Teach Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to Sit

Are you working to teach your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to sit? The talent of sitting up is quite easily taught to little dogs, however much larger doggies are another story. It’s hard for them to keep their balance.

Teach Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to Sit: Foundation

Sitting is one of the initial tricks that should be taught to your Caucasian Shepherd Dog and is the foundation for several other skills. In order to train a Caucasian Shepherd Dog to sit up, put together some treats as a perk, and place the Caucasian Shepherd Dog on her rump in the corner, so she will not fall either aft or sideways and has very little or no room to stumble.

Teach Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to Sit: Familiarize Her With The Words

Prevent her from falling to the front by sticking one hand under her chin and using the other hand hold her treat above the Caucasian Shepherd Dog’s nose. Keep repeating deliberately and clearly, “sit.” Do not make her sit for too long at any one time, but repeat the instruction regularly and reward her regularly with plenty of praise and snacks.

Teach Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to Sit: Help Her Maintain Balance

Throughout her initial lesson your Caucasian Shepherd Dog will require a lot of help and support from your hand to keep her from falling forward, but as she gets better control of her stabilizing muscles and realises what you want, she’ll depend less upon your hand to hold her in position. Then you can gradually give her less support until you will just have to maintain one hand in position 2 or 3 inches from her chin or neck, to be ready to prevent her from falling forward; later you may withdraw the hand altogether and simply dangle the treat just over the level of your Caucasian Shepherd Dog’s face.

Teach Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog To Sit: Remove the Aids Slowly

After consistent training your Caucasian Shepherd Dog will stay seated long after you make her. Afterward she should be set against the wall, so as to provide her assistance for her back only. Soon after she has gotten the hang of this and can keep her place easily, practice with her up against chair legs, pillows or other items that offer her less and less assistance. Gradually she will be able to maintain her stability and sit up without something to lean against.

Teach Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to Sit: Putting It All Together

During all this training the words "sit up" will have been instilled upon her psyche by means of frequent repetition. Now is the final lesson to teach your Caucasian Shepherd Dog to sit up as quickly as she hears the phrase. There's a good chance, if she has been carefully instructed, you will just have to call her out into the room, show her a snack, hold it up a suitable distance from the floor, say "sit up or sit" and she'll do so. Then you'll just give her the reward while still in position.

The only necessity for flawlessness is to train with her several times daily until she can sit up on command and without being shown a treat; give her the treats only after she has adhered to the direction.

Teach Your Caucasian Shepherd Dog Other Tricks

You have now the basis for teaching your Caucasian Shepherd Dog many other tricks. She can now be taught to beg by waving your hand up and down just in front of her paws, which she'll move in conjunction with yours. She can also learn to salute by moving one paw to the side of her head, or to keep a toy in her mouth, or to wear a cap on her head or wear other clothes.

While teaching a Caucasian Shepherd Dog to submit to being dressed up, do not try to make her wear too many things at once. Try at first with just a cap. Only after she gets accustomed to that you can put on a coat and incrementally introduce her to the other garments.
