This command is often paired with sit or down,
the stay command tells dogs to relax,
and stay still for a while
It’s not the easiest command
for many dogs to learn
because they’d rather be
moving around than staying still


Ask your dog to sit or lie down,
then tell her stay, holding your hand out
with your palm toward her nose in the stop position
If she holds the position for a second or two,
praise her and offer a treat
Repeat the sequence, gradually increasing the time
