Getting Buddy to stand at heel on signal

You give the signal with your left hand, from right to left. Your palm is down and parallel to the ground, above and ahead of the dog's eyes.

The Stand isn't a very exciting or motivating exercise for your dog, so we don't recommend practicing it more than five times during a session. And always follow it with something your dog likes.
