sent.
