Stay is a hard thing for dogs to do, especially a Sit Stay. For extended stays like the Down it helps to put the dog in a really comfortable position...laying on their side/head on the floor....nap time.

The Stay position is often reinforced with praise and treats while in the Stay position. For creeping (which is usually towards the handler) the treat is placed behind the dog. That way, the reward doesn't comes from behind...not the front.
