Commands That Your Dog Can Learn
There are certain commands that you should teach your dog are as follows:
Sit: Share with your dog something to eat whilst keeping your hand up in the air and ask him to sit.
Down: Do the same with this command. Give your dog something to eat and keep your hand downwards towards the ground so that your dog can adjust to that position automatically and then command him to stay down.
Stay: Once your dog has learned the command of sitting, now make him learn to stay in that position until you ask him otherwise.
Come: For this command, you can ask your dog to come to you while keeping his leash in your hand. If he complies then give him some reward.
