The MAGIC Word That Solves Most Labrador Behaviour Problems
Recently, I have read quite a few posts on forums about Labradors that jump up on visitors to their homes. A lot of people don’t know how to deal with jumping and a jumping adult Labrador Retriever can be plain scary to some.
This is an incredibly easy problem to fix. All it takes is one word: “Sit.”
“Sit” is the solution to many behaviour problems. The sit command is the answer, and it’s the easiest thing in the world to train a dog to do. When a dog is sitting, it can’t be jumping up. Train your Lab to sit using rewards and you’ll see a big difference in behaviour.
Many adult Labs already know the sit command so using it frequently can stop jumping in it’s tracks. Even Labradors that don’t know the command to sit know how to sit. If you teach the dog to sit on command, you’ve solved all kinds of problems. Labrador Retrievers are so trainable because they want to please you and lets face it, Labs will do anything for food. They really do want to sit for you!
