Essential Commands to Teach Your Dog

Here are some great commands that my friend Clement from has been walking me through.


This is one of the easiest dog obedience commands to teach, so it’s a good one to begin with.

  • Hold a treat near to your dog’s nose.
  • Move your hands up, allowing his head to follow the deal with and leading to his bottom to lower.
  • Once he’s in sitting position, claim “Sit,” provide him the deal with, and share affection.
  • Repeat this sequence a few times every time until your dog has it mastered. After that ask your dog to sit ahead of mealtime, when departing for walks, and during different conditions where you’d like him calm and seated.


This command might help keep a dog out of trouble, bringing him back in the event that you lose grip on the leash or accidentally leave leading door open.

  • Set a leash and collar on your own dog.
  • Decrease to his level and declare, “Arrive,” while gently pulling in the leash.
  • When he reaches you, prize him with affection and a delicacy.
  • Once he’s mastered it with the leash, take it off – and practice the order in a safe and sound, enclosed area.


This can be one of the most difficult commands in pup obedience training. Why? As the job is a submissive position. You might help by keeping training positive and relaxed, specifically with fearful or anxious dogs.

  • Look for a particularly good smelling handle, and carry it in your shut fist.
  • Hold your side up to the dog’s snout. When he sniffs it, move your side to the ground, so he follows.
  • Afterward slide your hand along the bottom before him to inspire his body to check out his head.
  • Once he’s found in the down position, tell you “Straight down,” give him the handle, and share affection.
  • Repeat it each day. If your pet tries to be seated up or lunges toward your side, say “No” and have your hand apart.
  • Don’t push him right into a down location, and motivate every step your dog takes toward the right position. After all, he’s operating hard to figure it out!


Before attempting this one, make sure your dog is an expert at the “Sit” command.

  • First, ask your dog to “Sit.”
  • In that case open the palm of your hand in front of you, and say “Stay.”
  • Take a few steps back again. Reward him with a treat and affection if he stays.
  • Gradually boost the number of steps you take just before giving the treat.
  • Always reward your pup for staying put – whether or not it’s simply for a few seconds.
  • This is an exercise in self-control for your dog, so don’t be discouraged if it takes a while to master, particularly for puppies and high-energy dogs. After all, they want to be on the move and not only sitting there waiting.
