Browse Website | Advanced Obedience

Obedience classes are the foundation for all specialty training and usually consists of sit, down, heel, come, and stay with major distractions. The purpose of advanced obedience is for the handler to have control of his or her dog while performing off-leash work. Advanced obedience is for those who have successfully mastered basic obedience training with their dog and should be trained with a consistent schedule, each week building on the prior's activities. Below you will find some common basic and advanced commands. The specific command word is not important, but consistency in usage is. There are certain commands that are accepted as standard and commonly used. Advanced obedience is not the amount of commands your dog knows, but emphasis on building increased control of off-leash work, hand signals, and agility training.

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.

  • Heel
    The dog's head or shoulder is parallel to the handler's leg on the left side of the handler.

  • Come or Here
    (referred to as the recall) Call your dog means "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.

Advanced Commands

  • Stop
    A dog that will simply stop whatever it is doing and lie down on command no matter how far it is from its keeper is a dog that can be taken anywhere.

  • Back Up
    Keepers of large dogs or dogs with a reputation for aggressiveness can make strangers more comfortable by teaching the dog to back up on command.

  • Growl
    The inverse of backing up. Some owners teach non-aggressive dogs to growl on a subtle command – not the word growl, usually a small hand gesture – as a way of letting strangers know that you and your dog value being left alone.

  • Shake
    Directs the dog to shake whole body. Generally used after bathing or swimming to prevent dog from soaking owner.

  • Shake Hands or Paw
    Directs dog to lift paw and place it in the hand of the owner as if shaking hands.

  • Steady
    Keep near by. The dog can walk free, but not dash off.

  • Stand
    Dog stands still. Useful for grooming. Many dogs are groomed frequently and need to stand quietly during the process.

  • Go To Bed, Kennel, or Get In
    Directs the dog to go to its bed or its crate and to remain there until released. The dog has freedom of movement in that location to stand up, turn around, or lie down, unlike when placed in a Stay. Useful to keep a dog out from underfoot and safe in a busy or complicated situation.

  • Drop or Drop It
    Dogs pick up all sorts of things, some of which they shouldn't have. A dog that drops anything on command, no matter how attractive (and "attractive" to a dog can be "rotten and smelly" to a human), is a dog under control that the owner can prevent from eating dangerous items or from destroying valued personal property.

  • Leave It
    An adjunct to "Drop", directing the dog to not touch an item. Also useful before the dog has picked anything up. "Leave it" is also used in conjunction with "Take it".

  • Take It
    The dog leaves a desired object, such as a toy or treat, untouched until given this command. Alternatively, the dog takes and holds an object which it has no interest in. This can protect an owner's, visitor's, or child's fingers.

  • Give
    The dog has an object in its mouth and "gives" it to its owner by releasing the object into the owner's hand. Object of choice in training is usually a light-weight dumbbell or a glove. This is useful for when your dog has one of your belongings and you want it back before the dog hides it or chews it up.

  • Speak
    A dog, when taught this command, will bark once (or more) when told to do so.

  • Roll Over
    When taught this command a dog will lie down, roll over, and stand back up.

  • Attack
    A dog will attack something (or someone) when told to do so. Common commands are either "Attack" or "Sic'em".

  • Fetch
    A dog will retrieve a thrown object (usually a ball or a stick) and bring it back to the one who threw it.

  • Place
    The dog is trained to go to a certain place and stay there until released, usually a place in the house selected by owner.

  • With Me
    Used when walking your dog to keep them at your side and with your pace.
