"find it". i hide things and send him to "find it".
"back up". place the dog next to the wall and
teach him to "back up" on command.
teach him not to counter surf. i use to place food
on the edge of the counter. when he went for it
a simple "no" or "leave it" worked. then i started
placing food on the edge of the table, on the seat
of a chair and then on the floor. you want to work
your way to leaving the food available and leaving
teach him "go to your crate" or "go to your bed".
you want to be able to give this command from
anywhere in your house.
teach him not to door dash. if the door is propped open
he's not suppose to exit.
i taught my dog to retrieve the mail from the mailman.
the mailman pulls up, beeps his horn (sometimes).
i open the door and the dogs goes down the driveway
and the mailman hands him the mail.
teach him to jump on the bed or sofa for "cuddle time"
or just to be near you.
