Evie was a handful tonight. For the majority of our time she was easily distracted and unfocused, and we struggled to teach her Down, but eventually did. However, we then had to teach her Stay, and she wouldn't sit still for a second - literally! What I did then was stand still, not saying a thing, and just waited. When she would sit on her own I would click and treat. Finally she settled down and we were able to finish teaching her how to Stay for a full 30 seconds! It may not sound like much but it was quite the accomplishment for her.
