After reading another thread, I thought "Oh crud, Sabo has learned 'down' after 'sit'...better fix that" so off to the back yard we went! He will do anything with treats but he absolutely loves his rope toys, so I had to figure out how to incorporate that. This is the first 3 minutes of trying out "down" independent of any other command, so bear with us! I think it's pretty dang good for him especially since "down" has never been his best command.
Be kind---keep in mind we did this in just the time I was videoing.
