For Teeny and Blue pet dog commands in English should be followed: sit, down, shake, circus dog, etc. Blue is a therapy dog so he needs to be able to do things when asked by the kids, and both of my dogs are brought out in public regularly and we work to dispell any bully breed fears, and who can be afraid of Teeny when she's doing "circus dog" for a 5 year old kid?

For me that is a whole other level of training that involves having a bond with a dog. I don't want anyone else being able to take my dog out on the field and compete with them. Tell my dog to au pied and see my eyes get red. Just ask those I train with, LOL!!
