Re: Getting him to sit in the run??????
Context and WHERE our dogs do a behavior may seem the same to us (a sit is a sit is a sit, right?). But to a DOG a 'sit' in the kitchen in front of me when I have a treat, is COMPLETELY a different command to my dog when it's given in a busy area on Main Street (even if I still have a treat). The command is exactly the same, but my dog doesn't behave the same cause it's NOT clear to them and not the same at all.
Clicker training and dog classes would help with the context and training of this.
