Can your dog sit? How about stay? Come?
If your dog can do these three things then they have a great foundation! When they know these three things, everything else in training will follow.
The reason dog’s come is because they can’t think of a better place to be than to be with you! How sweet is that? Dog’s truly are a man's (and woman’s) best friend. It is important to teach your dog to sit down as soon as he comes over to you after he is called. His first instinct after being called, should be to come over and sit down.
I don’t know about you, but I don’t like when a dog comes up to me and jumps up. It can be scary, ruin clothes, and can potentially be harmful.
