Teaching your dog to sit is one of the easiest and most basic commands you can teach. This training process will help establish relationship roles between dog and owner, as well as making it easier to teach your dog other commands.
1. Pick a training environment
Dogs have a limited attention span so it is important to be patient when training your dog. Pick one specific area to teach your dog to sit. This area should be comfortable and free from distractions if possible.
2. Use treats to train your dog
Capture your dogs attention with the treats. Stand directly in front of your dog and show the treat. Move the treat from his nose to behind the head. While doing this verbally tell your dog to sit and place his bottom on the ground. After your dog sits, praise him by giving him the treat.
