Step 1: Lure the sit


With your dog in a standing position, bring a treat from their nose slowly moving the treat slightly upwards and back towards their tail.

Keep the treat lure close to your dog’s nose—if you move your hand up too quickly or too far away from their mouth, they may jump up, back up, or give up.

As soon as your dog’s hindquarters hit the ground, say “yes!” (or click) and release the treat for them to eat while they are still in the seated position. 

You can toss a treat away to reset. 

Repeat 4 more times for a total of 5 repetitions.
