Sherlock finally learned the commands "sit" and "lie down". Yipeee!  thumbs up wooo 






Having difficulties making him "stay". (Sorry for the blur. He's too active to stay still. crying ) Any ideas?  thinking happy

Aww, well done to you and Sherlock! happy That's really good! Lovely pics as well! He looks like he's smiling!

For the stay, what methods are you using to train him? happy

Some dogs have a difficult time keeping still in one place, so it can take a little longer. It helps to build up the stay time gradually by only asking him to stay for a couple of seconds at first and then increasing that time as he becomes more comfortable with it.

Oh, well done! Beautiful pics, he's a real cutie!

As Eleanor says, just take it slowly with the Stay - just a couple of seconds extra each time!

Yes, using treats is a good method. Just make sure that when he starts to understand a command, you gradually reduce the treats until he doesn't need them at all.
