How To Train Your Toy Bulldog To Sit

Teach Your Toy Bulldog to Sit

Are you aiming to teach your Toy Bulldog to sit? The technique of sitting up is regularly taught to very small dogs, but much bigger doggies are a different story. It is hard for them to maintain their balance.

Teach Your Toy Bulldog to Sit: Preparation

Sitting is one of the very first techniques that should be taught to your Toy Bulldog and is the foundation for many other tricks. To train a Toy Bulldog to sit up, organize some snacks as a perk, and set your Toy Bulldog on her rump in a corner, so that she can not fall either aft or sideways and has very little or no room to stumble.

Teach Your Toy Bulldog to Sit: Acquaint Her With The Words

Prevent her from tilting towards you by sticking your hand underneath her chin and using your other hand hold the reward above the Toy Bulldog’s nose. Keep saying distinctly and intelligibly, “sit.” Don’t make her sit for too long at any one time, but repeat the lesson frequently and reward her frequently with loads of praise and treats.

Teach Your Toy Bulldog to Sit: Help Her Maintain Balance

In the very first lesson she will call for considerable help and support from your hand to stop her from falling forward, but as she gets more control of the stabilizing muscles and comprehends what you want her to do, she’ll count less and less upon your hand to hold her in position. Gradually, you can give her less help up until you will basically have to maintain one hand in position two or three inches from her chin or neck, to be in place to prevent her falling forward; later you can easily remove this hand and merely hold the treat just over the level of her head.

Teach Your Toy Bulldog To Sit: Remove the Help Progressively

With constant training she will sit up for a long time after you make her. The next step is she should be set against a wall, so as to offer her a support for her back only. Only after she has gotten the knack of this and can maintain her posture effortlessly, rehearse with her against chair legs, pillows or other objects that give her less and less aid. In the end she will learn how to preserve her equilibrium and sit up without anything to rest on.

Teach Your Toy Bulldog to Sit: Putting It All Together

During all these lessons the command "sit up" will have been ingrained upon her psyche with the assistance of frequent repetition. Now here's the final lesson to teach your Toy Bulldog to sit up right after she hears the words. Chances are, if she has been diligently taught, you will simply have to get her out into the room, show her a treat, hold it up a reasonable distance from the ground, say "sit up or sit" and she'll obey. Then you'll give her the snack while still in place.

The only criteria for flawlessness is to train with your Toy Bulldog multiple times daily until she sits when commanded to and without being shown a treat; give her the rewards only after she has complied with the direction.

Teach Your Toy Bulldog Other Tricks

You have now the foundation for teaching your Toy Bulldog many other skills. She now can learn how to beg by waving your hand up and down in front of her paws, which she will move in conjunction with yours. She can also learn to salute by moving one paw up to the side of her head, or to keep a wooden pipe in her mouth, or to wear a hat on her head or wear other clothing.

In teaching a Toy Bulldog to accept being clothed, don't try to make her wear too many things simultaneously. Try her at first with just a cap. Soon after she gets familiar with that you could put on a jacket and progressively introduce her to the other garments.

Enjoy "teaching your Toy Bulldog the sit up trick" and most importantly have fun at the same time!
