Whether you're introducing a puppy to the rules or helping an older dog overcome fear, every animal trainer knows that teaching your pup seven basic commands is essential for successful
dog trainingand for building a strong bond with your pet. The seven basic commands that all dogs must learn are sit, stay, down, come, off, no and heel. Instead of constantly yelling or saying “no”, teach your dog a “no” sign that tells him to stop whatever he's doing each time he hears it. We call them basic obedience commands and they are always included in the Valor K9 Academy basic obedience class, as well as in private classes and training programs.
At the end of the day, it's important to remember that repetition and practice are the keys to mastering these seven basic commands. Dogs learn quickly and, with your loving guidance, teaching them to “come”, “sit”, “stay” and even go to the bathroom will strengthen your relationship and encourage good behavior. If you have an enclosed yard, this is the ideal place to train your dog, especially with stay-and-go orders, which require some distance. In on-site training, you send your dog to a raised bed and he stays there in a calm state of mind until he is released.
In this episode of Lucky Dog, Brandon teaches Vinnie, an enthusiastic shelter puppy, the seven common commands that every dog and pet owner should know.
