Training Tips - Teach Your Dog The Follow Command

The Follow command is an easy behavior to teach your dog. The purpose of this command is to get your dog's attention in an environment with distractions.

Here is how you teach your dog the Follow command:

  1. Begin by training in the house where there are fewer distractions
  2. Walk away when you have your dog's attention.
  3. As you walk away, tell them to "Follow" in a cheerful voice.
  4. After they follow you for a few steps, bend over with your side to the dog drawing them in closer and reward with a treat.
  5. Walk away as they are chewing and repeat the word "Follow.
  6. After about 6-8 steps wait for them to reach you and reward again.
  7. Repeat this process 4-5 times.
  8. Make sure that you end this training with a good ear massage!
  9. Once they have mastered the "Follow" command inside of the house, bring them into the yard or nearby parks and continue the command on a long lead.
  10. Soon your dog will be roaming off-leash!
