Commands From Dog Obedience Training in Las Vegas That Could Save Your Dog’s Life

It’s widely known that obedience training produces well-behaved dogs that are pleasant to be around. If your dog has its share of behavioral issues, this alone is a great reason to obedience train. What you may not have realized, is that apart from becoming a well-behaved dog due to training, certain commands learned in training can actually keep your dog safe and possibly save its life. Here are a few safety-promoting commands your dog might learning in obedience training:

Lifesaver #1: Heel

While the command to “heel”, or walk next to the owner, seems common, it can keep your dog safe when out-and-about. Dog training in Las Vegas can help dogs stay close to their owners when they’re tempted to act out or chase other animals or people. Additionally, a dog that can heel, can stay out of traffic, preventing accidents and injuries, if they do try to run off after a someone or something (like a wayward ball).

Lifesaver #2: Drop It

If your dog is known to pick up dangerous items (or dangerous animals) in its mouth, the command to drop items can be a big help. There are plenty dangerous substances you don’t want your pooch to eat and this command can get your dog out of immediate danger, while you come and remove the problematic item to a less accessible place. Additionally, if your dog has ever attempted to eat bees, wasps, or other pests, the command to drop what’s in its mouth can keep him or her from getting stung, bit, or hurt.

Lifesaver #3: Emergency Recall 

An emergency recall command is a great multi-situational command that can get your dog out of danger fast. Emergency recall commands are different than just saying “come.” This is a separate command you use to make your dog drop whatever he or she is doing and get to you asap. Choose a special word for this command that is unique (like “now” or “hurry”) and use real treats that are big motivators for your dog (like deli meat or little bits of chicken or steak – with no bones, of course).
