STAY is another command that every dog should know. Building on SIT, stand beside your dog with the leash taunt, held straight above his head. Incorporate hand signals and place your open palm in front of dog's nose. Say STAY and move in front of your dog to block his forward movement. If he moves, repeat hand signal and STAY command. If he stays, move back next to him, make him hold his STAY for a few seconds, praise and treat. As with each dog training technique, continue to slowly increase increments of distance and hold time with each training lesson. An additional element when training your dog to STAY is the three D's. Duration, Distraction, and Distance. As I just mentioned, it is important to slowly increase the increments of Duration and Distance but Distraction must be introduced to test your dogs understanding of this command. Be sure to add distraction while training your dog before the distance gets too long. Common distractions would be someone entering the training area with a toy, another dog walking by, etc.
It isn't a stretch to say that as long as there have been human culture and civilization, dogs have been part of it. When society was agricultural, dogs were important in protecting livestock and herding sheep and cows. But as people began to realize how easy it was to train dogs, they began to be used in other agricultural chores as well as in military and police functions. Then dogs were bred and trained for the very purpose of serving people's working need: Hunting, herding, protection and pulling.
Canine Good Citizen Training – The Canine Good Citizen training for dogs is the final course. In order to pass this course, your dog will be taught the 10 essential aspects. This course has strict entry criteria and is meant for those dogs and owners that have completed all the previous courses. The tests for this course are tough and your dog will only be passed if he is very well behaved. The length of this particular course depends on how quickly it takes your dog to be ready and passes the required tests. Bearing this information in mind should enable you to make an informed decision about what training course will be best for you and your dog. It may be worth your while to seek the opinion of a local professional trainer who may be able to help you with your decision. Most quality dog trainers will give you and your dog a first consultation for free.
