Teaching your dog to stay is a great way to get him to settle down, be patient and take better direction. It’s especially helpful for younger, hyper dogs that just can’t seem to sit still.
First you start in a sit, put you hand up like a stop sign and say “stay” in a confident voice. Don’t move back initially – just wait a few seconds. Then reward and release your dog by saying “ok” and encouraging them to move.
Repeat this but this time move one foot back, keeping your hand up. Then do it again but move both feet back, then 2 steps, 3, 4, etc.
Slowly keep moving back as your dog learns that it’s rewarding to stay.
