5 Essential Commands You Can Teach Your Dog:

Sit:
This is one of the easiest dog obedience commands to teach, so it’s a good one to start with.

Come:
This command can help keep a dog out of trouble, bringing him back to you if you lose grip on the leash or accidentally leave the front door open.

Down
This can be one of the more difficult commands in dog obedience training. Why? Because the position is a submissive posture. You can help by keeping training positive and relaxed, particularly with fearful or anxious dogs.

Stay
Before attempting this one, make sure your dog is an expert at the “Sit” command.

Leave it
This can help keep your dog safe when his curiosity gets the better of him, like if he smells something intriguing but possibly dangerous on the ground! The goal is to teach your pup that he gets something even better for ignoring the other item.

Once your dog consistently moves away from the first treat and gives you eye contact when you say the command, you’re ready to take it up a notch. this, use two different treats one that’s just all right and one that’s a particularly good smelling and tasty favorite for your pup.

That's not "how to train"... that's "what to train".
