In this activity, you will shape your puppy to settle on a mat, bed, or blanket. The goal is to teach your dog to learn to lie down, rest and wait calmly in class and at home. This is also useful for teaching settle in crate and polite greetings and manners around visitors.
Each week in class, we will build the "settle" behavior. Practice the level you learned in your last class. (Example: if this is week was your first class with your puppy, your homework is Settle Level 1).
SIT / HAND SIGNAL FOR SIT
The sit cue is the first stationary behavior to teach a puppy. Initially, the sit cue is taught from the standing position. Eventually, the sit cue may be taught from a lying down position. Sit means to touch or to keep the puppy’s bottom on the ground.
