Dog Training Tips: The Sit — 2 Comments

  1. Great tip on giving treats out of the palm of your hand – no wonder my dog has been so nippy when I give him a treat! Thanks for pointing out that great piece of advice.

  2. Don’t worry if your makes a “mistake”. Remember, dogs don’t know English and they certainly can’t read our mind. If he doesn’t do what you want, you don’t have to ignore them by turning around – this can a be a form of punishment. We don’t want to punish a dog for not doing a behavior he has not learned yet. I believe appropriate (non-physical) punishment has its time, but certainly not in the learning stages.

    Also remember that you do not want to say the cue yet – that comes later, after the behavior is more reliable. Just remember: the behavior you name is the behavior you get!
