Teach your dog how to sit in 6 SIMPLE steps

Teaching your dog how to sit is a basic and essential command that every dog should know. Not
only is it easy to teach, but it also serves as a foundation for more advanced training in the
future. In this blog post, we will discuss the steps to take in order to teach your dog how to sit.
1. Start with a treat in hand. Hold the treat in front of your dog’s nose and slowly move it
up and back, towards the top of their head. As the dog’s head follows the treat, their
hind end will naturally lower to the ground.

2. As soon as their hind end touches the ground, say “sit” in a clear and firm tone. Give
them the treat and praise them for following the command.

3. Repeat this process several times a day, gradually decreasing the amount of movement
required to get your dog to sit. Eventually, you should be able to give the command “sit”
without having to use the treat.

4. Once your dog is consistently following the command, it’s time to add a hand signal. Use
a downward pointing finger to indicate “sit” and give the verbal command at the same

different rates and it may take some time for your dog to fully understand the
command. But with patience and consistency, your dog will soon be sitting on command

In conclusion, Teaching your dog to sit is a simple and easy command that will help you and
your dog communicate better. With patience and consistency, your dog will soon be sitting on
command in no time! Remember to always reward your dog with praise and treats when they
do well, and never use physical force or punishment when training your dog.
