Here are questions related to Teaching Your Dog to Stay.
In our beginner dog obedience class, we don't recommend calling the dog to release from the "stay" command until the dog is pretty strong on the stay. We have beginners return to their dog and THEN release and give a treat. I agree 100% to praise the dog with "joy" in your voice. Dogs really respond to that but for some people it takes practice.
