I use a cuppla more commands but they are probally unneccessary....when I let him out of truck on road trip to do his his business I say "GO! HURRY!" and he does.
At time I decide to take him out of house to go to keenel in afternoon, presuming he has not come and sat in front of me staring at me like I am a moron, I say "EAT!" and he races to door.
Oh yeah, the first command he ever learned was "NO!!!!!".....don't need to use that one much any more----he knows.....
Not that verble commands mean that much to him anymore after 10 years of hunting and riding in an airboat----he is harder of hearing than I am, but he knows what to do!
I point at his head, he sits and stays, give him a line and he will stop after a short while of not seeing dead waterfowl, sit and look back for hand signal.....pretty good dawg......even if he can't hear very much!
If someone he doesn't know well comes into house or just wants to pet him arrives, protect your crotch.....never broke him of being a crotch snifer.....
Oh, I don't use "DROP" or "RELEASE" when he brings something back to me, duck , goose, dove, quail, pheasnt,coot, snipe, bumper, I do a very slight tug and he lets go. Or I hold my hand out and he spits it at me if he knows it's dead.
Since he was force fetched , he does know what fetch means.....rarely used unless I am fuggin with him and knocking a bumper out his mouth.
Okay, that's finally all the commands I can think of that are used with Ol Abe....good luck with your dawg.....oh, I do use "QUIET" if he were to whine for some reason like seeing a duck on the water that slipped in on us.
