Getting Started Week Fourteen - Move It!

A handy word to teach your dog is to "move" (out of your way) especially when your arms are full of groceries or other items.

Wrong Move: When your dog is resting in a doorway or hallway, you walk around the dog politely.

This gives your puppy the
wrong message that you rank lower than this canine in the household. Imagine being a Private in the military and not moving out of the way when a General approached a doorway. Lower ranking individuals defer to higher ranking individuals.

Right Move:  Walk forward with baby steps - shuffle your feet loudly - and tell the dog to "move" to allow your passage. Soon, the dog will learn what "move" means.
