Training Tips - Back Back

I have been working with a variety of clients and I will say that the Back Back command has been a very useful command to keep the dogs away from entering through a doorway.

I like to teach the Back Back command so that doggies understand that I do not want them to enter through a doorway at this time. I use the voice command "Back Back" and give a full hand signal with my fingers spread apart with my palm of my hand facing them. This signal tells them that I want them to wait until I return and not enter into the house/yard/front doorway etc. They very quickly understand that you would like them to stay in the location that they are currently in.

If you have any questions on these training tips, please send me an email at Marcia@happyhound.ca or give me a call at 613-253-5535.
