We do this where I train. I don't tend to do it seriously because my girl Emma is very sensitive to collar pressure. A year ago she was still learning to tolerate a leash period. But we put them in sit stays, and tug on the leash, swing the leash like a jumprope in both directions etc to proof the stays. They are corrected if they break, but its a quick verbal correction and then you put the dog back into position, repeat the stay command, and start over. When they stay, you treat or praise.
