Recall Can Save Your Dog’s Life

Emergency Recall


The emergency recall ensures that your dog will come running when

you call it in any and every situation. It is used only in emergencies,

such as when your dog is about to run in front of a moving car. Training

your dog to come in an emergency may save its life. This is a different

command than the simple recall, often called the come command


Come Command


The come command, or recall, can save you from a lot of aggravation

and frustration. You can use it to get your dog to come if it slips out of

its leash, to get it to come quickly inside from the yard, or to come over

for some cuddle or playtime. Be sure to only ask your dog to come to

you for good things. This way, it will always be happy to come on cue.

Practice this frequently throughout your dog's life, rewarding

compliance with praise and treats when available.


Heel Command / With Me


Heel Command is a dog training command used to keep your dog from

pulling on the leash. This means your dog is walking in pace with you

in a relaxed manner. A loose leash makes walking your dog much

more fun and makes it more likely you'll get your dog out for

the exercise and socializing it needs. You can use any word or phrase to

mean the same thing. Instead of saying "with me," some people use the

command "easy" or "no pull." Choose something easy for you to

remember and simple enough for your dog to understand.


Leave It Command


Leave it is the basic dog training command you use to tell your dog not

to pick up something it's approaching. This command can prevent it

from eating something harmful or help you to save your favorite pair

of shoes from being chewed. This cue is best used when you spot 

something that may interest your dog, but your dog has not picked it

up yet. If your dog picks up something before you can say "leave it,"

then the command drop it can protect it from accidentally ingesting.


 Sit Command


The sit command is usually the first command people teach their dogs.

It seems pretty basic, but it can play an important role in managing

unwanted behaviors. For instance, a dog can't sit and jump at the same

time. By training your dog to sit, you've begun the work needed to

prevent it from jumping. Also, training your dog to sit can help it settle

down and relax when needed.


Stay Command


The stay command is useful in many situations. It can keep your dog

out from under your feet, or it can save its life by preventing it from

running into dangerous situations. If your dog knows how to stay on

cue, you can manage its behavior well in public and private. It may also

allow you to let your dog off the leash in certain situations when it

must stay still.


Wait Command


When you give your dog the wait command, you're telling it to not

move forward until you give it the release word. It is perfect for

keeping a dog from bolting out of a door, its crate, or the car. Wait tells

your dog something it wants is coming, but it has to be still to get it.

This cue is similar to stay but gives your dog a little more freedom

while waiting.


Down Command


The down command is important for several reasons. First, just like

the sit command, it's incompatible with certain unwanted behaviors.

A dog can't jump up and surf the counter while it's in down. By

teaching your dog to down on command, you have a tool to manage.

several common behavior problems. It also promotes relaxation for

excited dogs. down serves as the building block for some other behaviors. For

instance, before you can train a dog to roll over or go to place , it

needs to know how to down.
