How do I teach my dog basic obedience commands like stay and wait?

Asked a year ago

I'd just like to teach my dog how to stay when I tell him to stay. it's always a struggle cos he is attached to my hip most of the time. How do I start?

You can start by giving your baby a simple hand signal with the palm of your hand facing your dog and use the terms “stay” or “stop”. Do not give your dog a treat or praise right away, wait a few seconds and say “stay” again and then give them the reward. It's important to reward your dog while they're still lying down, and not if they've got back up. A clicker can help aid in this training as well.
