No clicker, no jerking, no flipping on the back, to rough stuff, no snipping fingers or inappropriate corrections. ONLY 6 COMMANDS. That’s all your dog needs!
COME: a solid recall “coming when called the first time”. We practice this when your dog is distracted by something because the recall is most important in real-life emergency situations.
SIT: a solid sit-stay. We do not use “stay”, it is built into sit and useless. Instead, we focus on the release command.
DOWN: a solid down-stay “We do not use “stay”, it is built into down and useless. Instead, we focus on the release command.
GO: We teach your dog a Greeting Routine, to meet strangers in a calm and friendly manner, no jumping, no lunging, barking etc.
OK: You don’t have to walk through a door-way ahead of your dog in order to be the leader. Having the dog walk with you is more practical, as long as you give permission to do so.
NO: There is no “leave it”, “stop it”, “drop it”. No is universal.
These basic commands are simple for the dog to understand and can be used interchangeable in many different situations.
