How useful is the stay or wait command?
The stay or wait command can be used for more than making your dog stay in one place for long periods of time. It can be used to keep your dog still enough to wipe their feet, wash them, allow to open doors and put on collars and leashes.
It can also be used as a training tool to stop unwanted behavior, such as begging. If you command your dog to stay in the living room during your meal times, he will be unable to beg at the dining room table.
