Teach Your Pug Puppy To Sit – 6 Easy Steps

teach your pug puppy to sit

Hi Everyone thanks for visiting.Lets look at how to teach your Pug puppy to sit.

Teaching your puppy to sit when you ask is one of the simplest behavior you can teach and it's normally the first command that must be mastered in basic obedience courses.

Sitting is a very useful behavior that can be used to stop unwanted behavior in its tracks.A well behaved puppy sits to say 'PLEASE' for anything that he wants.

Teach your pug puppy to sit and help to set up the calm, controlled behavior you want at the same time reducing hyper uncontrolled behavior that some pug puppies display.

The training process gets the relationship role between you and your dog off to a fine start and makes future teaching a lot easier.

Teach Your Pug Puppy To Sit

Plan to put aside 5 to 10 minutes a few times every week to complete this training. Get some small,soft training treats and you're ready to teach your pug puppy to sit.

1.Take a dog treat between your index finger and thumb with your palm facing up.

2. Allow your Pug to smell or even lick at the treat.

3. Tell your Pug 'SIT' and raise your hand slowly over his head, allowing him to follow the treat with his nose.

4. As he begins raising his head, his rear end will start to lower toward the floor. As soon as his but touches the floor, tell him 'GOOD SIT' and give him the treat.

You should hold the treat just high enough to get him to sit.If it's too high he will jump up and try to reach the treat.

5. Once your puppy has mastered the first 4 steps raise an empty hand at the elbow.Use this hand signal and the verbal cue without a treat in your hand. 

6.The final step is to just use the verbal cue.

One Final Thing

Always reinforce and reward this or any other command at the exact moment it occurs.

If your pug puppy won't sit after a few tries you can physically help her into the sit position. Of course, it's a lot better to use a hands off option.

Try using a dog snack as a lure while tucking her butt under. Again the second her bottom touches the ground tell her ''GOOD SIT'.

Now we've completed how you teach your Pug puppy to sit we can move on to teaching 'STAY'.

Bye now,
