here is the way I did it with Ruby lab - we clicker trained but the concept is the same

Make sure they know you have tasty treats and get them to sit in front of you

Then take a step back and if they dont move click (or praise) and treat

Keep doing this and gradually gradually increase the time - 10 seconds, 20 seconds etc etc then move back to 2 steps and start the same thing again.

Next stage would be turning sideways to them so you havent got your back to them but not the front so halfway house

Next stage would be walking around or out of sight or whatever you wish.

sorry I forgot to say - put the word in when they have successfully not moved about 10 times when you are one pace away. I also use the hand signal (palm up hand out front like a policemans stop sign)

Remember she is only still a baby and you must only keep your training to a couple of minutes at this stage. The way I have trained mine is to put them on the lead and have them sitting next to you. Keep the lead behind her head and hold it up (hope this makes sense) then say 'stay' and take a step to the side. Wait only a couple of seconds and then step back. If she is sitting then give her lots of praise and a little treat. Don't do it for more than a couple of times and build it up over a few weeks. When she is sitting well and knows what you mean then start standing in front of her. If she moves don't say anything and definately don't say 'no' you need to praise her when she gets it right and ignore her when she gets it wrong.

Don't expect too much to soon, little and often is fine otherwise they get bored.

Hope this helps it is how I trained mine.

P.S. The clicker is also very good but it is important to get the clicks in at the right time otherwise you can end up praising them for doing something wrong!
