Default How do I train 'front'?

I am having trouble with this. I've been luring him from any direction to sit in front of me and then "yes! good front!" and treat.

My problem is I dont think he really understands what I want though. How do you all train this? I tried looking for videos.

Also, how do you get a dog to sit really close to you in front? I have seen some competitions where the dog sits up close facing the handler, almost touching. Mine sits way back from me, if I move in closer he just backs up... I tired luring him in, but perhaps because of the long body, when he sits he is again way back from me.
