Bear in mind, too, that methods and commands (or, as I said before, requests, anyway, the words we use) will vary from school to school, and to some extent from dog to dog. Dogs all have their strengths and weaknesses. Where one dog may do very well remembering lots of words, another may not remember words very well but may be bang on with routes. Where one dog may have trouble keeping track of where you were and how to get back out, he may be great at navigating crowds. Dogs, like humans, are individuals, with individual strengths and weaknesses and skills and attitudes. They're all a little different, so please understand we're all speaking in fairly general terms here.
I have some light reading around here somewhere that might be helpful for you to know what goes on and how all of this works, again, while from particular perspectives, you can generalize somewhat.

>> Also Buddy they can find in or out. This is good when you go into a building or through a parking lot where you've never been before! Sometimes they can remember where you go a lot! For example my wife is at University hospital often. Holly knows the basic route and she usually knows whereever I go I will probably need the elevator, escalator or one of the many nurses stations along the route. Whatever room she is in, I only have to go there maybe twice and she basically remembers it! That's a big place!
