I am hoping to take my boxer Comrade to Puppy School soon but am starting little things with him myself. One thing that he has picked up really quickly is 'Sit' actually I think he does it naturally. I get him to sit at the lights while we wait to the lights to change or when a bike needs to pass us while we are walking etc and he does so easily as I give him a doggy treat each time... Anyway he is getting to smart and tries to sit down during the walk (when I haven't asked him to) and looks up for a treat. I have to pull on his lead (which is attached to a harness) to get him to keep going.
I would like to reward him for walking beside me well as he does most the time but haven't figured out a way to to that besides verbally. Any suggestions?
Hope all that made sence! LOL
