Re: Sitting correctly
The way your trainer is telling you to do it is how I would also do it. It will take awhile because in her mind sit means rock back onto her butt instead of scooting her butt forward. You can also work on scoot sits where you draw the dog forward and up with the food, get the sit and then move her forward again. Hard to describe, easier to show. I tell them "scoot, sit, scoot, sit....." This can be first done with the dog moving parallel and in front of you (dog's side facing your front, you step sideways and the dog scoots forward....... hope that makes sense) and then at your side in heel position. Just make sure you do not reward for the rock back sit and NEVER adjust yourself to her position. If she rocks back don't change your position, make her move into the correct position (this is a common thing I see).
