Going to Place and Stay

I have been trying to get the beast Hexe obedience trained. She is such an enthusiastic student, picks everything up so quickly, however the 'stay' command needs work. Her attention span while in 'stay' mode is short and she is anxious to do something a little more exciting. To combat this I have been working her on the 'place' command, basically performing a sit/down stay on an object...stools, grooming box, mat, and this time a chair. This method has helped to stop her from creeping towards me during the stay. Occasionally we add distractions :-)
