Mighty demonstrates the kick-back-standIn the video clip I show you how to teach your dog a kick back stand. A kick back stand is where the front feet stand still and the back legs move out into a standing position. Kickback stands are the preferred way to teach your dog to move to a stand position as it keeps the dog from creeping forward.

The kickback stand can be used for the Stand for Exam, moving stand and signal stand exercises. I am teaching Mighty on the platform, and this demonstration shows you the value of using the platform for this particular exercise.
