I've been working with Sadie on hand signals and voice commands. She'll go from standing into sit and from sit to down, with no problems. But from a down, she'll go to sit only with hand signal but not with voice. Is this reasonable? She looks confused unless I motion with the hand. I'd be glad to hear any comments on this.


Thanks.

I was kind of surprised no one responded. But I found the solution anyhow. My trainer suggested that I make a small step toward her while giving the command to sit. She automatically raises up into a sit. After doing this for about 10 reps, I didn't need the step, she was responding just fine.


Hope this helps someone.

Didn't see this before sorry.


All things are done in baby steps so once they learn it one way you can slowly alter it.
