Training your dog the sit command is usually the best place to start off with your obedience training, Its simple, relatively easy to teach and is on that dogs tend to retain quickly. The Sit command is good for many reasons it will increase your dogs confidence in his ability to understand you and is a great help when dealing with behavioral issues. The Sit command is also useful when your dog is meeting new people, preventing him from walking around and smelling them, or when people come over – stoppping him from darting outside or to the front door and jumping up on them. The sit command is one that you can start at anytime during your dog ownership (recommended at the beginning) just be sure that you and your do have a good relationship and that he is comfortable around you.

  1. stand in front of your Dog

  2. Have one of his favorite treats 
  3. Allow him to smell it
  4. Bring the tread over his head, he will smell the food and follow it with his nose, this action will cause him to sit or back-up but preferably sit. (also don’t hold too high above heat, this may cause you pet to jump)
  5. The second your dog sits, respond with the word “good” (or whatever word or phrase you will consistently use for praising your dogs actions) and give him the treat.
  6. Repeat 5-7 times.
  7. Once your dog learns the sit command gradually eliminate the treats, but continue to praise.
  8. Practice the “sit” command in different situations, locations and scenarios to help to improve the dog’s training. It’s vital that the dog will obey the “sit” command even if distractions are present.

A Few Notes to remember

Always have you treats or rewards ready, Never have to fumble to get them when required. This negatively affects your session.

Timing is important, ten minutes per session is enough. do not overwhelm you dog to the point where he is bored.

Dogs pick up on emotions, don’t be impatient or angry. Your dog wont want to train with you unless its fun.

avoid having to physically push your dog into a “sit” position. You don’t want him to associate this with the command
