I was looking through some old pictures on my phone and came across one of Mia when she was a little pup! The newer picture isn't very recent, but it was the most recent I could find of her sitting down.

I love finding pictures I can compare perfectly down to the pose. :wub:



Edit: I don't know why the picture is still appearing sideways, I tried to fix it. Oh well.

I was worried about it at first thinking she might sit like that because her hips hurt, but I noticed so many dogs on herr sit the same way. Now that I'm not horribly worried about it I think it's adorable. :eek:

Thank you, I do too! :wub: When I first got her I thought I'd be so disappointed if her ears didn't stand up perfectly, and while it's stood up a little bit since that picture was taken, it's still pretty much half-flop. I absolutely adore it. :blush:

my pup use to sit like that. his trainer didn't allow it simply
because she thought dogs look better when sitting with
their legs under them. when my pup sat like that i use to take
one step forward, tell him to sit simultaneously sliding my hand
down his back as if rubbing him adding a little pressure on his rear
continuing to slide my hand down his left leg making place
his legs under him. it sounds like a lot but once you do it you'll
see it's one smooth motion. my pup was on my left side for this exercise.

I don't mind it at all, really. The only time she really sits like this is when she sits down normally and doesn't receive praise immediately, or if I tell her to sit while she is already sitting - she sits 'more'.

i dont like my pup sitting like this either. it looks lazy and (no offense) girly. my pup doesnt get his treat if i tell him to sit and he doesnt sit properly. a lazy sit means a sloppy down with the dog laying to one side which means the dog cant pop up. im just a technique freak

Berlin sits like this too, I call it his 'lazy' sit. FWIW, he does not sit like this when I ask for a sit. He only does it when he's being casual (like below picture LOL)
