Teach Your Dog To Sit – in about 3 minutes

In three minutes and a bit more is the explanation of how to teach your dog, whether it’s one of your poodles, or a labrador retriever,  to sit according to our lesson. What do you need for this to happen? Let me tell you:  A leash, biscuits and a positive spirit; the steps in which the teaching takes place are three.

“Sitting” is the command, “Bravo!” is the positive reinforcement and “Well done” to make the task fun.

Advice: Do this exercise before giving him the reward, so the dog will have the most desire to earn the biscuits.

An great way to teach the dog to sit down right away is to put the biscuit in front of his nose and then raise it over his head (but not too high), this will force the dog to sit; when he drops his head back and sits then you should give him the prize / biscuit, forgetting to say “Good” and to make him cuddle and invite him to move freely for a while.

Remember to keep a positive attitude in any case; your dog does not ask you to settle for it and you do not have to punish him if he does not succeed. When the command is understood, start preparing cookies intermittently, ie not every time you sit down, but keep compliments on it.

The goal is achieved when the dog obeys your voice command without worrying about any distraction.
