Reward your dog with treats and praise when they sit and stay. This positive reinforcement strengthens their behavior.
Keep training sessions short but frequent. Dogs have short attention spans, so 10-15 minute sessions work best.
Choose a quiet, distraction-free area for training. It helps your dog focus on your commands.
Be patient with your dog. It may take time to master sit and stay. Avoid punishment; it can confuse your pet.
Once your dog masters basic commands, add distractions to challenge them, making obedience more reliable.
Practice sit and stay in various locations. This generalizes their obedience, ensuring they listen anywhere.
Consistency is key. Use the same commands and rewards every time you train.
