Teach Your Dog Waitokay

O Bring your dog on her training collar and leash to the threshold of a doorway. As you approach the doorway, say WAIT.

2 If she stops, praise her. If she doesn't, say NO and tug her back to your side.

3 Reinstruct WAIT, saying OKAY and leading her forward only after she has complied.

4 Go to your front door and repeat steps 1-3, both going in and coming out.

Note: If you have a fenced-in environment, there may be times when you don't need to accompany your dog out the door. In that case, instruct WAIT, pause for two to fifteen seconds, and then release her to exit on her own with OKAY
