Trick Tuesday: Sit Pretty

Welcome back to Trick Tuesday!  Every Tuesday, another trick tutorial.

Today, Reggie challenges the cuteness factor by helping me demonstrate the “sit pretty” trick.  This one takes balance and core strength for the dog.  Be sure your dog is physically sound enough to participate.  This isn’t a good trick to teach our senior dogs!

Method: Luring
Skill Level: Intermediate
What you’ll need: Food, dog, conditioned reinforcer, pillows (optional), wall (optional)

This trick not only requires understanding, but also a good degree of balance and strength in your dog’s core.  Don’t be surprised if it takes them many sessions to be able to balance and hold position.  Remember that bracing them with pillows or a wall may help them with this trick.

Happy training!!!
