i need just a few tips on how to get my puppy to learn stay... I dont know if it is just because he is a really hyper puppy or what... I have been trying all week and he cant even stay in one spot for five seconds. I dont take a step back away from him yet. im just trying to get him to stay in a spot for five seconds and as his time increases i was going to increase the distance as well.. any adivce on how to teach him to stay??

Hi
(wow finally Im giving advice... lol)

My Glover is 14 weeks and has just mastered to stay for 30 sec! but I have to remind him as his attention span is low! (he is hyper too lol)

anyway, what I started with is to make him sit then I showed him a treat, I then put my other hand out and said stay and straight away gave him a treat. Then slowly I would wait with the treat a little longer, when he would stand up and walk away (does that all the time) I would just play with him for a bit then try again. I didn't start walking away from Glover untill he could stay (not go for the treat) for 10 sec then increast the distance and time.

I also tought him to sit and stay when I feed him, and now he does brilliantly (most of the time lol)annd waits for me to say ok.


anyway, hope that helps!

I remember Charlie's trainer trained him with the "sit" command first. Then having him sit, put a treat on the floor a few steps away from him. Then give him the "stay" command, if he goes for the treat, tell him no and repeat the "stay" word. Takes time, and yes he's too young. :hi:

Good advise all. Charlie's Mom, you are right. I remember at Puppy Kindergarden the trainer taught sit and stay. First you have them sit and have the sit command mastered. then you have them sit, and stay.

I second exactly what has been said. Have to get sit down first, then do it gradually according to what Glover's Mommy said. That's what I did.

Will be when he is a little older though. Still young for it.

Once he gets the basics of it, to get him to stay until you release him, you can even start taking him back to the spot and saying sit, stay again. Just keep taking him right back. That worked with Marley. If he kept leaving the spot, I took him back, pointed, said sit with the hand signal, then stay with the signal. he has this down now. I use this when feeding him. He stays until I give the signal to come over.
