x2 for above
Dog is on a 4' lead and knows verbal command "Sit" prior.
Lots of reps.

There's a lot of ways to teach it, but it depends on the pups'/dogs' age as to what tools, training history, and how you'd want to teach it.
And-
Re-enforce it.

from this can you explain why you want the dog to sit out in the field? im wondering because it sounds like you are trying to handle on a mark.

Sit him down in front of you and walk backwards 15 yards. Hide a bumber behind your back. Call the dog to you and when he starts to come blow the whistle and walk towards him with your hand open ( stop motion.) When he sits, immediately reward him with a fun bumper. Alternate between sitting him and letting him come all the way back to you. This will prevent him from sitting without blowing the whistle. Slowly extend the distance between the handler and dog. Next, throw a mark and stand between the dog and the mark but give the dog some room to run by you. Send the dog on the mark, blow the whistle, step out in front of him, and make sure he sits. Then, Immediately after the dog sits send him to the mark. Alternate this to prevent him sitting without the whistle. Work closer to the dog until he is at heal. This is just one way... there are lots of others. *** Highly recommend doing obedience before the drill and work sit at heal with a whistle.
