Re: How do i teach down while moving?
Like a crawl? Or a Down in Motion?
For a crawl I just lure them forward from their down with a treat.
For a Down in Motion, I get them to walk with me on the left, and draw their nose down with a treat and give the command at the same time. As soon as they're down I treat and release in the beginning. I stop with them in the beginning. I incorporate my body language into it as well, so I usually drop my body on my left side at the same time as I give the command. I will also tug down with the leash to give more guidance.
To make it really solid once they get it I add in corrections.
