There are times when you are out on a walk that you would need your dog to stop when you stop. If you stop at a cross walk, you would not want your dog to keep moving out into traffic. I personally do not teach an automatic sit but do want my dogs to know how to stop moving when I stop moving. It is also great for going down and up stairs.
This exercise is one of twenty five challenges, drills, exercises, and games that are in my Loose Leash Walking Online Class. For a short time, this class will be offered for an introductory rate of $80. To find out more about my online classes go to the Online Classes link.
