Dog Training Basics!
Welcome to stage one of Dog Training from SimplyDogAdvice.com where we will teach you dog training basics.
We want to show you the most straightforward, no nonsense approach to training the little guy to understand you and do as you ask.
All good things start off with a solid foundation and dog training is no different. You must be patient and learn through stages when it comes to dog training. It is impossible to skip to advanced stages of dog training as the dog learns to do things in stages. You cannot simply teach a dog to play dead. Instead, you teach the dog to to sit, to lie down, to rollover and to stay. Then when you put them all together and you teach him to do them all at once and you say play dead, the dog will sit, then lie down, then rollover and stay, hey presto, he just played dead.

The first five steps are the most important, which are:
