PostSubject: Training stand from down   Mon 18 Oct 2010, 10:42 pm

Is anyone working on this at the moment in training classes?

I just wondered how you were getting on and how long you have been working on it? We have been working on it for a few weeks now but Reuben still refuses to do it without a treat? I am using a treat with a hand signal but he will not do it just with the hand signal.

We have tried to work on it at home but there are too many distractions and usually Chloe sticks her nose in so we are only working on it once a week at class

Hi Jo

I havn't done this as of yet but i find taking my pups and others to the local park one at a time to work on their obedience works wonders. If i work on them at home it just doesn't work even in a different room

I havent really trained enzo this specifically but what I usually do is pull him forward gently by the collar and say stand at the same time and he does it.

I only do it so I can clean his back legs if he is sat down lol!

So sorry not sure of the proper way to do it.

I am OK at doing it Selena, its just Reuben cannot seem to get to grips with the command and we still have to rely a lot on treats.

I was wondering if anyone else had done it or was working on it how their dogs were managing?

Daisy is working on that 1st week today and she does it everytime, if they don't do it the 1st time we tell them "try again" if she still wont do it we then help them into the position you want them in and reiterate "Stand" we then say "Yes" excited voice lol.

So what I do with daisy is down "yes" then "stand" "yes" like I said at 1st she would come out of down and sit but she learnt in one lesson what she needs to do.

PS why is it a problem relying on treats? Until he gets it right everytime 1st time then thats the way to go.

Normally after a couple of weeks on most commands he has an inckling of what he should be doing. At the moment without a treat he just stares at me blankly even though I have been doing a hand signal with the command. He does not ackowledge the hand signal at all.

With the treat he is straight up and into a perfect stand, I think it is the smell of the chicken.

I suppose I am used to him picking things up a lot quicker which is why I was curious as to how others were picking it up
