Think of stay like a muscle – it takes time to build and needs a lot of practice to stay strong and reliable. When we say “Stay,” we are asking our dog to remain in that position until released. This is usually done in a down or sit position. Before starting this exercise, ensure your dog has a solid “down” or “sit” behaviour on cue.
