53 (video) – Teaching your dog how to sit
Pet podcast #53 is our first video podcast with dog trainer and animal behaviourist Sherry Bedard. Effective immediately, Sherry will be helping us put together short videos that offer quick tips to pet owners. This first video (about 5 minutes long) is about teaching your dog how to sit but it also talks about other training concepts like “capturing”.
It’s obvious from the video that Sherry’s dog Hailey knows lots of tricks that she wants to perform for the camera, but this technique works well on dogs with no training at all.
In terms of the occasional yapping in the background…sorry about that, this was shot at the SPCA and controlling the background noise is difficult. Gonna choose a different location next time.
