Begin training your pup to sit as early as eight weeks. Consistent repetition reinforces the command.
Dogs thrive on positive reinforcement. Reward sits with treats or praise to create a positive association.
Keep training sessions short, around 5-10 minutes, ensuring your furry friend stays engaged and doesn't lose interest.
Dogs sense frustration. Stay patient; it's a learning process for both of you. Celebrate small wins to keep motivation high.
Use a clear and consistent verbal cue for the sit command. Whether it's "sit" or any other term, stick with it.
Combine verbal cues with hand signals for a powerful communication combo. Dogs respond well to visual cues.
Gradually introduce distractions during training to ensure your dog can sit amidst various stimuli.
Practice the sit command in different locations. This helps your dog generalize the command and obey in any setting.
Ensure everyone in the household uses the same command and techniques, promoting uniformity in training.
Conclude each session with a positive experience, reinforcing the bond between you and your dog.
