Teach Your Dog to Sit in 5 Steps

Start by getting your dog's attention with small tasty treats. Keep training sessions short and rewarding.

Use Treats

Hold a treat over your dog's nose and move it back between their ears to lure them into a sitting position. 

Lure Into Sit

Clearly say "sit" each time you lure your dog. This associates the word with the action.

Say "Sit"

Immediately reward with treats when your dog sits. This reinforces the behavior.

Reward w Treats

Gradually delay giving the treat until after you say "sit." Eventually phase out the lure.

Increase Delay 

Conduct multiple short, engaging training sessions per day for consistency.

Practice Sessions

Remain patient and persistent. Sitting on command may take days or weeks to master.

Stay Patient
