Command Types You Can Teach
1- Sit Down Command
2- Come Here Command
3- Wait Command
4- Lie down Command
5- Watch Command
These 5 basic commands must be given
SIT DOWN COMMAND
While giving food to puppies, they are given a seat and accustomed to command. Some puppies sit quietly and wait for the meal during the preparation of the meal. In this case, the name of the dog is mentioned and attention is drawn, then the "SIT DOWN" command is repeated and the dog gets used to this command.
From an early age, puppies play, eat, etc. the situations are practiced verbally by being called. At this age, the name of the dog should be pronounced and the word "COME HERE" should be said after drawing the attention of the dog. In the leash training, the dog is told "STOP" to prevent the dog and the leash of the dog is pulled with the "COME HERE" command and the coming dog is rewarded.
The basis of this command is the "STOP" command. After the dog receives the "STOP" command, the trainer turns towards the dog and gives the signal "STOP" and gives the command "WAIT".
LIE DOWN COMMAND
It is considered an unnecessary command by some. Sometimes dogs have difficulty understanding this command and even resist. The simplest way for this training is to hold the legs while the dog is at the command "SIT", applying pressure from the shoulder area and repeating the "LIE DOWN" command to make the dog take its position. In cases where the dog resists, the dog is warned with the command "NO, LIE DOWN".
Usually from a young age, dogs follow their owners when they go outside.
During the walk, the command is repeated and the dog gets used to it. If the dog is in an undesirable move, the leash is pulled and the command "WATCH" is repeated with the "NO"
command. The dog is rewarded for the correct movements it makes.
The collar should be loose. After success in this leash training, the leash is occasionally opened to the dog and the dog is freely accustomed to the “WATCH” command.
Lots of repetitions and games play a very important role in the training of the dog. Because the older the dog gets, the more difficult its training will be.
