There are 3 basic things your dog should learn through basic dog training. These are: sit, stay, and come. The first part of dog training is to teach your dog to sit. To start this dog training, you will first need some dog treats.

To prevent your dog get distracted, you need to do the training in a quiet environment. Tell your dog to sit repeatedly as you hold the dog treat just over their head. This way the dog has to look up and may sit on their own to reach the treat.

If not, gently push their rear down. Praise and reward your dog with a treat when he do the “sit” position. This kind of dog training works because the dog constantly hears “sit” and will learn to associate the command with sitting and receiving praise.
To teach your dog to saty is the next part of this training. This is often a difficult part of dog training. This kind of dog training is also incorporated with teaching your dog the command “come.” Sit your dog in an area with no directions.

Tell your dog to stay repeatedly as you back away. Start out by keeping eye contact with the dog. If the dog gets up, tell it “no” and start again.

This dog training will takes a while, remember this. You may need someone to sit with the dog to help reinforce the dog to stay the first few times.

Once you have made progress with this dog training, you then start by walking away with your back turned. At this point, dogs will often get up and follow you. Tell your dog “no” and start the dog training again by repeatedly telling your dog to stay as you walk away.

Once your dog has mastered this part, you can teach it to come. After your dog has stayed, tell it to “come.” Have a happy voice and pat your knee as you say “come.” Give your dog a reward treat when your dog respond to your command right away.

Always use praise instead of punishment with dog training. Dogs respond best to positive dog training, rather than negative. With all of this in mind, you should be able to teach your dog the 3 basis commands.

Follow all of this action and you should soon have a more obedient dog that is worth everyone’s praise!
