Tips For Training Your Magyar Agar To Sit

Teach Your Magyar Agar to Sit

Are you struggling to teach your Magyar Agar to sit? The technique of sitting up is regularly taught to pocket-sized dogs, though much larger canines are a different story. It is hard for them to sustain their balance.

Teach Your Magyar Agar to Sit: Anticipation

Sitting up is one of the initial tricks that you should teach to a Magyar Agar and provides the ground work for quite a few other tricks. To train a Magyar Agar to sit up, prepare some treats as a perk, and set the Magyar Agar on her rump in a corner, to ensure that she won’t be able to fall either backward or sideways and has very little or no space to lose balance.

Teach Your Magyar Agar to Sit: Acquaint Her With The Command

Protect her from tilting forward by sticking 1 hand beneath her chin and using the other hand dangle the snack above her face. Keep repeating intelligibly and clearly, “sit.” Don’t make her sit up too long at any one time, but do repeat the training routinely and reward her frequently with lots of cheers and treats.

Teach Your Magyar Agar to Sit: Help Her Stay Balanced

In her very first lesson she will require considerable support from your hand to stop her from falling forward, but as she gains better control of her balancing muscles and starts to understand what you want her to do, she’ll depend less and less upon your hand to hold her in position. Then you can gradually give her less assistance until you will just have to leave one hand in position 2 or 3 inches from her neck or chin, to be in position to prevent her falling forward; later on you can easily remove your hand completely and just hold the snack right above the height of her head.

Teach Your Magyar Agar To Sit: Remove the Help Gradually

After regular practice she will stay seated for a good while after you set her up. Afterward she should be set against the wall, so as to offer her a support for her back only. When she has gotten the hang of this and can maintain her posture effortlessly, practice with her using chair legs, cushions or other objects that offer her less and less assistance. In time she will master how to keep her stability and sit without something to rest on.

Teach Your Magyar Agar to Sit: Putting It All Together

Throughout all this training the words "sit up" will have been impressed upon her subconscious with the assistance of frequent repetition. Now is the final training to teach your Magyar Agar to sit up immediately after she hears the command. There's a good chance, if she has been carefully instructed, you will merely have to call her out into the room, reveal a treat, hold it up a reasonable distance from the ground, say "sit" and she will obey. Then you'll give her the snack while still in place.

The only prerequisite for perfection is to train with your Magyar Agar several times daily until she will sit up when told and without being shown a treat; give her the snacks only after she has adhered to the command.

Teach Your Magyar Agar Other Tricks

You have now the method for teaching your Magyar Agar many other skills. She now can learn how to beg by waving your hand up and down in front of her paws, which she'll move in coordination with yours. She also can be taught to salute by moving one paw to the side of her head, or to keep a toy in her mouth, or to wear a hat on her head or wear other clothing.

While teaching a Magyar Agar to accept being clothed, do not try to make her wear too many things simultaneously. Try her at first with just a hat. Once she becomes accustomed to that you can put on a jacket and over time introduce her to more garments.

Appreciate "teaching your Magyar Agar the sit up trick" and most importantly have fun while you're doing it!
