Proofing the "sit" cue
We are very verbal creatures, unlike dogs who find body language much easier to understand. This means that we as handlers sometimes overestimate what our dogs actually know, that is, what behaviors the dog can perform when we ask it to do so. We usually think that the dog knows more than it really does and believe that for example it is always the word “sit” that makes the dog to sit.
