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?
