As a dog trainer, I recommend teaching your pup 8 essential commands to help you in your daily life. These commands include 'calm', 'wait', 'observe', 'sit', 'stay', 'free', 'okay', and 'shake'. Teaching these commands requires a handful of treats, a collar, a leash, patience, and an alpha dog voice. With these commands, you can take your pup for a walk, let them in and out of the car, and prevent them from running into traffic.
Additionally, these commands can help capture your pup's attention and distract them from problem situations. To teach these commands, you'll need to establish a relationship with your pup and practice the commands regularly. With the right training, your pup will be able to understand and obey these 8 essential commands.
