Stand and Back

Needing some help with Stand and Back. When trying to get her to back she backs and runs. Stand she just looks at me like I'm crazy, tried putting the leash under her belly and she turns into a fish flopping around on the bank. Help please.

You're going from a sit to stand?

We taught Inga to Stand from a Sit or a Down by saying Stand and lifting her into position, then praise. It didn't take long to teach, like a day. Then we added the hand signal to stand, which is a palm up hand and a lifting motion with the hand. She sits, down, stands, downs, sits, stands, comes at a gallop then waits in mid flight from an eighth of a mile off with hand signals. Its really fun. Back I have not taught her yet.

He prayeth well who loveth well
Both man and bird and beast;
He prayeth best who loveth best
All creatures great and small;
For the dear God who loveth us,
He made and loveth All.

Stand is pretty simple.The dog is sitting at heel,left hand pulls him gently forward by his collar,right hand in front of his nose that you move away as you take a step forward.He'll follow you and take a step forward along with you.Left hand goes quickly under his belly so he won't do the automatic sit.Stand!(The right hand moving horizontally away from his nose is our hand signal).
Then it's just distance,duration,and practising the stand in motion,etc.Never had need to teach back so maybe the above links will help.Good luck!

Micheal Ellis on the Leerburg.com site teaches a really nice stand from a sit. Pretty easy. Take the treat and right below the dogs nose,not so low as to coax a down, move it toward the collar area..straight back. They will almost always pop right up. His training with food DVD/Streaming video is a super way to train, I think.
