Train your dog to stay. Solve a Bunch of Dog Problems
Dog problems such as:
- Counter surfing
- Getting your pizza off the table
To train your dog to stay in a sit, down or “on their place” you must first build time on staying. This happens before you add distance or any pesky distractions.
In this video I going to walk you through the steps and the basic principles of building time when you train your dog on the stay command.
I am assuming your dog already knows how to do a sit, and a down, and hopefully to go place.
Once you have that down, you start training to get him to hold that stay command for longer periods of time.
Now in this video I used our dog Sophie who already knows the routine of sit, down, place.
All our dogs know that routine.
The Biggest Roadblock to Success in Teaching The Stay
Everybody does it. Do you?
You don’t build the length of the stay command in incremental steps praising for success.
Instead say stay, and expect a 10 or 15 or even 30 second stay before the dog is ready.
You have just now set your dog up to fail instead of succeed.
Building the Duration of Holding the Stay
Once you’ve trained your dog to stay and hold, that is when you slowly start adding distance from your dog followed by adding distractions.
Be sure to read how to use the stay command at the front door . I linked to it in the video and here so you can get more stay commands like the place command.
