Tips On Basic Training
When play time comes to an end for the day, think about starting some basic training for your new buddy. You'll know when your puppy is ready to start training when you're able to hold their attention briefly in anticipation of their next command.
Five Basic Commands To Teach Your Dog
Hold a treat by your dog’s nose and lift your hand along with the treat until his head follows your hand. This will cause their butt to lower to the ground in a sitting position! After they're sitting, say the word “sit,” and give them a treat and praise them.Practice sit several times a day. You could use the command to get him to sit before you put his food dish in front of him, or when you’re taking a walk and come to an intersection!
Get them into a sitting position, hold your hand up with your palm forward and say “stay,” while slowly moving away. If they move out of the sit or down position, come back toward him and start over.
Offer a treat and/or praise them when they remain in a stay position even if you only move two feet away.
