How to Teach Your Dog to Sit

Are you trying to teach your dog new tricks? It may be easier if your dog is young because he’s still in the learning phase and eager to learn and eager to please. But don’t be discouraged if you have an older dog. Contrary to the popular phrase you can teach an old dog new tricks especially if you use a reward system. To start with any dog, demonstrate what you want them to do by physically placing a little pressure on their backend and until they sit down. Make sure you say “sit” at the same time. You may want to point to the backend as well. Give the dog a treat and praise them right away. Continue to point and use voice commands and rewards until the dog can sit on command alone. Talk with your vet Folsom, CA for more tips on how to train your dog.
