I have two little dogs. One is a Chi Dachshund mix (Peanut), the other looks like a small Corgi (Sugar). They always get a treat each morning when I get my morning chores done and am ready to sit down for a while. My son has a Pharaoh Hound mix (Athena). My son's rule is that Athena must "sit pretty" to get a treat. This morning, when I told Athena to sit pretty, both of mine sat pretty, too. I've never tried to teach them to sit. Just about the only commands they know are "down" to get off the furniture, and "out".
