      Sit until released

      Murphy, 15 weeks Tuesday, will sit on command about 75 to 80% of the time right now. I'm working on getting him to wait in a sit until I release him. How long is appropriate to keep him sitting while he's learning this? He can do it both on and off lesdh for about 4 or 5 seconds right now.

      Utilizing a place board will aid in your training effort for said behavioral objective.

      Yup. You want to have him hold it until it is challenging but still achievable for him. As it becomes less of a challenge, you can increase the time to make it more so. Depends on the individual dog what they will find challenging with this or any other exercise, so there really isn't a specific answer based on age.

      And if you don't want to build a place board, many people we train with (in Obedience not field but same idea) use a small piece of rubber mat or foam tile to give them a specific spot to wait on. Probably wouldn't work as well outside on lumpy ground as a place board, but is cheap and easy and serves the same purpose.
