Training Your Dog to Sit on Command


Training your dog to sit on command gives you a way to get your dog under control quickly. And the time spent in this obedience training provide a chance to bond with your dog. Get down to your dog’s level and hold a food treat in front of his nose to get his attention. Raise the treat up and over your dog’s head so he has to lower his rear end to continue following it. Say your dog’s name followed by the SIT command. As soon as his rear end touches the floor, give him the treat and lots of praise. Practice this often and delay providing the treat so your dog is actually sitting. Gradually reduce and then eliminate the treats so your dog obeys you with the command and praise alone. Be patient and never yell at your dog or punish him while he is learning. For more information, contact your veterinarians Marietta, GA.
