How To Train Obedience To A Dog


Teaching your dog commands can be a very fun and rewarding experience for both you and your dog. Teaching your dog to obey commands can also help you keep control of your dog in emergency or dangerous situations, and can even help prevent them from running away. The first four commands are the most important to learn before anything else, so we’ll start with those, then move on to more advanced obedience training after that.

Teaching your dog the ‘sit’ command.

The sit command is an excellent one to start with. It doesn’t require a lot of physical strength, and it’s also not something your dog will be likely to try on his own, as he’ll be unlikely to sit down on his own unless you’ve trained him to do so. In fact, the ‘sit’ command is one of the first things that most pet owners like their dogs learn because it helps them stay in place during walks and other activities in which they might otherwise wander off or run out into traffic.

Teaching your dog the ‘down’ command.

The Down Command

The down command is one of the first commands you should teach your dog. This command will be used in many different training scenarios, as well as day to day activities such as grooming and petting. Teaching your dog to lie down on command is easy and can be done using positive reinforcement training methods.

Teaching Your Dog To Lie Down

First, get yourself a treat that he loves (hot dogs work well). It’s best if it’s something small enough so that he can eat it while lying down or sitting up with his head up towards you. Demonstrate what you want by lying down on the floor and offering him a treat when he does too

Teaching your dog the ‘come’ command.

The next step is to get the puppy’s attention. Hold the treat near its nose so it can smell it and then call its name. When he turns his head towards you, move the treat from his nose towards his face and say “Come” in an enthusiastic voice. The goal here is to encourage your dog to follow the treat on a straight line back to you with no stopping along the way or looking around for other distractions. Keep repeating these steps until he comes running when called and only reward him when he arrives in front of you with something else in hand besides food!

Teaching your dog the ‘stay’ command.

  • Teach your dog to stay in a sitting position:
  • Have the dog sit and then give a command like “stay” or “sit”.
  • Keep walking away from your dog until you are sure that he or she will not follow you, at which point you can turn around and praise the dog for staying put. If the dog doesn’t stay put, then repeat step one until they do!

Teaching your dog the ‘heel’ command.

Teaching your dog the ‘heel’ command.

The first thing you’ll want to do is teach your dog how to walk by your side. The ‘heel’ command is something that will help your dog stay close and under control while walking with you, so it’s important that they learn this early on in their training program. You can start off by saying “come” as they are walking behind you and reward them as they move closer to you each time they follow along. Once they get used to this step, add in another command such as sit or down until finally just saying one word is enough for them to understand what’s being asked of them. Remember that this training should only be done when there are no distractions around since it requires attention from both parties involved!

You can also use a leash or other type of restraint if needed (such as choke chains) until the animal has been trained enough where no further assistance will be required during walks outside around town or at home where distractions exist everywhere from busy streets filled with cars going every direction possible along with other potential dangers including dogs barking loudly nearby…etcetera…etcetera…

Training a dog to obey commands is important

Training your dog to obey commands is important for the safety of both you and your pet. If your dog doesn’t listen to you, it can be difficult to control him when he’s excited about something or if there are other dogs around. You might not be able to keep him from charging out of the house into traffic, or from jumping up on a child who may not yet be able to handle his excitement.

You also want to make sure that your dog feels safe in every situation; this means teaching him how to behave around people he doesn’t know well so that he doesn’t feel threatened by them. It also means teaching him how to act around other dogs so that no one gets hurt during playtime or walks through the neighborhood together.

As an owner, remember that obedience training will make both you and your dog happier over time!


In summary, I would say that the more you train your dog, the better he will be. It’s really important to take time with each of these commands because it will help you know what commands are important for which situations and what commands aren’t. The more time you spend training your dog, the more likely he is to understand his place within your household and obey as a result.
