Hoping some one can help me out with a suggestion or two concerning the stand as I have been trying several things to no avail: I initially worked with Coda on her stand after the sit and down when she was much younger. I stopped working the stand a few months before her BH as I wanted to ensure that she was solid on only the commands for the BH. The last couple of weeks I have been reintroducing the command while working the obedience routine. I was actually convinced that she understood the command as she would stand in motion, stand while running and when I told her to stand while throwing the kong - no problem. A couple of days ago I was working with her, I was giving random commands - Down to sit, Sit to Down, Down to Stand - she acted as if she had no clue on the down to a stand command. Not a fluke - as I have tried this numerous times over the last couple of days. Maybe I'm just over analyzing this but I'm wondering if I mistakenly taught her the word for stand - means stay, don't move. In SchH/IPO this would not be a concern, because she does stand (stops all forward motion and remains still on the stand in motion and running) but if I want to do Ring with her it will be a problem. Any suggestions?
