Teaching sit is an important safety tactic.

Let’s say  your dog has a tendency to run out the front door:    If  your dog has an excellent response to the sit command, as he starts to bolt you simply say sit  in a firm voice, no yelling, but louder than normal conversation. If you’ve trained him right, his butt will hit the ground and he will stop. This keeps him from running after something and bolting out into the street where he might get hurt.
