Teach Your Dog Down

beagle downWhen you feel it is time to teach your dog to down, you’ll be glad for it.  This is one of the most useful lessons you can give him.  A canine who lies down on command is one who is showing great respect for his owner.  It is also useful to help desensitize a dog’s fears and calm hyperactivity.   Moreover, a pooch in the “down” position poses less of a threat to strangers.

Here is a simple teach your dog to down technique you can use to educate your pet:

Step 1 – Take your companion to a quiet room and bring along treats and a clicker (if you want to use clicker training).

Step 2 – Standing in front of your dog, hold a treat directly in front of your pet’s nose.  Gradually move it
