The most important command to teach your dog is it's name and come here. Believe it or not most dog owners never take the time to make sure their dogs look at them when they call their name. Practice this skill with your dog and give it a treat when they look at you. "Come here" is much more difficult to teach but a very important command. Train them until they do it without question and add a visual clue liking patting your thigh at the same time while yelling come here. Now that your dog knows it's name and come here you can avoid most dangerous situations in case they slip out of your home or off leash on a walk. Even at a dog park or beach in San Diego situations can easily happen where you need your dog to come over to you immediately.
