A vital part of being a responsible dog owner is making sure that your pooch masters basic obedience commands. Learning commands not only helps keep your pet safe in emergency situations, but it also makes the relationship you two share better. In fact, everyone in the household benefits when your dog is able to meet the expectations you have set regarding their behavior.

A Well-Trained Dog is a Happy Dog

Dogs are natural people pleasers. However, unless you teach him the basics, he’ll have no idea how to gain your approval. Furthermore, a disobedient dog can be a real challenge to deal with!

At the very minimum, your dog should learn how to respond to these basic commands:

  • Name recognition
  • Sit
  • Drop
  • Stay
  • Heel
  • Come
  • Leash walking
  • Polite greetings

Remember, these are just the basics. There are many more advanced commands your dog can be taught--it’s just up to you as to whether or not you’d like to take your dog’s training to a higher level.

Home or Away: Where Can Your Dog Learn Best?

Honestly, either. Some owners prefer to train their dogs personally in a quiet setting, while others prefer a class setting that allows them to socialize. In the end, it really all depends on what you feel is important for your dog to learn, your confidence in training, and how much time you have to commit.
