Re: The different types of Sit
I do. I find that my girls figure out really quick when I actually make them do the movement. I give the command, make them do the movement,(yes, sometimes I have to almost drag them through it) and when they reach the correct position and focus on me(even if its a split second) they get a Huge reward. (Lots of praise and a great treat.)
Try it a couple of times and see if it doesn't help.
After I give the original command, they get no voice, treat or attention from me until they hit the spot. I still go through the motions with a treat in my hand, but I will "drag" them around to the correct position.When they hit it, and look at me, I make them feel like they just saved the world!
