Don't Loom over your dog...
Small dogs often can be threatened by the size of the person training them. If you loom over your small dog, he might be intimidated, unresponsive and even defensive while you're trying to teach him a new skill.
Because your body language is very important to consider when training your dog, make sure that you're working at his level. When you first start to train him, get down on the floor or place him on a chair or another surface that is at your height. Once you've been training for a while and your dog has grown more comfortable with the skill you're working on, you can then stand in an upright position.
