top 10 commands for a companion-only puppy

The polite combo (stay, sit, Gimme paw)
Come
Eye contact when saying name
Give it
Heel
Fetch
Go
Cross
Down
Shhhh (stop barking)


These are what I've taught tuco so far. And are pretty useful, I would highly recommend clicker training

the life saving ones are come, stay, and either being able to sit or down from a distance.

1. Sit
2. Down
3. Wait
4. Come
5. Stay
6. Out
7. Leave It
8. Off
9. Heel
10. Crate

I also like:

11. Shake
12. Circle Right
13. Twirl Left, both are good for spinal flexibility
14. Finish …sit in front and circle around the back to sit at my side. Just cool
15. Find it – we do nose work so that is her command to work
16. Bring it – for tossing bumpers and flying disc

I would recommend a "back off" command...I use it when I am cooking. Maggie likes to investigate the oven, so, to keep her from sticking her head in and getting burned, I give the back off command and she takes 4 steps backwards.

Great list so far.

I would add:

- Drop It
- Watch me

Come and Leave it, IMHO are the most important commands we can teach.

That's why I said sit or down at a distance. Same idea, but clearer to the dog exactly what to do
