As we all know dogs are animals that live amongst society. So they are expected to uphold some kind of civilized behavior. A civilized dog will act in a manor that is apealing to both you and society. Unruly behavior is unexceptable and should be modified accordingly to change, redirect, and or condition to a more positive behavior.
Basic things a dog should do the first time on your commad are:
• Walking at your side left or right (called a heel)
• Sitting and laying down
• Staying where you tell them to
• Coming to you when called (called a recall)
• Going to kennel/crate/place/bed
• Leave it or out it
A civilized dog will also be properly socialized in many different environments with different smells, people, objects, and with dogs. Socialized dogs are civilized dogs that will not have excitement barks, lunging, growling, and display aggression. If a dog is leashed displaying these signs some more work needs to be done with that dogs.
These are just the basics of a civilized dog that will generally behave well in society. These commands go a long way and makes life easy for both you and the dog. Please feel free contact me for any advice or help with listed above.
