SILENT SIT: With a treat in your hand (the hand on the working side of your body/the side you will be walking your dog) and slowly take the treat back over the pups head so that as they follow the treat, the head comes up and the bottom hits the floor. As soon as the bottom hits the floor, release the treat.
SILENT DOWN: From a sit, hold the treat to the pups nose and take it straight down to the floor in a straight line. Hold the hand still and wait for the pups chest to hit the floor. As soon as it does this, release the treat.
SILENT STAND: From a sit, hold a treat on your pup’s nose and very slowly bring it forward in a horizontal line forward. As soon as the Pups back legs are up, release the treat. The pup must NOT take any steps with the back legs.
