puppy training command questions

Those are the basic ones to reach as your pup grows but there are plenty of others. My dogs know "who's here" and they run to the window and see who is here. I'm teaching Cain "up" (him putting him feet on my chest) we have done touch-him touching where I say. I've done watch shake. Use the search bar. There are lots of threads asking the same

Teachin a ton of commands isnt really something to worry about . Be consistant. Practice in short sessions a few times a day . Get the basics down perfect and then you can teach fluff if you really feel the need.

IMO, the most important thing every dog should know is a reliable recall (come). This is something that could very well save a dog's life. If a dog ever gets loose, the leash breaks, the fence isn't as secure as you thought, a solid recall would bring the dog back to you instead of him/her running into the street and being hit by a car. Second would be a drop-it or leave-it command. Again, this could save his life by allowing you to remove an object they shouldn't have like glass, poison, a stray cat... Third would be a reliable stay/wait. No one wants to worry about their dog bolting out the door everytime it's opened. After these, walking politely on leash, sit, and down.

puppy training command questions

To go along with the above do not ever tell your dog to come and let him NOT come. The mistake I made was accepting wait into wait for a minutes. I now working on freeze. Don't move til I tell your ass you can move.

There is also " come" and "hey Mel get over here. " come is more formal and only used when he better listen if he knows what's good for him and I don't use his who government name.

You have a good start. Do NOT teach them all at once. Do 10-20 minute sessions a few times a day if you want but not all at once. Always end on a positive note. And do not move on to another commend until your dog gets the current one 9 out of 10 times.

Look for some confidence building games and toys as well. I have a slot in the house when I send my boy to his bed when there is someone at the door. You don't want your door to open and your dog to run out. Ever.

There is a difference between tricks and commands IMO.

Jean Donaldson's book Culture Clash does a nice job of outlining exercises to teach the basic commands: sit, down, stand, stay, come and heel and then breaks them down into levels: kindergarten, elementary school, high school and college.

These are commands that you are going to continue to work on and refine from puppyhood through adulthood; increasing levels of difficulty as the dog matures and learns.
