Heel:The dog is always on your left heel with the command heel

The dog is always on your left heel with the command heel

When you say to your dog to heel, it means that he is supposed to walk with you with his head on your left heel. This is one of those dog training tricks that will make the dog realize that you are the one who is in charge and this will also keep the dog calm when in public. Once you have trained you dog to heel, he will always remain on your left heel whether you are standing, running, walking, changing directions and he will not try to run ahead of you and will also not try to pull the leash.

Sit: Sitting dog

Teaching your dog to sit is real easy. Even a young puppy as old as four to five weeks can learn to sit in a day or two. You just have to make your dog sit by by saying it repeatedly until he does it right. TO make sure he understands the sit command, reward your dog with a treat whenever he does it right.

Down:

This trick is to be used when you want your dog to be in a place for long even without you. This helps your dog to stay out of trouble by not encountering any nearby distraction. Remember that making your dog perform some very basic dog training tricks will not remain difficult once you start to understand the behavior of your pet.

Stay

When you say to your dog to stay it means that he has to keep him self stick to the place he is currently in either in sitting position or in a down position. Mostly this trick is taught when the dog has learned to follow the “sit” and “down command”.

Stand:

They can stand up like you! How cute and smart?

Imagine you took your dog outside for a bath and there he is either laying down or sitting making it very difficult for you to wash him. This is where this trick comes into play. This is one of those dog training tricks that many people overlook as they think dogs can do this all the time but you have to teach him in order to follow your command.

Come:

Teaching your dog to always come to you when you call him can be a bit tricky at times if you are late in training him how it is done. Usually dogs get distracted easily and you might end loosing your dog attention. There are many ways of teaching a dog to follow the “come” command and the mostly used method is with the help of a long leash.

Off:

This command is to be used when your dog is jumping on you or on your couch. Saying “Off” will indicate to the pet that he should not be jumping here and he is now supposed to get off whatever he in on. If this is the first time your dog is behaving this way then it might not be very difficult to teach him how to follow this command.
