It’s the most basic obedience command you can think of, even the most novice dog owners will try to teach sit, but are you really getting the maximum use out of this minimal command? Other than making it appear you have control of your dog what use do you have for the “sit” command?
Let’s look at the top ten uses for the “Sit” command:
- Sit at the door when guests enter the house (no jumping!)
- Sit to have leash and collar put on for a walk
- Sit when the front door opens (no running out!)
- Sit while food is being served
- Sit when you open the car door to prevent the dog going into traffic
- Sit at sidewalks and curbs while on a walk
- Sit and look at you instead of barking at other dogs on a walk (prevent leash reactivity)
- Sit to clip nails
- Sit before throwing toys, repeat for each toss
- Sit as the base for learning tricks in the future (high five, shake, beg, say your prayers, etc.)
Sit is just one of the basic commands that you’ll learn in our level one basic obedience class, other commands you’ll learn include “stay, wait, leave it, drop it, come” as well as loose leash walking and good manners.
The next level one class begins Wednesday, January 8th at 7:15pm to 8:15pm. The classes are 6 weeks long and the total cost is $150. To reserve your spot or learn more about our training options call us at Camp 586-445-9663 or email us firstname.lastname@example.org.
