Here’s a dog training tip that we’ve done with every dog we’ve ever owned. Of course, they know the sit. Well, as we prepare their dinner plates — or breakfast plates for that matter — they can get rather excited.
So at one point or another in the process, whoever is doing the feeding asks the dogs to sit.
LarryDog is almost 14 and sitting is getting a little harder for him on our tile floor, so we don’t usually ask him till just before the food is going on the floor.
I’m not sure if you can see LarryDog’s tongue here in this first photo, but it is sticking out a bit as he waits!
Dinner at last! As you might guess, with all this reinforcement, our dogs have great sits at any time.
