There are two ways to teach your dog the meaning of “sit.”
The first technique is known as capture.
Holding some of your dog’s food or treats, stand before them.
Await for them to take a seat. Say “yes” after that, and give them a treat.
After encouraging them to rise, take a backward or sideways step and wait for them to sit.
Give them another treat as soon as they are comfortable.
After a few attempts, you may start saying “sit” as soon as they take a seat.
The next choice is tempting.
Holding a treat as bait, kneel in front of your dog.
Place the reward directly in front of the dog’s nose and raise it gradually above their head.
When their bottoms contact the ground, let them devour the reward.
Repeat using the food lure one or two more times, then take it away and use only your empty palm. After the puppy sits, treat them as usual.
Once they are familiar with the hand gesture for sitting, you may start saying “sit” just before you make the motion.
Never physically place your puppy in a sitting posture; some dogs may find this puzzling or unpleasant.
Sit is one of the first commands you’ll teach your dog. Since your dog is seated, they can’t be jumping up on you or rushing about the house. However, many dog owners have trouble getting their dogs to stay seated. Dogs frequently stand back up shortly after putting their behinds on the ground. Sometimes, dogs flat-out refuse to sit. Continue reading for advice and a cute technique if you’re having trouble getting your dog to sit correctly.
Learn to Sit with Your Dog
The most common method for teaching it to sit is through lure and reward training with a few mouthwatering goodies. A clicker may also be used to record the exact second your dog sits.
The actions listed here will entice a sitting position.
Show a goodie to your dog’s nose while they are standing.
Lift the reward slowly over their heads and toward their backs. Your dog should let its rear end fall to the ground while you elevate its head to pursue the goodie with its nose.
When your dog is seated, click your clicker, compliment them, and reward them with the goodie.
Throw another treat a short distance away or move away and call your dog over to get them to stand up again. Then repeat steps 1 through 3.
It’s appropriate to fade the lure after your dog can consistently follow the treat into a sitting position. Now lure the dog with an empty hand, and reward it with a goodie from the other hand when it sits. Your hand signal will be the motion of your free hand.
When your dog consistently sits for your empty hand, you may add the word “Sit” just before you make the gesture with your hand. Your dog should eventually react only to spoken cues.
Never press their back end down to avoid scaring and confusing your dog. Additionally, give a reward to your dog when he or she is sitting to reinforce that position. You will encourage your dog to get out of their sit as soon as their rear touches the ground if you wait until they are standing once more or even accidentally coax them back to a stand as you look for a treat.
You may also try luring your dog when they are lying down if they are having trouble understanding what you’re asking for. They should first be on the ground before being gradually shaped into a seat. Then, slowly elevate the goodie you are holding up to their nose until they lift their head. Click, give it a high five, or treat it. They hoist the treat a little higher when they raise their chest off the ground. Until they pull themselves into a sitting posture, they elevate the treat higher and higher with each repetition.
You can finally get a seat. That means you should click, praise, and treat your dog anytime they sit on their own. Your dog will eventually start to sit for you just for the reward of a treat. When it occurs, you may give your dog your verbal signal just as she is going to sit.
Make sitting a default action.
“Default behaviours” refer to the decisions a dog makes without being instructed by its owner or another handler.” For example, it would be lovely if your dog opted to sit rather than leap or run about. But how can you affect your dog’s judgement? The more you educate your dog to sit, the more probable it is that it will do so in the future. But to make sure it sticks, give your dog a treat anytime they decide to sit on their own.
Reward your dog as it approaches you and sits. Reward your dog if they remain seated while you restock their food bowl. So on. Your dog may need to be asked to sit in each case at first, but with enough practice, they will volunteer to do so independently. Please don’t consider it a given! Use anything you can to encourage and reward your dog, whether it’s a treat, a game of tug-of-war, or a ball throw. Your dog will eventually give a sit anytime they desire anything in the hopes of receiving a reward. It becomes their method of asking for something.
Sit Elegantly or Pretty
You may teach your dog the “Sit Pretty” trick once he or she has learned to sit. Your dog will then assume a begging stance by sitting on its haunches with its front paws up. It’s adorable beyond belief and simple to train. The actions listed below will teach your dog how to sit nicely:
1.Sit your dog down.
2. Once seated, place a goodie next to their nose and raise it gradually. Your dog ought to stand up to get the reward. Click or praise them, then reward them as soon as their front paws lift off the ground.
3. Repeat step 2 but raise the treat higher this time, so your dog has to stand even higher before you reward them. Build height steadily until your dog reaches the proper sit pretty position.
4. Once your dog sits up with the treat lure, fade the trick with an empty hand. That will become your hand signal. Then, continue to reward your dog when they sit pretty.
5. Once your dog reacts to the hand signal, precede it with a vocal cue like “Sit Pretty” or “Beg.” They need to be able to recognize the verbal cue alone eventually.
If your dog has trouble staying balanced, give them a spot to put their front paws on your wrist until they figure out how to support themselves. Your dog will quickly learn a cute trick in addition to good manners.
