When we brought Angel home about 5 weeks ago, she didn't know how to sit either...She's 18 mos, but her career was supposed to have been in the ring and sit was a command that wasn't taught...The first training session we had, with Samson righ tthere of course, it took me 5 minutes to get her to sit...I tried the sweeping the arm under the back leg, you name it..Not easy to do with a larger boxer...Poor Samson was sitting the whole time and I swear I could hear him saying" look, if you would sit like Momma says, we get a treat, it's not that tough you know"....Lol..Eventually she learned..I hold the treat right in front of her face then start bringing it up as her head follows it, she's figured out that she needs to sit....

Keep working with it, but try not to lose your patience, not easy sometimes I know...Keep sessions short, that's what I do..I try and do 4 sessions a day for maybe 5 minutes and vary up the commands..Boxers get bored easy....

Hope this helps and keep us posted....
