Six Commands Every Dog Should Know
It is impossible for your dog to SIT and jump on a person at the same time.
As your dogs responds to the DOWN and STAY commands, you can enjoy being in the same room with your dog without interfering with your mealtime or guests.
If your dog is trained to SIT and STAY, it can not run out the door into traffic.
When your dog that obeys the HEEL command, the dog will not constantly pull on the leash and pull you down the street.
A dog that COMES WHEN CALLED will not have to be chased.
Teach your dog to go to and stay at a pre-determined “place” within the house. Useful when entertaining or when delivery people are at your door.
