Winnie, a Goldendoodle, is showing off her skills in dog parkour class by sitting on this log.

We used this pic as the feature pic for a post and video titled "Does your puppy know “Sit”? Are you sure? (Hint: it’s about the context!)"

We think of Sit as a pretty easy cue to teach our dogs. For some dogs, it might even be the only thing they learn.

But here's something to think about. . . What is your expectation for Sit?

Most people stop at the first step, which usually is: sit for a brief second directly in front of me when I have a treat in my hand.

But have you thought about where you go from there?

The Light Of Dog

Bailey is the Black Lab mix in this video.

She was recently adopted and the owners wanted to know if she could join an upcoming group class.

Two concerns for her were her fearfulness at new/unexpected things and her unknown behavior with other dogs. So they brought her out for a quick visit for us to assess.

You can see in the video that she is curious and interested in the other dog. But as she gets more comfortable, she is also able to focus on her handlers and their treats.

Toward the end of the video we do see one lip curl/snarl from Bailey when the Goldendoodle turns toward her and is face-to-face, but we quickly give them both space and Bailey recovers immediately.

When she first arrived, she had her tail tucked all the way up under her. She was very nervous about being in a new place and not knowing what to expect. When the wind kicks up at one point, you see her startle. But she recovers quickly again.

We determined that Bailey would be a good candidate for the group class and that it will be a good step toward teaching her better manners, getting better acclimated to other dogs, and building her confidence.
