Practice, practice practice

Ive always found the clinically staged practice sessions most effective. Then when there is an ounce of success and understanding from the dog it can be encouraged and reenforced at other times (oh, too often at that age..lol) durring your daily routine.

Get a friend to help.. post a note on the outside of your door asking for EVERY visitor to knock and be prepared to participate in the new routine, asking them.. please dont accknowledge the dog until I have pup in a sit, have praised him, and have given you persmission to approach and pat (reward for positive action) the dog.
