Obedience training ranges from very basic training, such as teaching the dog to reliably respond to basic commands such as "sit", "down", "come", and "stay", to high level competition where additional commands, accuracy and performance are scored and judged. |
Obedience training can be very useful in fulfilling most of the dog’s essential needs. It gives them something to direct their skills and actions thereby making them reliable and happy pets.
Most people just don’t know this, but one of the reasons why dogs behave inappropriately is because they don’t have the right direction to guide their actions. They are confused on how to respond appropriately with the environmental and social variables that they encounter.
There are dogs that do not have bad behaviors, and even if their owners are trying hard to teach them to obey some simple commands, these dogs are hardheaded. Chances are, many owners would just dump them to dog pounds because they are already fed up, and could no longer understand the behavior anymore.
These things could have been avoided if obedience training was used and implemented. Most obedience training in dogs is used to create a groundwork from which the dog and his master will learn how to effectively correspond to each other. There are many reasons for training dogs beyond the level required for basic companionship.
Basic commands Sit: The dog is in a sitting position. Down: A dog is typically down when its elbows (front feet) and hocks (rear legs) are touching the ground or floor. Come or Here: (referred to as the recall) "Call your dog" equals "come" or "here". Stay: The dog must remain in the position (sit, down, stand) and location under which the command was given until it is released by the handler. Heel: The dog's head or shoulder is parallel to the handler's leg on the left side of the handler. Beg: The dog is taught to literally beg for a given object in a fashion the owner desires (usually whining or standing). Shake: From a sitting position the dog will extend one of its paws and "shake hands" with the one who gave the command.
