We’re going to show you how to have your dog sit and wait. This is a great exercise to use at doorways, to ensure the dog is not darting outside. It also is nice to keep them polite when company comes to the door, or any time that you just need to step away, and you want the dog to remain behind. We’re going to start with the sit position, sit; see if she’ll do it on command. Again, this is the placement. Sadie, wait. When I dip this hand command, it’s just like having a stop to the dog’s nose. Then I’m going to step off on my right foot, right in front of the dog, stepping away, and then returning to the dog. That’s the whole command. Once I walk, she can get up. She did get up a little early, so I’m going to place her back into the sit. Wait; stepping in front, stepping back, and then she can go forward.It’s a great way to ensure that your dog is not tripping you at the door, or that they are staying safe in situations where they may not be comfortable. So, practice that whenever you go out the doorway. .
