Value of “Sit Stay”

Good Dogs! (10-05-2015) #6047: Lise Pratt from Avidog gives a perspective on “Sit Stay” and how most of us don’t recognize that the “stay” should be implied in every “sit” until you release the dog! She explains how the stay is reinforced by dispensing an incredible rate of treats. We need to get our dog to understand the concept of being released. Dog needs to form a picture of what the behavior is.
