How would you rank the following basic obedience starting with the most important?
  • Sit
  • Stay
  • Come
  • Down
  • Heel
  • Recall
  • Place
What would you add to the list?

What would you take off the list?

Place
Down + stay
Recall
Heel
All the rest

Come and recall should basically be the same
To me being able to have your dog stay on a place in your home is immensely helpful. A solid down+stay is next for when outside of the house. Recall for important situations like other dogs or traffic or anything that could go wrong.

I also think a simple “spin” command is necessary. Teaches your dog rear end awareness.

My opinions.
