Training Your Dog to Sit on Command
Training your dog to sit on command gives you a way to get him under control quickly if needed and the training process is a good way to facilitate bonding. Train your dog when he is alert but not overly excited. Get down to your dog’s level and hold a food treat in front of his nose to get his attention. Next
raise the treat up and over your dog’s head so he needs to lower his rear end to continue following it. Say the SIT command and your dog’s name. Give him the treat and lots of praise as soon as his rear end touches the floor. As you practice and your dog becomes more reliable, extend the time between the touch down and giving him the treat. Gradually reduce and then eliminate the treats so your dog will obey the SIT command for your praise alone.
