Dog is now 20 months.....as long as I need...I guess.
Eating dinner...dog stays down.
Company is over...dog stays down...normally in this situation I release her after 5-10 minutes and let her enjoy the company.
Out on the deck having a beer or three....dog stays down
Longest no doubt is when I go to sleep and my dog does too... dog stays down...guess that doesn't count since I didn't request a down stay.
At first, I almost felt like I was punishing the dog putting her on extended down/stays...I'm a bit hyperactive so I probably imagined myself on an extended down/stay. I'm guessing if I were a dog and put on a down/stay...I'd be good for about 20 seconds......so I give my dog some credit.
