I got the tip from another member of the forum but we started by making her wait for her food by not letting her have her food until she sat and waited. Once she understood what wait was we started doing wait with a treat in front of her and slowly got it closer and closer till we got it on her paw.
That's great! We taught Ozzy that too and in our obedience class the other day the trainer had us working on having the dog "wait" as a door opened and we walked out first. She was SO impressed with how quick he got it and when we explained he knows that command she couldn't believe he would wait for his food and treats (especially because like yours, Ozzy is SO food motivated). Gotta love our smarty pants Goldens!
I'd say give it a try! My pup mastered this trick in about 15 minutes and he is VERY food motivated! Heaven only knows why this one clicked so well, I've been working on OFF (for the counters) about 800 times a day to no avail. Well, I take that back- he'll get off, but then he jumps right back up again! Ay yay yay!
