Your dog understanding the basic commands such as Sit, Stay, Wait, Come, Leave It and following through are essential on the trails for their safety and yours. In addition to the basic commands, we naturally picked up some commands on the trails that became part of our daily life. For example, when Xena hears Look, she looks toward where I point (most of the time 🙂 ) and she anticipates an action when I ask Ready? and resumes hiking/walking from a break.
What command(s) do you find most useful when you are hiking with your dog?
