How do I teach my dog to "stand"

I attempted shaping and i'm not sure if I'm doing it right. I give no formal stand command. She just knows I have a treat in my hand and i put her int he sit command. and the moment she takes her butt off the ground I say "yes" and treat her. However, when she finally stands, she standing to go after the reward. So I'm concerned that I'm shaping her biting at my hand for a treat rather than the act of standing. Any suggestions?

Re: How do I teach my dog to "stand"

I used a clicker with Cody who got it within 5 miutes when he was younger. I would have him sitting and move the treat so his butt comes off the ground, I would then click for just his butt lifting up. Then after a few clicks for only the butt coming up, I would only click when he was farther up. Then I would click when he was fully standing. I taught this to him when he was under 6 months. I also shaped how he stand after he understood the command. I have both my dogs stand with there back feet coming up from under them as there front stays in position. Makes a faster stand.
I've seen some people use a leash around their mid section and when they say stand they lightly tighten the leash up and the dog naturally stands. But I guess you use whatever works.
As a game to make sure they really know the commands, I say sit, down, stand, down, sit, stand, etc.
