Step 4: Praise and reward them when they are sitting pretty.
Once they sit pretty, give a verbal command such as “pretty” or “good” and immediately click or give them a treat. This will see your reward for sitting pretty.
If you have something in your hand that they like, you can rub it on their nose and then give it to them. This way, you only need the one word or clicker, and they know what they are being rewarded for. They will love it and keep doing it over and over again because they know a treat is coming their way.
Step 5: Practice makes perfect.
If, at first, they do not sit pretty, don’t give up. You can practice until they get it. You can practice with your dog in different places such as the park, at home, or anywhere you like. With so many of us working from home, you can schedule practice so that you can take a break from work!
How Long Does It Take To Teach A Dog To Sit Pretty?
All animals take a while to learn tricks. That is because these are physical skills that require practice. It is essential if you want your dog to do more than just sit still.
Dogs are full of energy when they’re young, but as they grow old, their energy level drops, so they need less exercise as adults. The level that’s right for your dog will change as he or she grows.
Dog training takes time and patience. If you want to teach your dog a few tricks, the first thing you need to do is make sure that your dog is in a calm and relaxed state. Learn about how to achieve this state so that you can better work on training new skills. It’s vital for you and your dog.
