Training Goals

  1. Basic Obedience Commands on leash

    1. Name - Give eye contact

    2. Sit - Sit where you are on the first command (verbal and/or hand signal) with or without food. Remain in position until released.

    3. Down - Lay down where you are, on the first command (verbal and/or hand signal) with or without food. Remain in position until released.

    4. Stay - Remain in location and position until released.

    5. Come - Come immediately to the front of the handler and remain there, even away from distractions.

    6. Heel - Come to handler’s left side, sit and pay attention. Walk forward maintaining this position for a little way if asked. 

    7. Place - Go to your bed and stay until released

    8. Leave it - Ignore that distraction: walk on past

    9. Get it - Retrieve that toy

    10. Drop it - Drop what is in your mouth

  2. Basic Manners

    1. Polite greetings: No lunging at or jumping on people or dogs

    2. Loose leash walking

    3. Food refusal / discrimination/ no jumping on or stealing from countertops

    4. Door manners: waiting at open doorways, doorbell manners, etc

    5. No (unnecessary) barking

    6. Riding in a car, loading and unloading properly

    7. Manners and Obedience around other animals (dogs/cats)

    8. Appropriate Play

    9. Crate Manners

  3. Grooming and Handling: 

    1. Brushing

    2. Nail trims

    3. Ear cleaning

    4. Exams, etc.

Things that I do NOT anticipate achieving during this board and train:

  • Reliable manners for extended periods of unsupervised time

  • Complete removal of food rewards from trained behaviors

  • Making new skills completely reliable in all situations, especially brand new or unusually exciting circumstances

These are all higher level training goals that will require additional time and practice to master.
