Stay is pretty common command, but its not as easy as sit or come, especially not for puppies. Puppies just hate to stay still, they want to move around and explore everything. But with patience and frequent training, it is possible to learn your dog to stay!
It is important, that your dog already know commands like sit, lie down or come before you start with Stay. Start the training with putting your dog into sitting position. After that, say the word „Stay“ and put your hand infront of your dog, with your palm facing towards him. Wait just a few seconds, even three seconds are great when you just started and after that give your dog a big praise and treat reward. Gradually, but slowly increase the distance of the stay, but dont ask your dog for too much too early.
If your dog breaks the stay, dont shout at him. Just dont give him praise or reward and try it again, but lower the time and length of the stay. Be very patient, it is the key to succesfully teach your dog this command.
