Some Basic Commands That You Need To Teach The Corgi Puppies

Heel Command

In general, this command is used to promote control while they are walking. To teach you corgi puppies this command:

  • Place the puppies on the leashes and let them walk in front of you.
  • While walking, suddenly call their names and say heel. Meanwhile, slap your thigh.
  • Then use their leashed to bring them to your side.

Once the puppies have caught up with the command, then you can encourage them to come to your side even if there are some distractions.

Sit Command

Besides heel, you need to train the puppies to sit in every situation. However, first, give the command once. If there is no response, then tug at the leash and repeat the command. Here is the process:

  • Take the puppies in a quiet room where nothing can distract them. Besides, take some treats.
  • Now hold a single treat in your hand above your puppies and say the command.
  • Then, using your other hand, squeeze the waist muscles until they are sitting.
  • Once they arrived at the sitting position, give them treats to praise them.

However, do this for around 5 to 6 times in a training session to get the best result.  Then after a few training seasons, gradually fade out the treats.
