Preparing your dog for stationary & duration-based training

Before working on Sit/Stay, Down/Stay, Place/Stay, or crate training for an extended period, burn some of your dog’s energy to be primed and ready for the practice. You can do so by playing tug of war, walking, jogging, fetching, puzzle games, etc. Any opportunity you can facilitate that will actively engage the dog physically and/or mentally will be ideal to ensure they will be more at ease and ready to work on the stationary, duration-based training.
