how to train a dog to sit

Training a dog to sit can seem like a daunting task, but can actually be quite easy with a few incentives. Simply put, dogs love food. When teaching your dog to sit, take a treat and break it up into multiple pieces so that you are not overfeeding your pet. Take a piece of the treat and raise it directly above the dogs head so that he/she has to look up at it while firmly repeating “Sit!”. If the dog doesn’t sit from looking at the treat, keep attempting to move it around above him/her until they do so. This will train your dog to recognize the audible “Sit” command and realize that there is a reward for sitting. Best of luck in training your dog!
