Sitting is one of the very first skills that should be taught to your Prazsky Krysarik and lays the groundwork for various other techniques.

Keep her from tilting to the front by sticking 1 hand underneath her chin and with the second hand hold her reward above the Prazsky Krysarik’s nose. Keep repeating intelligibly and clearly, “sit up.” Do not make her sit up too long at any one time, however repeat the instruction routinely and reward her regularly with lots of adoration and snacks.
Teach Your Prazsky Krysarik to Sit: Help Her Keep Her Balance
Throughout the first lesson she will require significant help from you to prevent her from tumbling forward, but as she gets more control of the balancing muscles and comprehends what you want her to do, she will count less upon your hand to keep her steady. Gradually, you can give your Prazsky Krysarik less help til you will just have to keep one hand in position two or three inches from her chin or neck, to be set to stop her from falling forward; later on you can probably take away this hand and just suspend the reward just over the level of her head.
Teach Your Prazsky Krysarik To Sit: Remove the Assistance Gradually Over Time
With regular practice your Prazsky Krysarik will sit up long after you command her. Afterward she should be set up against a wall, so as to offer her a support for her back. After she has understood this and can hold her place easily, practice with her against chair legs, cushions or other things that give her less and less help and support. Gradually she will understand how to sustain her balance and sit without something to lean on.
Teach Your Prazsky Krysarik to Sit: Putting It All Together
Throughout all this training the phrase "sit up" will have been impressed upon her subconscious by constant repetition. Last is the final training to teach your Prazsky Krysarik to sit up immediately after she hears the phrase. It's highly likely, if she has been carefully taught, you will merely have to get her out in the room, show her a treat, hold it up a suitable distance from the floor, say "sit up or sit" and she will obey. Then you'll give her the snack while still in place.
The only requirement for flawlessness is to train with her several times daily until she sits when commanded to and without being shown a snack; give her the treats only once she has followed the order.

You have now the method for teaching your Prazsky Krysarik many other skills. She now can be taught to beg by moving your hand up and down just in front of her paws, which she will move in rhythm with yours.
