Dog Training 101: Releasing Your Dog

When training your dog you need a cue to let your dog know he is released from whatever you've asked him to do. For example, supposed you've asked your dog for a down and then asked him to stay. When you are ready to allow him to get up you need to let him know this. A good cue to use is the word "Okay!". Say it enthusiastically and pet your dog when you say it, and he will quickly learn that "Okay!" means he is free to get up and relax a bit. Use it with every command, so start when sitting your dog. Ask your dog to sit and after he executes the command, say "Okay!" and praise ("good dog!" and some petting).
