When we started with the Obedience Training, the first thing our trainer made all of us do, was the Crate Games. First impulse control and that helped a LOT with pretty much anything we do right now. So the foundation is impulse control which also helps to get the dogs motivation up and flashy.
From there we went to sit and down, now we are doing the re-call and heeling. It's all about shaping and attention to detail and precision, however, the big picture, I'd say is impulse control, that's the foundation. At the very beginning I couldn't see that and I was like "WTH do we need that for, but now I can tell the difference, it does make a huge difference in the training and every day world.
