Commanding Your Dog to Stay
If you call your dog's name in your command voice and follow his name with the word stay - (Fido, stay!) - you will have transformed those words into a command that indicates to your dog that he is to:
- Remain in his present location, as well as
- remain in his current posture until he receives further instructions.
