Sit During Play 3 Sit then Collar – SIRIUS Adult Dog Training

We don’t want a dog that only listens when we hold its collar, so now we ask the dog to sit before we touch it.  We  still take the collar after they’ve sat, so that when we reward, we continue to reinforce their love of collar grabs.

Once the dog enjoys having their collar grabbed, introduce a sit command.  Don’t let them go back to playing until they’ve sat for you.

Four Steps to an Emergency Distance Sit With a little practice you can develop and absolutely rock-solid, long-distance, sit-stay that can save you from most dangerous or embarrassing situations your dog could get into. The secret to off-leash control is to thoroughly integrate fun training into all of your dog's off-leash activities. Total integration of training and play should be your aim from the very start. Interrupt your dog's off-leash activities every minute or so. Every time you interrupt an enjoyable activity by instructing your dog to sit, for example, and then allow him to resume the activity, you are reinforcing the dog's prompt sit with a powerful reward. The more you interrupt your dog's play, the more you may reward him for sitting promptly.
