Puppy Training ~ Lesson 3

Down your dog
From the neutral position, while holding the leash in your right
hand, “Down” your dog using your left hand to signal. DO NOT HOLD
LEASH NEAR COLLAR AND PULL. Gently tug on the leash if needed.
Have the dog hold this position for about one minute.

Stand your dog
From the neutral position, while holding the leash in your right
hand, command your dog to “Stand”. As the dog rises, pet his
underbelly and give him the “Stay” command. Pivot in front of him
and stay close. Hold this position for 30 seconds to one minute.

Should the dog start to sit, lift him gently from his underbelly
as you give the “Stand and Stay” commands. You may need to
reposition the dog in the neutral position. Pet his tummy. Give
the stay signal and pivot in front. Stay close.

Recall
From the neutral position, have your dog “Stay” as you pivot out
to the end of the leash. Have the dog hold this position for 30
seconds to one minute. Command the dog to “Come” as you move
quickly backward for ten steps while reeling in the leash. The dog
should come to a halt in front of you and sit. Praise. *DogSkool
