Basic Obedience

  • Sit

  • Stay

  • Down

  • Come

  • Heel (leash walking)

  • "Leave it" - for stealing and chewing

  • “Drop” - to drop things out of their mouths.

  • “Off”  - to get of anything or anyone they're jumping on

  • "On Your Bed" - to go lay down on their beds

  • "Get Your Toy" - to bite on a toy rather than your hands/clothes

Intermediate Obedience

  • Front & Finish - calling your dog to you, they will sit directly in front of you, then they will go behind you to sit on your left side. This is all one command.

  • Precision Heel - sit when you stop. Turn left and right staying in proper position.

  • 3-5 minute "sit" with distractions - toys being thrown past the dogs, food distractions, people and dogs running by, all while the dog maintains his long sit for 3-5 minutes.

  • 6-10 minute "down" with distractions - same as above but with the dog in a down position.

  • 10 minute "on your bed" command with high distractions - dogs can not get off their beds until released, no matter what's going on around them. This includes running, playing dogs.

  • Down in motion - walking fast and commanding a "down", your dog must follow the command and "down". You will keep walking while your dog remains in position.

  • Sit in motion - walking fast and giving the "sit" command, your dog will stay in position while you walk away quickly.

  • Starting out of sight commands - this means dog must stay in positions even if you are out of their sight and a distance away from you.

  • Starting "off leash heeling" and "off leash basic commands".

  • Back up - dogs must know how to back up if you need them to, particularly in tight quarters.

  • Stand/Stand-Stay - dog will stand and remain standing until released from position.

  • Sit from high excitement - we will build the dogs drive up and then give them a command one time. They have to be in command and IN control in less than 1 second.

  • Long Distance Recall - dog comes to you from 20-30 feet away, from a distraction (toy, stick, person, etc.)
