1. Begin by sitting or kneeling
next to your puppy. Place one hand on the back of his rear legs above

puppy and hold a small piece of food in front of his nose. Say his name
followed by the command "Sit!"
Every puppy can learn this simple command.

Raise your hand slightly over his head and move it toward the back of
his body. As his eyes follow your hand, he will lift his head up and
drift into the sit position.
2. Once he is sitting, give him the tidbit and praise him. Use a tidbit
that is small and doesn't take a lot of chewing, you want the reward to
be quick and easy.
