This is one of the easiest dog obedience commands to teach, so it's a good one to start with.

  1. Hold a treat close to your dog's nose.
  2. Move your hand up, allowing his head to follow the treat and causing his bottom to lower.
  3. Once he's in sitting position, say "Sit," give him the treat, and share affection.

Take her out first thing in the morning, after breakfast, after dinner, and a few times throughout the day and before bedtime. If she doesn't go, bring her back inside and immediately put her in her crate for 10 minutes before trying again. Do not let her loose indoors if she has not eliminated outside!

Instead, the best way to train away aggressive behavior is to reward good behavior. Sometimes your dog may need a little reminder that you are in charge, but ultimately he will respond best to reconditioning through reward-based training. Much like children, dogs need to be conditioned to not act out.
