Basic training

What in your opinion is basic training?
My dogs seem to be good at some stuff and rubbish at others.
They both know sit, Myfanwy is excellent at wait she will sit for ages and not take the treat till you say Good Girl, they are rubbish at stay. Indy is better at the word NO and if you say it he stops what he is doing, Myfanwy ignores me.

For me basic training is all the commands a dog should know, just for comfort and safety too. So that means sit, stay, drop, bed, coming to you when called, being quiet and being able to walk on a loose lead.
There are variations to this (like Biscuit knows stop and wait for when we are crossing a road on a walk etc.) but the rest I class as tricks. so they are rollover, high five, shake, etc. anything cute that is there to show how clever your dog is but apart from being cute doesn't have a real purpose!

I am with Carmen on the basic training. These are the most important things to learn first.

All dogs learn at a different pace of course.

You could always take them to a trainer... Just be careful and check them out well... We have a trainer here locally that uses cattle prods and horse whips. (That's a well known rumor and I know that dogs that go to be trained there come out scared of loud noises and cower down when you pat their backends.) It is better to have a trainer train you to train the dog, so you know what's going on at all times.

Oh I am trying hard.
Myfanwy is doing better than Indy I have to say.
She has learned a lot faster.
I have only had her 2 weeks and she has learnt sit, wait, stay, NO and hardly goes toilet in the house now.
I think the only thing that is missing is when they start play fighting they just block me out but I have started putting leashes on them and calming them down.
I am getting there
