Test Your Skills: Challenge #6

Hello, and Happy Easter!

It has been over a month since issuing our last challenge :). This month, we'll take it a bit easy, and challenge you and your dog to Stand-Stays.

1. Ask your dog to "Stand" (simply standing up with all 4 paws on the ground), and then say "Stay." Hold the stay for 15 sec inside.

2. While out on a walk, say "Stay," and then wait 10 sec before continuing to move. Only move forward if your dog completed the whole stay (ie, no movement :) ).

3. While your dog is in a Stand-Stay, place a treat under his/her stomach. Success = not eating the treat!

Good luck with practicing these exercises! Hope to see you in class soon!

Happy Training,
Teacher's Pet
