How to Teach Your Dog to Sit | Dog Training

How To Train Your Dog To Sit Sit is a basic manors foundation behavior
that pretty much everyone wants their dog to know. And the good news is, it’s easy to train. If you follow a few easy steps. First of course you need your dog and some
yummy treats, something that they like so that you can reward them
as they get the behavior correct. Take some nice treats in your hand, have your
dog in a standing position and just lure your dog into the sit position. (good)! When they get into the sit position you’re
going to want to tell them using a very crisp and clear marker word such as
‘good’ that they did the behavior correctly and they are going to get rewarded
for it. You want to do a lot of repetition (good)! so it’s easy for your dog. The movement is quite small it’s just from the nose up over the head (good)!
but hits the ground. You tell your dog they did a good job and then you give
them a treat. Step two is you’re going to have a treat in
both hands, you’re going to lure (good)! with the food in your hand but you’re
going to deliver the treat from your other hand. This way you can get off of having to move
your dog through space with food sooner than later (good)! The food that’s in your hand becomes irrelevant. Then you’re ready to just move your hand up
and back through space to get your dog into position. Then lets make sure we put the food away. So that we make sure our dogs will pay attention
to us and do this on a visual cue without having to follow a cookie
through space. Palm up (good)! So I waited for him to do the correct behavior
which was the sit. I didn’t want his paws coming up. So if you see something you don’t like just
don’t say ‘good’ and try again. Once you would bet your paycheck that your
dog will move into the seated position when you give him a visual
(good)! cue, you’re ready to put the verbal on. Don’t rush that. Make sure that you’re ready to bet your paycheck. And then you’re going to say the word and then follow
it with a definition. Which is your visual cue “”sit, good””. If he had not sat I would have simply given
him the visual cur. I don’t want to say sit, sit, sit. I want him to do it the first time. So I’ll get him back into a standing position
(sit, good)! With lots of repetition eventually your dog will simply
sit when they hear the word. And that’s how to train a sit.

    hELP? I've been teaching this to my dog and she's really good, in a day and half she already knew the trick but now she only does it when i give her a treat. When i take the bag of treats she immediately sits before i tell her to so i can give her one and won't listen to me if i don't have a treat for her. What do i do?

  26. Anny Rosario says:

    This didn't work for me. By the time we got to the third step my dachsund knew that after the movement on the leash, a treat was imminent, so he sits without me giving the hand signal- not listening to me in a different way. Smart to anticipate but useles to me when I'm trying to do train him to heed me. so then I have to walk him until he's remains standing, then I can give the hand signal. I'll try another video. thanks anyway.

  27. bella says:

    Nice video this video helped me and my dog alot!

  28. Lana Maizel says:

    My dog (his name is Cali) is very, VERY timid. He is extremely close to my mom & not anyone else. Whenever I hold the treat from his nose & up to his head he gets scared and runs away without taking the treat. My mom has tried and the same result happens with her. Any ideas? (He's 2 years old)

  29. Blind says:

    I have a husky puppie

  30. LPS KitKat says:

    Wow my dog is about a year old now, still small but he learned this very quickly! I'm really surprised because he doesn't listen very well. I guess he really likes his treats! (i know this is probably bad but..) We reward him when he has successful trips to the bathroom so he will continue the behavior. I will now ask him to sit before he's handed the treat? Is that a good idea?

  43. Fendy Halim says:

  44. Chantal Phillips says:

    I adopted a yorkie poodle mix. He lays down instead of sitting. He is intelligent and learnt quickly to "get ball" and "drop it" Since he has mastered the down command now, I put the treat in front of his nose and raise it above his head and say "sit" but he still lays down. Any suggestions for getting him to sit?

  48. ItzzSamyy! says:

    This is kinda fake because the dog already knows how to sit so it would be better if she used a dog that can't sit yet.

  92. Linda Martin says:

    This animal looks already trained. Did you practice with the dog beforehand? How about trying it with a an adult street dog? I rescue street dogs and while they learn, I usually need to start with then close to a wall so they cannot back up and away.
