Labrador Lulu and the Stay command

The first time I met* Lulu and her new owner in October they had come to refresh obedience training.

Lulu & Mom

Yesterday I met Lulu again. Her mum told me that Lulu is a wonderful dog and they get together very well

*Lulu is Now Is an eight year old Yellow Labrador. She is very friendly, with a non stop wagging tail and happy smile.

Lulu was adopted (from home where she was no loner wanted) by very lovely lady who lost her husband a couple months ago…

The only things that bothers mum is that Lulu gets very exited when the door bell ring and visitors come into the house.

Mum doesn’t know what to do …

After Mum left me with Lulu, I started practicing the Sit-Stay and Down-Stay commands from a distance. Lulu had already been through obedience training with me before. At first she tried to break commands but by the end of the day she was doing everything very well.

Mom will practice it with Lulu at home and ask her neighbors to help her by becoming her “visitors”

When the door bell rings, Lulu’s mum will make Lulu down- stay before going to open the door. When people will come in they will ignore Lulu but after while Mum will release Lulu.

Next Time Lulu will learn the Place command and Stay -Place.

After she has learnt these, when door the bell rings Mum will then just send Lulu to her Place to stay until the time is right for Mum to release her.

Dog in Place

When you tell your dog go to the Place: The Dog should cease whatever activity it’s engaged in and go to a prearranged place.

Put down a mat, blanket, bathmat, pillow or something else for your dog to lie down.

Put the collar on your dog and get your leash ready.

Have plenty of treats readily available.

Put a teat down on the mat, toward the back edge farther away from the dog.

Take your dog a foot away from the mat and slack up on the leash.

Say PLACE and let your dog go to get the treat. Have it sit or (better) go down and tell him Stay Place, after a few second praise and then release it.

Practice regularly and gradually move further away from the mat.

Soon you will able to send the dog to its PLACE from anywhere in the house.
