Dog Tricks Lesson #1: Sit

Teaching your furry buddy to ‘sit’ is one of the easiest tricks that he can learn. Below are some quick and easy steps that you can follow. 

TIP: Keep in mind that you’ll need to keep your training session short, just about five to 10 minutes a day so your furry pal won’t get frustrated. And don’t forget to keep a positive attitude throughout.

Difficulty level: Easy 

Prerequisite commands: None 

Items needed: Clicker, Awesome Pawsome™ treats 

  1. Hold an Awesome Pawsomeall-natural pet treat close to your dog’s nose and slowly move your hand up.
  2. As soon as he follows the treat and his bottom touches the floor, use the clicker, say Sit, and give him the treat.
  3. Repeat Step 2 for a few times every day until your dog masters the trick.
  4. Check if he recalls the command word. Say Sit and if he sits, give him a treat. If not, go back to Step 3.

NOTE: Never physically push your dog down to sit as this can confuse or scare him.
