Introductory

The first stages of training are to learn the basics, all dogs from puppy to older, toy Maltese's or a large Great Dane, will get some form of benefit from obedience training. The basic steps of training will provide a social, responsible, and pleasurable dog who will respond to the basic commands.

 

The basics provided in the introductory classes include:

  • How to train, and the best times to train
  • Recall (come) on command
  • Basic heel work
  • Sit and stay on command (30 seconds, on lead)
  • Down and stay on command (1 minute, on lead)

Tips

  • If your dog is hard to control (eg. pulls a lot when walking), try using a Halti collar.
  • Taking walks after dusk allows your dog to get used to any shadows or normally unseen events during training.
  • Your dog will train better if you feed them after training rather than before.
