Food Lure
The Food Lure is the prerequisite to all other commands because the lure is used to teach the dog a concept or command.

 

Focus (Look at Me)
The Focus command is the most important command because it teaches your dog to give you their attention. After your dog acquires the concept of (Focus) in a controlled environment such as your home, it should be practiced in as many different environments as possible to generalize the behavior.

 

Recall (Come)

The Come command or Recall is important for you to bring the dog back to your side or to a specific location. After your dog acquires the concept of Come in a controlled environment such as your yard, it should be practiced in as many different environments as possible to generalize the behavior.

 

Sit
Sit is useful in many different ways because it helps put your dog in a slightly calmer state and teaches your dog to be calm when distractions such as other dogs are nearby. Pair the Sit command with Focus for best results.

 

Down
Down is useful in many different ways by putting your dog in a calmer state or by stopping movement quickly. Down is often used when the dog becomes excited and can be an immediate correction for jumping. Down is often paired with Stay or Place.

 

 

Stationary Heel
The Stationary Heel is great for getting your dog to focus on you and to stay by your side. Heel is also great for helping your dog from pulling tendencies and over-leading while walking. It also helps your dog to ignore distractions such as other dogs.

 

Moving Heel
The Moving Heel is a very challenging command for your dog as it requires your dog to Heel and Focus and to hold that Focus for a very long time. Moving Heel is very useful for avoiding public distractions such as large crowds and traffic.

 

Loose Leash
Loose Leash training teaches your dog that he should follow beside the human and is the default position while walking. Your dog should abide by this regardless of the tension of the tether. This training is often used to correct walking difficulties.

 

Boundaries
Teaching your dog boundaries can keep your dog safe from dangerous areas like roads and is especially useful to isolate rooms around the house from your dog without having to close doors.

 

Impulse Control / Distraction Training
This control technique is critical for refining your dog’s obedience training, allowing you to give your dog commands in very distracting environments.
