Heather Rae Posted February 3, 2012 Report Share Posted February 3, 2012 Tuesday has been picking up the basics, lay, sit, stay, sit when stopped on a walk, come, even roll over... but I can not seem to communicate "stand" with her. I've been working with the lure method, first luring her into the stand position and treat... Then using an empty hand and then treat. It seemed to be working, but if I don't automatically give her the treat she begins trying lay or sit. Part of this may be because the stand lure looks an awful lot like the lay lure. She responds both to the verbal and hand motion to lay, but hasn't picked up on the word "stand" and gets confused with the lure if the treat isn't given immediately. I've even tired patiently waiting for her to stand if she moves into the lay position, but this seems to frustrate her and I get the "Look Ma, I'm doing it can't you see" yelp. Plus I don't want to push further confusion when I want to move her into a prolonged lay. So help? Any ideas? Different methods? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
