Teaching Buddy to stand still The handsoff method

Your Sequence 3 goal is to get your dog to stand still without holding him in position:

1. Place Buddy into a Stand (see "Teaching Buddy the 'Stand' command" earlier in this chapter).

2. Take away your left hand.

Reposition him if he moves.

4. Praise and then release.

5. When he's steady without you holding onto him with your left hand, take your right hand out of the collar.

It will take Buddy several sessions to learn this sequence.

Praise is a verbal thing — not a petting thing. When you praise Buddy, be sure that he remains in position. Praise tells him he's doing something correctly and isn't an invitation to move. Don't confuse verbal praise with the release.
