Basic Dog Commands

The Martha Stewart Show, May 2010

When it comes to dogs, there's nothing better than living with a well-trained companion -- and that comes from teaching certain basic commands, says Purina Incredible Dog Team trainer Melissa Heeter.

Purebred, mix-breed, or mutt, all dogs can learn the "top five" with a bit of positive reinforcement, patience, and lots of practice.

1. Come here
2. Go away
3. Get back
4. Get off
5. Down

Watch the video to see Melissa demonstrating these commands.
