Google+ PetsVentura® : TRAIN YOUR DOG TO STAY

TRAIN YOUR DOG TO STAY


Step1Be sure your dog understands a release command, such as "free" or "okay," before teaching this command.

Step2
Have your dog sit or lie down in front of you.

Step3
Place your hand, palm open, in front of your dog's nose and give the command "Stay."

Step4
Say "Good" at the exact moment your dog exhibits the behavior you want.

Step5Give the release command immediately after (within 1 to 2 seconds), followed by treats and unlimited praise.

Step6
Reward your pet even if she only "stayed" for 1 second; and always offer rewards for even slight indications of understanding.

Step7
Lengthen the amount of time your pet remains in the stay position very gradually and slowly move farther away.

Step8
Remember to give the release command after every successful "stay" as you increase the length of time your dog must remain in the position.

Step9
Avoid going into another room until your dog fully understands the command.

Step10
Train in 5-minute sessions.


Good Luck,
