Some stay (and release) refreshing

The Pigs Fly article in the March 2010 issue of Clean Run was interesting in that it was all about training the release out of a stay. I usually reward the release almost as much as I reward the actual lack of motion. Today, though, I concentrated on the release from a stay with both dogs (different sessions).

Mika was perfect for all 3 reps. She blasted out of the stays and literally slid to a stop each time, hahah (we were inside). Mika slides when she's chasing toys too. I'll throw a toy and she'll do this huge slide across the floor as she grabs her toy with tons of enthusiasm.

Wall-e was perfect too, which was also pleasantly surprising because he's always been one to sometimes break his stays.
