I use "stay" and "wait" (which may be counterproductive because of the long A sound?) I train the wait with dinner, then with stairs. I want a dog to wait at the top of the stairs until I am at the bottom (imagine carrying a baby or using a cane and getting bumped). The stairs wait is very short and easy even for a hyperenergetic or young dog. You don't even need the clicker, most dogs, esp puppies, respond to your hand held out or a wave of the had. I also love the idea of a standing stay. Sometimes you don't want your dog to lie down on that broken glass, or because if he sits first his front paws might end up in a bad place. Also, some dogs have been trained so methodically that theywill not lie down or stay unless you put him into a sit first.
