WAIT and OKAY

These two directions, when used together, tell your dog to look to you for permission and assurance before crossing thresholds and streets.

1 Place your dog on a leash and position her at your side. Hold her back, repeating WAIT until she relaxes. (If this process takes more time than you have, consider buying a training collar.)

2 When she does relax, say OKAY and proceed.

The direction to WAIT is about impulse control and focus. When practicing this command, try it in various situations, from food control to stairs, doors, and curbs.
