Begging or "sitting pretty" is an adorable trick to teach your dog, and it can be done in just a few simple steps. Unlike unwanted begging at the dinner table, begging on cue is a trained behavior in which your dog balances on his rear and hind legs with his upper body upright, resembling an alert rabbit.

The move is bound to impress when added to your dog’s trick arsenal, and most canines pick it up easily. Watch our step-by-step video on training your dog to perform the beg or sit pretty behavior. One cautionary note: It may not be safe or comfortable for long-bodied breeds, such as Dachshunds and Corgis, to perform this trick, so it’s best if they sit this one out.
