Your longest down stay
 
I was just wondering what some of your longest down stays were with your dog, please list the duration and the age of the dog

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.

I'm jealous! But...I can down my dinner and a few beers pretty fast, if needed, so those could be pretty short down stays for me.

Myah (14 months), about 20 minutes (because I forgot she was in a down stay). But I'm amateur! I was impressed with her, so we'll work on these more. I'm sure she can do longer - I just haven't done it with her.

Right now, she likes to burst in the boys' bedrooms for fun and play. So, she's working on a down stay while I open their doors and talk to them. She MUST wait in the hallway until I call her (not them calling her).

It would be interesting to also know the length of times people have their shepherd in a "sit" and completely focused, waiting for the next command, while we were doing other things.

We're working on that focus thing.

During someone else's BH routine my dogs have had to stay down upwards of 25 or 30 minutes depending on how slow the other person walks.

Oh goodness. I don't think it's possible to walk slow enough to make a BH last 30 minutes.

We are trying to get her use to staying in one for 3 hours, due to her service dog work, we would like to go to a movie one day, so far she's stayed in a heeled down stay for 2.5 hours at 6months old for 2 movies now, we're slowly getting there, first time she was already tired, second she very much wanted to get up, but didnt

When Karlo trialed for his BH, he was up with a Presa that walked extremely slow, Karlo had to stay down for at least 20 minutes. It was harder on me, Karlo was enjoying himself with paws crossed relaxed.
