The general idea is command before lure so he downs ahead of the lure, then you can fade it. Don't rush to it though. I like to do a lot of reps with only the lure at a quick pace and moving around, not being static. At some point he'll start going into downs on his own, offering it. That's when I add the command. The best visual on it, or technique I like the best is Ivan's treat chasing. Personally I think its fine with a dog or puppy. That's one of the benefits of motivation training, you can start it and do things over a lot.
