  • Sitting and waiting at a door takes practice and patience. Dogs are accustomed to bolting through doors. If you perform this exercise every time you approach a door, your dog will soon begin to sit automatically at all closed doors.
  • When practicing about turns, it is important to maintain a steady pace. Do not wait for your dog to catch-up to you. Praise your dog enthusiastically for being in the correct position. As dog begins to forge, handler slows for an about turn. Repeat the command “Heel” and turn to the right. Complete the 180 degree turn with a “Pop” if dog is out of position.
