Lesson five is stay, stay means that your dog remains in whatever position he or she is in when you give the stay command. Be it sit, stand or even lying down. Starting with your dog on a leash in collar, have your dog at your left side. Say the sit command and praise your dog as usual. Say stay, while putting the palm of your hand to your dog's nose and move into the position directly in front of your dog toe-to-toe as shown before.
Wait five to ten seconds with your dog in the sit and stay position. After that time has elapsed, move back into position next to your dog. Practice this five to ten times successfully before moving on to the next step. The next step is to take one step back. Once your dog is successful and remaining in the stay position, when you have taken one step back, you can increase it to two, three, four and five steps until you are at the end of your six ft leash.
Each time, when you began training with the stay command, I want you to return to your dog. Once your dog has mastered this, and it is staying very reliably, you can occasionally use the come command. Your dog will learn to predict what you are going to do next. So try to mix it up, keep it fun. It's going to keep your dog's attention and make it more exciting and enjoyable for both of you.
So starting with my dog on a leash in collar. I am making sure to check that I have a positive attitude. We will work on the stay command, Shug, sit, good boy that's a good boy. So he is right next to me, nice and close. I am going to say stay, while putting my hand in front of his nose. Stay, and I just moved directly in front of him. That way if he started to get up, I can quickly move him back into the sit position. 100% compliance, 100% of the time, it's going to make you successful with all of your commands, especially with the stay command.
Once your dog has mastered this by staying in this position for several seconds and then returning, if you feel that it's necessary, you can again repeat the stay command before moving back into position next to your dog. That would be a lesson in stay. So once your dog has mastered it with you standing toe-to-toe with him, you are going to want to again say, stay and then take a step away from your dog. Good boy. Once your dog is good at doing it this way, you can take several steps back and keep continuing until you are at the end of your leash.
Each time, I want you to return to your dog like this. Again, if you feel it's necessary to repeat the stay command before returning to your dog, go ahead and do so. But you are going to want to lean off of that as soon as possible. So you remember Pausch, let's try the stay command with him. Stay, since Pausch seems to be successful at this distance, we will try it from a couple of steps away.
Again, I want to start where I put him in the sit position good boy. Stay and then move away. Now, if your dog is successful at this distance, you can keep taking several streps back until you are at the end of your leash and you can also add a light line such as a close line to your dog's collar. So that they learn that they have to stay no matter what your distance is away from them.
Sit, good boy, good boy. Stay. So as you can see, Pausch moved out a position, he was going to go into the down position which we will be covering next and I immediately corrected with a sound that I like to use. Ah, is a great one, you can also say -- it usually gets the dog attention and lets them know that they have done something wrong. I immediately put him back into the sit position and moved back to where I was. This is a proper correction technique.
