| | how many times will he SIT at home on 1 cue, out of 5 tries? [4 = 80%]

that's an excellent goal, but how good is his sit on cue at home, w/o distractions?
Until at home "sit" gets at least 80% compliance on a 1st cue, don't expect better than 50/50 when he's away from home, & so many things compete for his attn.
That doesn't mean don't practice! - just don't be horribly discouraged if "sit" isn't reliable away from home. Keeping working on SIT anywhere, everywhere, & make the surfaces, contexts, & times of day / evening
as different as possible.
Don't forget to mark & reward compliance, too.
