Step 2: Sit Command
2. Use the treat to guide your dog into position by slowly moving the treat straight back over the dog's head and towards the tail. Your dog should point his nose up and his rear should drop towards the ground.
3. As the dog moved into the sit position firmly say 'Sit' and make the hand signal shown in Picture 2.
4. As soon as the dog moves into position reward your dog with a treat and some praise, like saying, 'Good sit!'
5. If your dog is having trouble understanding, you can help guide them with a gentle push. Place two fingers on his hips and gently push his rear towards the ground while firmly saying 'Sit'.
