Hold a treat in your right hand between your thumb and first 2 fingers. Hold the treat right on your puppy’s nose. Move your hand, with the palm vertical to the floor, slightly away from your puppy’s nose. As his hind quarters come up, reward and praise.
Once your puppy follows the treat 8 out of 10 times, you can start adding in your verbal cues: “sit” “down” and “stand”
