Short little display of using the dogs name as a release command or cue for them to come in the house. They are taught that they are not allowed to rush in the door just because it is opened. The same drill is used at feeding time alternating who gets to go first and how long they have to wait to enter or be released to eat. Sets a good ground work for manners. Same drill can be used for bolting out of doors. By creating a routine for them to follow we cut down on the possibility that they will bolt out the front door and run down the street.
