    Maxx will stand beautifully for me but Charlie - well, he's a nightmare Stand means sit. Sit means wag tail etc, etc, etc. He does know how to do them all and what they all mean but if he's in one of his moods or he sees the grooming brushes I might as well talk to him in Japanese

    My rally instructor showed me a real cool way of teaching my dogs to stand. With the dog sitting in front of you facing you. VERY SLOWLY inch towards them. The dog will stand. If he doesn't stand, he knows you will step on him. As soon as he stands, click and treat. You don't want to move quickly because you don't want to freak them out, but if you move slowly and carefully, they will stand. I have been trying to lure them in a stand with no effect. Gem was standing in no time flat. (I hope this explanation makes sense, if it doesn't I'll try to figure out how to download a video)

    My challenge is getting Abby to move so I don't run her over with my wheelchair....she's getting it, slowly but surely.
