Your dog will learn all of the basic commands (heel, sit and down) and learn to eliminate outside in one specific area. In our basic course we also teach the specialized commands “go say hi” and “go to your place.”
All non-aggression related behavior problems are either solved or prevented at this level, giving you the confidence that you dog will not only be well behaved at home, but also in public setting.
Lesson 1: Setting up the environment, handling the leash, heel, automatic sit, sit and stay, down, down and stay, “go to your place.”
Lesson 2: Down on play, walking with a loose leash, down with focus, fixed sit
Lesson 3: Sit from a down, finished come, sit and focus, down from a distance, evaluation and transition
Lesson 4: Come command
Lesson 5 (at a park): Come with distraction, working with a 30 ft lead doing all commands from a distance
We train you to train your dog. Consistency is key, therefore, we can’t guarantee results unless you are doing your part. Thank Dog! will happily follow up at no extra charge if you are following the plan and still encounter problems.
