That rarely happens as well without some specific behavior modification training. see

Ftrom agility tirals I now some that have been successful in using the following remote training device for rewarding a quite behavior when you leave them
gradual increasing duration,

Premier Pet Products

the remote allows you to reward the dog for being quite while still remaining out of site which and can use to extend the time the dog is quite. For example if the dog can remain quire for 5 second when you are out of site you can reward the dog a 3 second which restss the clock and reward at 3 then 4 the 2 and soon the dog has been quite for 1 seconds, It is an excelent way of building duration., If you have to return it really in not the same thing.
