Teaching The “Wait” Command on The Field

Shelley Stubbington demonstrates how to teach your dog the basic “wait” command using their food bowl.

Though she is starting outside in the practice yard, you will want to start out in the house with minimal distractions.

Once your dog is performing consistently inside you will then move outside and start from the beginning as Shelley explains.

Then you will be ready to add the distractions of time, distance and finally obstacles to proof your wait with your dog.

And while not every dog benefits from a start line stay, all dogs should learn the wait command for other situations such as the front door or feeding time.
