Yep. One thing I have done for a long time now, is that I have my B sit before he eats. I'll be holding his dish and tell him to sit. He always follows through. At first it took him some time to be consistent but now he always sits, sometimes before I even say anything.
The key is being patient with this breed. They learn quick but you have to work on the consistency.
Yes, Keoki and Jazz must sit before they get their dinner, or any treats, and before they are let back into the house – we have a sliding glass door, and when they see us coming to let them in, they know to sit first. They sit before getting crated at night, etc.
They are reasonably good at coming/sitting when I use the clicker, though if something more interesting is happening elsewhere, they still appear deaf as doornails, LOL.
