The Let's Go Command
The command Let's Go has the following meanings:
- We are leaving here now
- Follow me immediately and without hesitation
- Join me in flight as we run for our lives
Let's Go is suitable for use in any situation in which you need your off-lead dog to instantly follow you as you head out for a new location.
If you make it a point to always give the command, Fido - Let's Go, just an instant before you leave one location for another, your dog will soon come to understand what the words mean, and he will quickly get in the habit of following you out without hesitation.
Just remember that speaking those words needs to be the last thing you do or say before you go out the door, and never give the Let's Go command and then delay your departure.
