Position Changes

A dog’s brain is very context-dependent.  You have to teach them Sit From Down as well as Sit From Stand.  In the dog’s mind, they’re entirely different.  Use at least three positions to keep them listening.

Sit, Stand & Down

Sit
1. Say "Joe Pup, Sit." 2. Keeping the lure close to your puppy's nose, slowly move it upwards and backwards over the pup's muzzle towards his eyes. As your pup lifts his nose to follow the treat, he will sit down. (Do not lift your hand too high or your puppy will jump up.) 3. As soon as your puppy sits, say "Good little doggie!" and offer a piece of kibble as a reward.
