Mastering Sit, Stay, and Fetch: A Pictorial Guide
Are you ready to take your dog's training to the next level? At Far Fetchers, we specialize in teaching dogs to fetch, and we have the perfect guide to help you master the essential commands of sit, stay, and fetch. Our step-by-step pictorial guide will make the training process fun and easy for both you and your furry friend.
Step 1: Teaching the 'Sit' Command
Start by holding a treat close to your dog's nose. Slowly move your hand up, allowing their head to follow the treat and causing their bottom to lower. Once they're in a sitting position, say 'Sit', give them the treat, and shower them with affection. Repeat this process until your dog understands and responds to the command consistently.
Step 2: Mastering the 'Stay' Command
After your dog has mastered the 'Sit' command, it's time to move on to 'Stay'. Ask your dog to sit, then open the palm of your hand in front of you and say 'Stay'. Take a few steps back, and if your dog stays in place, reward them with a treat. Gradually increase the distance and duration of the 'Stay' command, always rewarding your dog for their obedience.
Step 3: Learning the 'Fetch' Command
Now it's time for the fun part – teaching your dog to fetch! Throw a toy and say 'Fetch'. When your dog goes to get the toy, call them back with a 'Come' command. Once they return, ask them to 'Drop It' before you throw the toy again. Reward your dog with treats and praise each time they fetch correctly. With practice, your dog will become a fetching pro!
Step 4: Combining 'Sit', 'Stay', and 'Fetch' Commands
In this final step, you'll combine all the commands to create a well-trained, obedient dog. Have your dog sit and stay, then throw the toy and say 'Fetch'. This teaches them to wait until they're instructed to fetch, reducing their instinct to jump impulsively. With consistency and positive reinforcement, your dog will become a fetch superstar!

That's why we provide comprehensive resources, including dog fetch machines, toys, and easy-to-follow training guides.
