Find out why you should pair verbal commands with hand signals and which commands use them. Learn basic leash and grip techniques.
Sit is the most basic and vital skill for any dog—and the cornerstone of control.
Teach your dog down, the ultimate form of control
Stay is a skill that saves lives and is worth every moment spent teaching it.
No is the most common command. It ensures safety on walks and in the kitchen, enforces basic manners and respect, and stops unwanted behavior.
Off comes in handy every day to keep your dog from jumping on people and furniture.
Also known as recall, come is an important skill that teaches a dog how to return to you from any distance.
Walks should be fun, not a tug-of-war. Learn heel and teach any dog to walk beside you and match your pace without pulling, racing, or lagging.
