Companion dog training

Companion dog training:

  • HERE -
  • SIT -
  • DOWN -
  • HEEL -
  • STAY -
  • WAIT -
  • CLOSE -
  • LEG -
  • BACK (walking backwards) -
  • LEAVE IT (ceasing objects or food) -
  • CHEERS (giving right or left paw) -
  • NO (interdiction command)

In order to become a good companion in the everyday life, our dog needs to learn a series of commands that reflect "good manners". Companion dog training is useful because it keeps the dog under control, teaches it to obey its owners orders.

With companion training the dog learns to do: command "HERE", "SIT" position, "DOWN", "STAY" (while standing), leash walking. The "WAIT" command in sitting position, laying down and standing, the useful "NO" command. Also there are additional commands like: "SPEAK", "FETCH", "PLAY DEAD" (very useful when going to the vet), jumping over different obstacles, walking backwards, etc.

Very important for this type of training is the involvement of the dog's owner. Personally, I think that the best method is that the owner works directly with the dog, learning along the way with it. The advantage of this method is that the "power" connection is made directly between the dog and the owner. In this way we avoid situations like the dog not responding to the owners command but to the trainers

The period of time reserved for this type of training may vary depending on the dog, its race particularities, the way its owner involves himself/herself.

There is a faze when the dog needs to be taken in a place without distractions in order to learn the commands. But this doesn’t take long, different factors of distraction being inserted. I usually work for a period of 3 months in order to go through all the steps of companion dog training, including off leash training. In some cases, if the dog has issues such as lack of socialization, fear, aggression that need correcting the period of training extends.
