The Importance of the Stay

While not as obvious as Sit or Lie Down, Stay may very well be the most important command your dog learns. After all, there will likely be times you want your dog to remain where he is, such as when a new guest arrives at the door. But there may be times when knowing the Stay command can save your dog's life. Imagine if he starts to chase a ball into a busy street, or begins running after a dangerous animal. At any rate, Stay should be taught as soon as possible, and practiced frequently.

Prerequisites
While it's important to teach Stay early, let's stop and think for a moment. From the human perspective, we think of "stay" as "freeze," or "don't move." And ultimately, you want you dog to understand it the same way. However, don't expect that right away. Dogs see things more literally that we do, so it's easier to teach Stay as an extension of another command, like Sit. Once your dog understands the idea of Stay after he has responded to Sit (the "sit-stay"), you can branch out into the "down-stay," and finally the standing stay. You would have a much harder time if you started with the standing stay, which is typically the toughest one to master. Generally, though, once your dog grasps the standing stay, he has understood that "stay" is universal.

So, make sure your dog has learned to sit on command, then move on to the Stay.

Glen of Imaal Terrier
Recently we rescued of Glen of Imaal from our local SPCA. She is 4 yrs old and is a very focused little girl. A mind of her own, not real affectionate, but very loyal at the same time. She has trained me well.

Akita
I've owned 2 male Akitas. They've both been very healthy, low maintenance, friendly to humans, have lived with other pets but are NOT good with other males. Don't require a great deal of exercise.. A walk twice a day is plenty. Mine chew ice cubes after a walk. Neither of them showed any real interest in chewing anything else, but this has proven to keep their teeth and gums healthy and it's kind of funny, too. Can't sing their praises enough. Wonderful family membe

Coton de Tulear
My frenid Joan in My frenid Joan in Toronto was featured on Dogs With Jobs in Canada about 10 years ago. She had´╗┐ a standard poodle named Morgan as her narcolepsy service dog, and to our knowledge he was the first in the world. Joan now has Shaba as her service dog. Because the collapses in narcolepsy are actually paralysis (cataplexy) rather than sleep, Shaba's job is to drag her to a safe place when she's going to collapse, and stand over her and protect her while she's down.
