    65 - Introduce 'stand stay'

    65 - Introduce 'stand stay'

    Once your dog is reliably offering the 'stand' you can teach him to stay in that position. You will be using the same steps as in the other 'stay' exercises. Gradually extend the length of time that you are asking him to maintain the stand, but vary the times so that they are not predictable to the dog. This will help him to stay engaged and not anticipate anything. Give him the cue to stand and start delaying the click for a few seconds to extend the time that he remains in the standing position. He will quickly learn that no treat appears if he moves before he hears the click. If he moves, give the dog the opportunity to work the exercise out for himself so wait for a moment to see if he offers the stand again. Click and treat after a few seconds. If he is still struggling to understand what you are asking, it may be necessary to encourage him to stand again by offering the stand signal.

    Remember to use your stay cue.
