Sit Pretty

Besides being a cool trick, sit pretty is a good exercise to build your dog’s abdominal muscles, but it is not for every dog as there are some breeds and shapes of dog that it’s not suitable for example, longer backed breeds, very young dogs or any dog with specific health issues (you should ask you vet if you are unsure).

This takes a lot of core strength and balance so take this game slowly and gradually to enable your dog to complete the position safely. Be sure your dog is comfortable sitting in the middle position before you begin luring.

This is a very physical exercise for your dog, so take your time and let you dog learn it slowly and safely over a period of time.

Dog will sit up on his rear legs as if to beg. The dog should not be supported by the handler or a wall.
