- Cast your vote for which answer you think is best!
first don't remove her from the rope get it and while holding the rope go in front of her. about 6 inches and tell her to "sit" one's she sits, use your finger . put it in from of her nose and say "stay" if she does not move praise her and give a treat.
if she does move keep practicing and remember to stay patience, and keep trying until she gets it. also remember that training a dog can take days even weeks. and if she keeps listening to you when you say "stay" try to do it without a rope...well GOOD LUCK and hope this helped. :)
Be positive and use toys or food as rewards. Keep her on the leash or rope until she has completely grasped the concept and is able to perform it multiple times without hesitating more than two seconds. Use a hand signal as well as a voice command, and always use the same ones so you don't confuse your dog. If your dog is younger, have shorter, more frequent training sessions to keep the dog from getting bored.
At two months old your puppy is way too young to expect it to stick with you without a leash. You are expecting way, way too much too fast.
Enroll in a good obedience class... that will help in her socialization as well as help teach you to train her to stick with you and to come when you call her. In the mean time, keep her on a leash until she comes all of the time when she is called... any less and you will be putting her in danger of running off and getting injured by a car or something like that.
Enjoy her puppyhood and play with her lots... too soon she will be all grown up!
