Your Boston Terrier comes with a reputation of being stubborn but highly intelligent. Boston Terriers are gentle pups who love affection, and while pleasing their owners might not be top on their list, with some motivation, teaching yours to sit is easy to do.
Boston Terriers make great family dogs because they are kid-friendly, accepting of strangers and new people in their lives, and adapt well to change. Training your Boston Terrier to sit is a great start to beginning obedience training. Teaching basic obedience commands from an early age will also teach him to respect you and your authority within your pack.
Teaching your Boston Terrier to sit is going to start with some high-value treats and end with your pup following your commands. This is a great trick to teach your dog before you teach him anything else. Use the 'sit' command as a building block for basic obedience training.
Boston Terriers are highly intelligent dogs and eager to please. Your Boston Terrier can learn how to sit in a few simple training sessions. Keep his sessions short, however, because your pup may become bored and stop learning if he's not fully engaged. You can teach an older rescued or adopted Boston Terrier to sit just about as easily as you can teach a puppy to sit. Training the 'sit' command will be more about repetition and rewards than anything else. Repeating this command will condition your Boston Terrier to connect the word with the action and the treat reward with your command.
To start training the sit command to your Boston Terrier, grab some tasty treats and schedule some short training sessions with your little guy. Keep your training sessions short and focused only on the 'sit' command until he has that one down. Be sure to reward him throughout training and make learning fun so he continues to come back to learn more.
