Be Consistent

For example, if you want to teach your dog to sit politely when meeting a stranger, be sure to ALWAYS require your dog to sit politely and wait to be released to “Say Hello”. You dog can only learn the rules if the rules remain the same always. This takes commitment on the part of the trainer. If you become lazy, you will only confuse your dog. The more consistent you are, the quicker your dog will develop the desired habit.
