- To help the dog achieve a sit-stand position, first allow the dog to sit while holding the dog up with both hands from behind and feet pressed against the dog's buttocks.
- When the dog is in a more stable sit-stand position, support the dog's hand with an up-and-down motion, allowing him to find his own balance rather than holding a position still, which would make the dog reliant.
- As soon as he manages to stand up on his own and you can hold him for a moment, reward him with food. Continue to gather, and the dog will eventually be able to break free of your grasp.
- It is only on the basis of this that we can gradually and steadily increase the time limit in increments of two, three, four, etc. seconds. Sitting and standing lessons can make dogs tired easily, so young dogs are not suitable for it because of their weak waist and legs. Wait for both parts to become stronger before starting the lesson, and do not rush in training.
- As long as he is slightly better(improved) than before, you can reward him with food or praise. Depending on his physical condition, you can stop training when the dog is most energetic to maintain his motivation and self-assurance.
- If you only begin to stop training when he is exhausted and his confidence has fallen, his confidence will be damaged, and he won't like to do this lesson in the future.
- When training, be patient, never rush, and strictly follow the natural laws (it is challenging to get him to focus at first). Keep in mind that training benefits the owner's endurance as well as the dog's.
Do’s and Donts’
1、You should start off by speaking to the dog softly as a habit and refrain from frequently yelling. Shouting will only make the dog numb and lifeless.
2、It is preferable to teach a dog to sit and stand in a familiar, secure, and quiet environment. In a slightly distracting environment, go over what has been learned; however, do a review of something he has mastered in a more distracting setting.
