This is an important lesson.Remember that the pupil should always be on the left side.You might think this relatively unimportant,but it is not.There is an acknowledged and approvedway to do most things,and and training tom the left side is the official, therefore the correct, method and worth emulating even if you have no intention of advanced obedience work.The dog should be moving on a loose lead at your left side. Halt suddenly,giving the command * sit *, at the same time swinging your body trunk round to the left,the feet being set firm.

Bring round the right hand which is holding a titbit,across and over the pupil's head.He will look upat it and provided you have synchronised your halt,the turn of the body and the right-hand action,he will at once bring his rear end down on the ground.This formula of synchronisation will usually work,but an awkward dog will haveto be persuaded into the sitting position by taking his collar in the right hand and pressing down his back and with the left.Should you find the dog sitting too far away from you,do not move towards him,but lessen the space between you by encouragement with gentle pressure on the lead.
