Teaching a hold is often seen as an advanced obedience behavior, but in reality it’s very simple to teach should you want to try it. Teaching a hold is a great way to give your dog a job to do as well. Perhaps your hands are full when you’re trying to come in the door and you don’t have anyone around to hold something for you. Well, you could teach your dog! Many trainers teach their dogs to hold random objects like phones, wallets, keys and even clothes for laundry.
