Sabana Grande Travel on At this command your dog should sit down, not up. Sit follows naturally after heeling. Hold the leash in your right hand, close to the dog’s collar. When he is heeling beside you, stop and command Sit! in a firm voice. At the same time pull up on the leash and push his hindquarters down. The upward pull on the leash will keep his head raised so that he cannot lie down. Joy Fielding either a bottle of wine or gifts for the kids. Sabana Grande Travel 2016.
