Core Exercises to teach your dog:
Whilst the training exercises that you can teach your dog are really only limited by your imagination. There are ‘core’ exercises that all dogs need to be taught. These are the essential domestics of dog training.
As a minimum, you should expect your dog to return when called and to walk on a loose lead, regardless of distractions.
Here are a few others, and why:
Being able to train your dog to sit is one of the easiest and most useful commands you can teach them. It makes for a great place to start, and is especially useful for calming the dog when they get overenthusiastic.
This command stops the dog from going near things which could harm them and keeps them safe while on walks. This is definitely one one of the most important and essential commands and should be trained accordingly.
This is not the simplest command for your dog to master at the start but with persistence it can be learnt and is an ideal command to stop your dog getting into trouble when out and about.
Very useful command, ideal for allowing you to enjoy visits to the local cafe, pubs or even just chatting to friends, by ensuring your dog is socially accepted and thus allowing you to do more with your dog, thus enriching yours and your dogs life.
The ‘leave’ command helps keep your dog out of danger if they do wander towards something which could bring them harm. The aim of this training is to teach your dog that there might be something even better as a reward if they leave the object where it is and come to you.
These are all basic techniques which your dog can be easily taught, allowing your dog to enjoy more outings with you and so enriching both your lives.
