Trick #1 = Sit

Easy enough, teach your dog to sit. Either in front of you, beside you, on a box, with a fox. Just make sure that butt is touching the ground!!

Time Frame:
**DEADLINE HAS BEEN PROLONGED** Videos must be submitted by midnight on February 5th, EST. (Yes, I am a night owl).

Sit is one of my top five commands I train my dogs to do, and it's also one of the easiest. Most people will either lure or shape this command; luring is used to get the dog into the desired position with say a treat, or toy, and c/t (click and treating) when they are in position, and shaping is when one would c/t when the dog sits (or whatever command you are trying to teach). I myself will do both depending depending on the trick.


  1. I will not sit upon your box, I will not sit next to a fox. I will not sit here nor there, I will not sit anywhere!

    (Valkyrie btw)
