I am working on training my boyfriend's dachunds to stay. He has 3 and I have been working with one at a time. It is definitely difficult for them to pay attention when the others are crying and barking in the other room. I am not sure what to do about that. If I put them outside they will do the same thing. The house is kind of small too so even if we were to go in a different room the dog I am working with would still hear the others. But that is not the only issue. I just plain am having trouble teaching this command. The way I am trying to do it (maybe I am doing something wrong here) is I have them sit right in front of me at first then wait for a second before clicking and rewarding them for keeping still. Then I do it again but this time wait a couple more seconds. If I could get them that far I would then slowly expand the amount of time then take a step backwards and wait a couple of seconds before clikcking. They just do not seem to get it at all. They won't keep still. They just instantly get up and start moving around again. Am I going about this the wrong way? What can I do to help them understand what it is that I want? And it is not just because they are distracted by the other dogs. I think they wouldn't stay still anyways. Need some help here. Thank you ahead of time to everyone who replies! It is very much appreciated! PS What is the difference between the commands "stay" and "wait"?
