In this week’s highlight, we wanted to showcase a simple dog trick. If you’ve gotten to the point where your dog is able to sit, you’re halfway there already.

  1. Stand on the leash and entertain your dog as he patiently sits.
  2. Wave socks or another toy above his reach to get him excited and ready to jump.
  3. When you notice your dog is about to jump, give the command to reinforce its relationship to the action. Be sure to reward him for a job well-done!
