Excuse Me

Teach your dog to respect your space: use a polite but crisply stated EXCUSE ME anytime she blocks your path or leans against you. If you wouldn't let a family member crowd you, don't let your dog. If she resists moving gently move her aside with your knee or foot.

Note: The directions LET'S GO and EXCUSE ME passively communicate your team captain status. Each command demands recognition and respect, but do it in a subtle, nonconfrontational manner.
