I have trained them to sit before they are released no matter what door they are at, even the car doors. Molly is really good but Abby needs to be reminded & brought back in sometimes. I guess I worry about this more since we travel with them & I don't want them bolting out any door.
Molly is so patient...Abby always looks back at me if I make them wait awhile before releasing them.
Sorry this pic is so dark.
Good girls!! ;D
The boys are supposed to wait at the door, but they have to be reminded. They always wait for car doors.

Gone ahead, but forever in my heart:
Crash, Pit Bull x Rottweiler x Golden Retriever
Yup Abby and Molly are supposed to wait at doors as well. Abby is the one that needs reminding too! Molly just waits patiently until she gets the "ok"
~Abby, Molly, and Penny (the honorary lab)
I never really trained Nellie to wait at the door but she's pretty good about standing or sitting until I say okay. I do insist that she wait for me to go down the staircase since I'm afraid of being knocked over.
I tell Boo, "woah," then "OK." He's pretty good as long as I tell him to woah.
Looks like Abby and Molly got the hang of it. Pretty girls!

Cheddar always sits by the door before goin, gets permission and goes. Also does it when we go inside, didnt train him for that, but figured he assumed he has to sit before going through any door, therefore I don't stop him
I, like you, travel with him alot and we stay @ hotels, I just dont want him bolting down the hallway to see teh people walking down it or just plain old running away chasing some rabbit or squirrel (which he caught and ate 2 of today - squirrels that is yuck)
Abby, "Can we go now Mom?? Huh? Huh? Can we?? Please?"
Cute pic, Georgie!!
Henry needs reminding, but he's pretty good. He knows to wait when I open the house doors and the car door.
Absolutely. Buddy knows he better not go out any door until I release him to go out.
Eiderdowns That's My Buddy

What good girls you have! Jake was trained to wait at the door of the house and the car. For some dumb reason I never worked with Jazzy and she bolts out the door. Guess I better start working with her.
Yes, although Remington needs to be reminded
Your girls are very good girls!!!
