In our last blog, our dog training equipment store discussed a few of the most important commands for every dog to know. The commands that we discussed in our previous blog include sit, stay, lie down, and come. If you have been dying to know about the rest of these commands, then you are in luck! The following is a list of the last few commands that all dogs need to be familiar with:
- Leave it- No one wants to have to worry about their dog stealing food off of their plate while they leave the table for a second. Teaching your dog how to "leave it" will not only keep your dog from stealing your perfectly cooked t-bone steak, but it will also keep your dog from eating things that are dangerous to him/her, like chocolate.
- Heel- Have you ever walked a dog that doesn't know how to heel? It can feel a lot more like the dog is walking you. Walking your dog is important for their health, and teaching your dog how to heel will make the experience a lot more enjoyable for both you and your dog.
- Focus- Teaching your dog how to focus on you (rather than the barking dog next door or anything else that is distracting) will help your dog to stay out of trouble.
- Drop it- Do you feel like your dog eats anything and everything that he or she finds? Teaching your dog how to "drop it" can help your dog to drop foods and other things that could hurt them.
Dogs like to know their place within the pack. One of the best ways to reinforce your place as the pack leader is by teaching your dog commands. Some commands or tricks can seem frivolous, while others are important for their safety and well-being. You may or may not see the value in teaching your [...]
Every service dog owner knows that anytime that you leave the house, your dog should have a service dog vest on. This vest prevents people from asking awkward questions, and it helps others to understand that they shouldn't pet your dog while they are hard at work. Because it is so important that your dog [...]
It is no secret that diabetes is a growing problem, not just in the US, but all over the world! Although treatment has been improved in the last few years, the rates at which people are being diagnosed just keeps on growing. In fact, upwards of 30,000 people are newly diagnosed with type 1 diabetes [...]
Going on a walk with your dog is one of the best things about being a pet owner, but when your dog isn't properly trained, it can make going for a walk incredibly frustrating. In one of our previous dog training equipment blogs, we talked about how to train your dog to heal, but this can [...]
If you have a service dog, then you probably rely on them for a wide variety of things every single day.

If you have had your service dog for any length of time, then you have probably already had the experience of others intrusively petting your dog or asking to pet your dog. Dogs are a big part of our society, and they have the reputation for being "man's best friend". So it is no wonder [...]
Lots of people assume that it is cruel to lock a dog up in a crate, but that is simply untrue. Think about where your dog likes to relax and sleep. They like to curl up in small, confined spaces, like under the bed, hidden in the corner or maybe even under the covers. Dogs [...]
