|Warm-up with 5 repetitions of the 2nd layer||Select a release word. Popular words are release, free, freedom, break, or done|
|Cue the SIT then say your release word. If your dog moves, mark the movement with a ‘Yes’, toss a treat to reset your dog||If your dog doesn’t move, back up a few steps and make kissy sounds.|
|Repeat the above steps four more times|
