That's quite large for a female. Can you easily feel all her ribs and see the last one or two? When looking down on her from above, can you see a "waist"? When viewing her from the side, can you see...

Yes, the OP made a mistake. Maybe several mistakes. But I don't think it's fair to bash her for not knowing any better. The "breeder" who sold her the puppy should know the laws regarding age to...

If you don't see the need for your dog to have a down command, don't train one. That's entirely up to you. But yes, dogs competing in obedience do need to down on command and stay there until...
