Stand-by? Stand and Wait? Base Position?
What is it?
You know when you see those dogs that offer everything, dancing feet, and never slow down enough to actually “listen”? You know the dogs that sniff there way back to you after eating the tossed treat?
Here is your solution. Train the wait and listen. Teach the dog what you expect after eating that treat. For me, I want an orientate to the handler, make eye contact and be still. This is for obedience, in tracking and in protection, where the emphasis is not on me, I want a different type of standby.
