Teaching your pup basic commands when he is young makes advanced training much easier—many intermediate commands require your dog to perform one or more basic commands as a starting point. These advanced dog-training tips not only build on the basics but can also help the two of you face real-life circumstances more confidently and effectively:
The usefulness of the stand command may not seem obvious at first. After all, dogs generally spend a lot of time on all fours, so why would they need to be asked to do so?
The stand cue comes in handy if you want your dog to pose for a picture or if you plan to show him in conformation, to begin teaching him to stack (the special standing pose that every show dog must strike).
How to Teach Your Dog to Stand
To teach your dog to stand on cue, do the following:
Have your dog sit.
Hold a treat at nose level about 6 inches away from his face.
Say “Stand.” As you say the word, move the treat away from your dog’s face, being sure to keep the treat at nose level. As you move the treat away, your dog will stand in order to move forward and follow the treat.
As soon as your dog is on all fours, mark the behavior with the word “yes!” and treat.
Repeat this sequence until your dog is performing this behavior consistently and reliably.
At this point, you can begin cutting back on treats. However, if you and your dog are in a real-life situation that lends itself to using this cue, don’t hesitate to use treats. For many dogs, such situations are too distracting to deal with unless they have a tasty incentive to do so!
The place command requires your dog to take himself to a designated area when asked to and to remain there until released. This cue is incredibly useful in a variety of situations—particularly those involving guests in your home. That said, any time you don’t want your dog to be underfoot, either for the sake of your convenience or his safety, knowing that he will go to his place when asked will make life easier for both of you. Interestingly, many dogs learn this cue (or a variation) without their owners making a conscious effort to teach it to them.
But if your dog hasn’t learned a similar cue on his own, it’s never too late to teach him. (Note: He should know the down and the stay before you begin teaching this cue.)
How to Teach Your Dog to Place
Here’s what to do:
Leash your dog.
Say “place” (or “bed,” or “nighty-night,” or any other word or words, as long as you use those same words consistently) and lead your dog to the place where you want him to go.
Say “Yes!” and treat.
Repeat until he appears to understand what you mean when you give him the cue. At this point, remove the leash and give the cue. If he responds, say “Yes!” and treat. If he doesn’t, reattach the leash and lead him to the place where you want him to go.
Once your dog can take himself to his place on cue, ask him to lie down and stay. Have him remain in the down position for about 15 seconds. Then say “Yes!”, treat, and give him his release cue, “Okay.”
Repeat until your dog can remain in his place for about three minutes.
