TRIPLE CROWN TIPS
Once your dog becomes accustomed to sitting and waiting at doors, vary the number of times you invite him through, by returning to him on every other occasion, and vary the time that you have him wait. Walk backwards through the door. If dog breaks, press stimulation button and repeat “Sit” command. Release stimulation and praise when dog sits.
