I know it can be very overwhelming to make your dog sit for most pet owners. For example you need to do is to get your puppy to associate the act of sitting with the commands. I would say to do this, simply hang around with your dog and when he sits give the “sit” command. I know getting to your dogs level will allow you to present the reward so get on the floor.
Best of all bring the treat up over the dogs head. I know they will smell the food and follow it with there nose. Therefore this action will cause him to sit (or backup, but obviously we are hoping for the sitting action). I know the key to the training is to present the reward at the exact moment it sits.
For instance but you must also give the command at that moment so they associates command with action. For this reason so as the puppy sits, say “sit” and then immediately give them the treats. Best of all giving the pet praise – show joy in your voice and they will really respond. I would repeat three to five times at each session but no more than that. For example training should be fun and not a boring chore so don’t overdo it in one sitting. Above all else you may have several sessions throughout the day.
Therefore you spend the time to train your puppy dog, you get much more than just a puppy that does some tricks. Best of all they love to do things with you. I know it learns to listen when you say it’s name. Besides it gets used to being with you and doing things on your initiative. I know it can be overwhelming to make your pet sit.
