Position foundations - Lilith

Today Lilith is learning a few very important exercises. These are called “positions” and these are hard for such a busy dog because they require stillness!  

I’m slowly conditioning in a name for each position as I feel the criteria is being met by choice (without excessive luring).  

My initial goals are a Tuck sit, a Folding down, and a Kick back stand. Once in the initial position I’m looking for stillness. Then I will require handler focus. 

I regularly add a “get it” cookie toss to help break the monotony and shake out some of the tension given by stillness.
