Step 1: Lure the stand

0%

Option 1: Lure from a sit

With your dog in a seated position, bring a treat from their nose (palm facing your dog’s nose) slowly moving the treat away from their nose in a straight line.

Option 1: Lure from a down

With your dog in a down position, bring a treat from their nose (palm facing your dog’s nose) slowly moving the treat away from their nose in a straight line and slightly higher than their nose.

Keep the treat lure close to your dog’s nose—if you move your hand up too quickly or too far away from their mouth, they may jump up, back up, or give up.

As soon as your dog is standing, stop luring immediately (to prevent walking forward) say “yes!” (or click) and release the treat for them to eat while they are still in the standing position. 

You can cue and reward a sit or down to reset. 

Note:
If your dog sits when you mark, simply lure them back into a stand and release the treat.

Repeat 4 more times for a total of 5 repetitions.

Push, drop, or stick.
