16.2 -- Training Your Dog: Sit at the Door, Down, Sit for Greetings, and -- Pairing Obedience Commands --

Session Two Sit for Greetings:

1.With your dog in heel position, approach a person familiar to your dog.This person should remain relaxed and quiet.

2.With your dog sitting, exchange greetings.

3. Have your friend greet your dog with calm verbal praise only.

4. If your dog attempts to break the sit, repeat the command “Sit,” and give him a “Pop.” Do not use your Remote Collar at this stage.Your friend should ignore your dog and step away if he breaks the command.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 as needed, until your dog remains in a sit for greetings for 20 seconds.

6. Release your dog and briefly play with him, but do not allow him to jump up or pull on the leash.

7. Repeat the above sequence.

Pairing Come, Heel and Sit:

1. Practice Come, Heel and Sit for 10 minutes.

2.Vary the time you keep your dog in a command, and praise and reward your dog when appropriate.

3. Reinforce your commands using the Remote Collar, as needed.

4. If you have to use the Remote Collar for the command, be sure to use it the next 3 times you give your dog that command.

5. Release and play enthusiastically with your dog between exercises.

  • Although your dog is becoming proficient with the Sit command, the presence of a familiar person will be a distracting to your dog initially. Be patient, as most dogs are not use to greeting people politely.
  • Practice the sit for greetings on your walks with your dog. Tell people your dog is in training and ask them to praise your dog calmly. Sit for greetings. “Pop” for breaking the command. Your friend steps away. Greetings with dog in proper position.
