In training class we have been working on stand for exam. The trainer told us to have a treat in our hands, hold it so the dog has to work to get it, and tell them to "stand"--rewarding them with praise and then the treat when they do so. Jack is having a bit of trouble with this. He will actually stand, but I'm not sure if he's actually understanding that this is what he is supposed to do because he is SOOO excited about the treat right in front of his nose. He is *extremely* food motivated. So much so that we feed right before class and use Sally's kibbles instead of actual treats to bring the insanity down a notch. He also does not stand still. Be cause the treat is so exciting, he wags like crazy, causing his back end to sort of migrate. He is wiggling so much that nobody could actually examine him if he were standing with a treat in front of him and if he didn't have the treat to distract him he would be ubber excited just that someone was touching him. I'm happy that he loves people so much but this makes teaching him to stand still for exam very challenging. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to how to teach this????
