Learning how to train your dog to stay on command is easy to do. Follow the steps outlined below and in the video and soon  your dog will be waiting at the door until you give them the release word to go out and play.

Step 1-  Get some food rewards and call your dog to come to you..if he sits that is fine, this exercise is about staying in one place.

Step 2-  Hold your hand in front of your dogs face like you were stopping a car, and say in a serious tone of voice, “Stay” and take one step back..then immediately step back to your dog and give him the reward.

Step 3-  Repeat the stay command and take two steps back, and immediately step back in and give the dog the reward.

Step 4-  Repeat the stay command and take three steps back and come back in and give the dog the reward.

If at anytime your dog breaks the stay command, say, “NO” in a tone of voice that tells your dog you know he can do better and calmly put him back into position and work the exercise again.

Once your dog begins to understand what you are asking him to do, then you can increase the amount of time he has to stay put in order to get you to come to him and give the reward.
