What Are the Four Most Important Words to a Dog?

There are other words that, as time goes on, you will use and your SM will learn to understand and obey, but the four most important ones are the four basic commands of yard training.

"WHOA"     -
A dog that stops in his tracks when you say "Whoa!" cannot get into trouble.
"NO!"           - To stop any type of misbehavior.
"HERE!"      -

To bring your SM in to you. You can use "Come!" or his name, or use either command and his name.

"HEEL!"      -   To have your SM walk quietly and sedately at your side.
