Lanae working on dog aggression with Cocoa bean
The following commands are taught using both voice and hand signals:
– Means “walk with me” without pulling, sniffing the ground, jumping up or lagging behind. As the handler moves, the dog stays on the left side, head up and paying attention.
– When we stop moving, the dog is expected to sit automatically. She will sit quietly until we begin moving or give another command.
– On this command we begin about 20 feet from the dog and work up to a maximum distance of 100 feet. Your dog learns he is expected to remain where you put him until you return and release him.
– This command is extremely important for control, and we expect the dog to respond and obey regardless of distractions. Again, we begin by using short distances and work up to a hundred feet or more.
– This command asks the dog to assume a subordinate position in relation to the owner. More dominant canines may be rather stubborn with this command, but with the proper technique your dog will lay down without protest.
