STEP 1. Move around and encourage the dog to follow you. When the dog sits, reward it without saying a word and change spots.

Make sure to count the number of times the behavior was offered. When you think the dog sits in front of you consistently, it's time to test the dog.

STEP 2. Repeat STEP 1, but this time you will say “SIT” when the dog sits. Don't forget to give the dog a treat.

STEP 3. Ask for sit and wait 10 seconds. Give the treat if the dog sits.
