You needn't use the word "sit" until you are confident your dog will sit on he/she's behind when you lure the dog with your hand. You can begin utilizing the term to signify to the dog the activity the dog is carrying out when you are 100% certain that the dog will sit then.
It is important that once you get passed this phase, you begin to use the word "sit" before you lure the dog upwards. The word "sit" should always be properly used prior to the dog's action, in order to signify to your pet.
