Teach Your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to Sit

Are you making an attempt to teach your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to sit? The talent of sitting up is easily taught to compact dogs, but larger pooches are a different story. It is challenging for them to keep their equilibrium.

Teach Your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to Sit: Planning

Sitting up is one of the initial techniques that you should teach to your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog and is the ground work for plenty of other skills. To train a Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to sit up, prepare some treats as a perk, and set your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog on her backside in the corner, to ensure she is not able to fall either backward or sideways and has very little or no room to lose balance.

Teach Your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to Sit: Familiarize Her With The Command

Protect her from pitching forward by keeping 1 hand on her chin and with the second hand dangle her treat above her nose. Keep repeating intelligibly and clearly, “sit up.” Do not make her sit up for too long at one time, however repeat the lesson regularly and reward her frequently with loads of praise and treats.

Teach Your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to Sit: Help Her Stay Balanced

During her initial lesson she will call for significant help and support from you to stop her from pitching forward, but as she gets more control of her muscles and starts to learn what you want her to do, she’ll rely less and less on your hand to hold her steady. Then you can gradually give her less support until you will basically have to keep one hand in position 2 or 3 inches from her chin or neck, to be ready to stop her from falling forward; in the future you can probably remove the hand altogether and simply suspend the reward just over the level of your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog’s face.

Teach Your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog To Sit: Remove the Help Slowly

With regular practice your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog will stay seated well after you make her. The next step is she should be set against your wall, so as to provide her help for her back. When she has figured out this and can maintain her place effortlessly, practice with her against chair legs, pillows or other objects that offer her less and less help and support. Gradually she will learn to maintain her balance and sit in the absence of something to lean against.

Teach Your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to Sit: Putting It All Together

In the course of all this training the command "sit up" will have been instilled upon her mind with the assistance of regular repetition. Lastly comes the final training to teach your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to sit up immediately after she hears the phrase. Chances are, if she has been properly instructed, you will simply have to get her out in the room, display to her a snack, hold it up a suitable distance from the ground, say "sit up or sit" and she'll obey. Then give her the reward while still in place.

The only criteria for excellence is to rehearse with your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog multiple times a day until she will sit up on command and without being shown a reward; give her the treats only after she has followed the direction.

Teach Your Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog Other Tricks

When training a Phu Quoc Ridgeback Dog to accept being dressed up, don't try to get her to wear too many things simultaneously. Try her at first with a hat. Soon after she becomes adjusted to that you could put on a jacket and slowly introduce her to the other clothes.
