Ask a Trainer: Teach Your Dog to Sit in 60 Seconds

Featured in 7X7SF

Step 1: Practice using the verbal commands. 
Step 2: Say the command, lure the dog into position, and reward him or her.
Step 3: Lure the dog into several sits/downs before giving the treat.
Step 4: Show the dog your empty hand (to show no food lure). Say the command, use your hand signal if needed (hand should look the same as when you do have a treat) and reward when the dog does the sit or down without being shown the treat. 
Step 5: Reward sits and downs with little rewards every day.
