Each of our dogs has a nice stay & wait command.
Beth struggles wth this the most. But she will do it when I ask, although sometimes I need to employ a nail gun and duct tape to get her stay in one place. Typical bouncy border collie.
Bonnie's stay is flipping fantastic. She even held her stay the other day when a man rolled over her tail with his wheel chair. She just freaked out a bit after the fact.
One of the reasons why I have so many fantastic shots of Brynn is her drop dead perfect stay & wait. Especially if she has the ball clutched in her paw.
We all know Ranger has a good stay. He poses like a champ whenever Camera Face is around.
He even holds still enough for me to get close up shots of his eye ball peepers.
Since all the dogs have a fairly good stay, why is it we do not have a good 'family' portrait?
I have struggled with this for months.
I have tried the damn clicker & treats.
I have tried crying, whimpering, pleading, begging. Nothing has worked.
I can get the girls to cooperate...they hold their stays in a group like a dream.
Then from out of nowhere he strikes!
Ranger, the Photo Bomb!
The looks on Bonnie and Brynn's faces say it all.
The girls stay put and give me a lovely smile...then PHOTO BOMB strikes again.
RANGER KNOCK IT OFF! STAY!
Now he stays....*facepalm*
