Wolfie Training

It’s very important how you give a  command for a dog.

Attract your dog attention by speaking its name, and then give your command with hand signals.

Speak in a deep tone of voice – except for the come command when you should use a high –pitched voice.

Avoid repeating a command – it will confuse your dog.

Use your body language:

  • Welcoming-smile, use a friendly and exiting tone of voice, open your arms to receive the dog.
  • Stern – Look angry and use a deep tone of voice
