If your dog is in your way, ask him to "Move, please."

Teaching
"Move, Please"

The words, "Move, please" let your dog know that he needs to change his position and move out of the way.

"Move, please" is a command that helps your dog understand what you want. It teaches your dog that you are the leader and in charge. You can use the word, "Move" instead, if you prefer.

You can teach your dog to move any time of the day. You do not need to plan a special time for this lesson.

You can teach your dog not to grab wherever you are.

  • When your dog is sitting or standing facing you, just walk into him while you are saying, "Move, please".
  • He will think you are going to step on him (but don't!) and will move out of the way.
  • Do this a few times each day and it won't take him long to learn it.
  • Practice "Move, please" in different places - outside, in doorways, at friends' houses. Show your friends and family how to do it so you dog moves for everyone.

 

If your dog is bigger than you, "Move, please" is a great thing for him to know. You won't have to push or pull him, or even put on his leash. Just say, "Move, please"!
