Teach Your Korean Jindo Dog to Sit

Are you aspiring to teach your Korean Jindo Dog to sit? The skill of sitting up is easily taught to little dogs, yet larger doggies are a different story. It is problematic for them to sustain their equilibrium.

Teach Your Korean Jindo Dog to Sit: Preparation

Sitting is one of the 1st skills that should be taught to a Korean Jindo Dog and is the foundation for many other techniques. To train a Korean Jindo Dog to sit up, prepare some snacks as a perk, and place the Korean Jindo Dog on her haunches in a corner, so that she won’t be able to fall either backward or sideways and has very little or no room to lose balance.

Teach Your Korean Jindo Dog to Sit: Familiarize Her With The Command

Protect her from tilting towards you by keeping 1 hand beneath her chin and with the second hand dangle her treat above the Korean Jindo Dog’s nose. Keep repeating clearly and deliberately, “sit up.” Do not force her to sit too long at any one time, however repeat the instruction frequently and reward her often with a lot of kudos and snacks.

Teach Your Korean Jindo Dog to Sit: Help Her Stay Balanced

Throughout the 1st lesson your Korean Jindo Dog will need quite a bit of support from you to keep her from pitching forward, but as she gains more control of her muscles and understands what you want, she’ll count less on your hand to keep her steady. Gradually, you can give your Korean Jindo Dog less support til you will basically have to leave one hand in position two or three inches from her chin or neck, to be available to prevent her falling forward; later you can most likely take away your hand completely and merely dangle the reward right above the level of her face.

Teach Your Korean Jindo Dog To Sit: Remove the Aids Slowly And Gradually

With frequent training she will sit up for a good while after you command her. Afterward she should be set against a wall, so as to offer her assistance for her back only. When she has learned this and can keep her position easily, practice with her against chair legs, pillows or other objects that give her less and less help and support. At some point she will master how to keep her stability and sit without relying on anything to lean against.

Teach Your Korean Jindo Dog to Sit: Putting It All Together

In the course of all this training the words "sit up" will have been impressed upon her mind by frequent repetition. Now is the final lesson to teach your Korean Jindo Dog to sit up immediately after she hears the words. Chances are, if she has been properly trained, you will just have to get her out into the room, show a reward, hold it up a reasonable distance from the ground, say "sit" and she'll obey. Then you'll give her the reward while still in place.

The only requirement for perfection is to practice with her several times a day until she will sit when told and without being shown a treat; give her the rewards only after she has obeyed the order.

Teach Your Korean Jindo Dog Other Tricks

You have now the technique for teaching your Korean Jindo Dog many other tricks. She now can learn to beg by moving your hand up and down just in front of her paws, which she'll move in coordination with yours. She can also be taught to salute by bringing one paw 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 articles of clothing.

While training a Korean Jindo Dog to tolerate being dressed up, don't try to make her wear too many items at one time. Try at first with a hat. After she becomes adjusted to that you can put on a jacket and steadily introduce her to the other clothes.
