WEEK ONE Training Suggestion - "Stand"

It can be helpful in skijoring to have a dog that will Stand, Stay, and Line Out on command. So we probably need to start with the STAND.

Here is a link to an online instruction, or you may know how to teach it (but just haven't bothered):

Once you have taught Stand, then move on to Stay. This will be something you can do in the house, and also do outside, long before you think about putting your dog in a harness. It will (should) also help you put your dog in a harness if they will Stand-Stay for you. Next time I'll give some links for working on a Line Out, which is a fairly unique command to skijoring and dog sledding.

A few minutes each day where the session ends with the dog being successful is better than a long grueling session that can be frustrating.

I challenge everyone to put updates on how their dog(s) is doing with Stand, and Stand-Stay over the next week or two...
