Teach your dog to stay

* Cue your dog to sit.
* As he performs the action, withhold the CLICK / PRAISE for a few seconds.
* CLICK / PRAISE and reward.
* Repeat the behaviour gradually increasing the length of time before you CLICK / PRAISE and reward.
* Once he can hold the position for about 10 seconds, cue him to sit, take a step away, return, CLICK / PRAISE and reward.
* Once he is reliably offering this behaviour every time, you can start to add the verbal “STAY”command or visual hand signal.
* As he learns the verbal command or visual hand signal, start to reduce the treats until he can perform the behaviour on the verbal command or visual hand signal only.
