    Defaultteaching stand

    I can not teach Bentley to stand. It is a requirement to teach them to stand for 4-H and the judge comes around and check there coat,teeth ect.. Well Bentley does not want to stand. The 4-H leader told us to put a small pressure on there belly and when I do that Bentley freaks out and snaps. I was working with him in the yard and he just did not like it. When I get him to stand he doesn't want to stay there standing he sits down!! Any tips? Those who do dog shows how do you get your dog to stand there while the judge checks them over?

    When he's sitting, hold a treat infront of his nose and lure him into a stand. To teach him to stay in a stand, you might have to gentely hold your hand under his belly while you say "Stay" and let him nibble the treat. Don't do it like you're holding or pushing him up, just lightly touch him. Also, a bigger piece of treat for him to nibble on will keep him standing longer.

    eta- Meant to include, as he gets the hang of it, have him stand/stay a little longer. Also, do the same exam your instructor will be doing, and, if you can, ask other people to do it, too (or at least ask them to run their hands from the top of his head and down his back).
