Are you working to teach your Czechoslovak Wolfdog to sit? The skill of sitting up is quickly taught to small dogs, though larger pooches are a different story. It’s tough for them to sustain their balance.
Teach Your Czechoslovak Wolfdog to Sit: Anticipation
Sitting up is one of the most basic tricks that you should teach to your Czechoslovak Wolfdog and is the foundation for various other techniques. In order to train a Czechoslovak Wolfdog to sit up, prepare some snacks as a perk, and set your Czechoslovak Wolfdog on her backside in a corner, to ensure she can not fall either aft or sideways and has very little or no room to stumble.
Teach Your Czechoslovak Wolfdog to Sit: Acquaint Her With The Words
Keep her from pitching towards you by maintaining your hand on her chin and with the other hand hold the treat above her nose. Keep repeating deliberately and distinctly, “sit.” Do not make her sit up for too long at any one time, but do repeat the training often and reward her regularly with loads of adoration and snacks.
Teach Your Czechoslovak Wolfdog to Sit: Help Her Stay Balanced
In her first lesson your Czechoslovak Wolfdog will require significant support from you to prevent her from pitching forward, but as she gains more control of the muscles and realises what you want her to do, she’ll depend less upon your hand to keep her in position. Gradually, you can give your Czechoslovak Wolfdog less help and support up until you will basically have to leave one hand in position two or three inches from her neck or chin, to be available to prevent her falling forward; in the future you will be able to take away the hand entirely and just simply hold the snack just above the height of your Czechoslovak Wolfdog’s head.
Teach Your Czechoslovak Wolfdog To Sit: Remove the Aids Progressively
With regular training she will sit up well after you set her up. Then she should be set up against the wall, so as to give her a support for her back only. Only after she has grasped this and can maintain her place effortlessly, practice with her against chair legs, cushions or other items that offer her less and less assistance. In the end she will figure out how to sustain her equilibrium and sit up without something to rest against.
Teach Your Czechoslovak Wolfdog to Sit: Putting It All Together
In the course of all these lessons the phrase "sit up" will have been impressed upon her subconscious by regular repetition. Lastly comes the final training to teach your Czechoslovak Wolfdog to sit up whenever she hears the command. There's a good chance, if she has been carefully instructed, you will only have to call her out into the room, reveal to her a reward, hold it up a suitable distance from the floor, 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 rehearse with your Czechoslovak Wolfdog several times a day until she can sit on command and without being shown a snack; give her the snacks only after she has complied with the order.
Teach Your Czechoslovak Wolfdog Other Tricks
You have now the technique for teaching your Czechoslovak Wolfdog many other skills. She now can be taught how to beg by moving your hand up and down just in front of her paws, which she'll move in rhythm with yours. She can also learn to salute by moving one paw to the side of her head, or to keep something in her mouth, or to wear a hat on her head or wear other articles of clothing.
While training a Czechoslovak Wolfdog to submit to being clothed, don't try to get her to wear too many items at the same time. Try her at first with a cap. Only after she gets used to that you can put on a coat and eventually introduce her to the other garments.
