and if that doesnt work..say he wont down. u could always sit on the floor and bend your leg to where he can barely fit underneath..show him the treat, have him walk under ur leg, but keep ur leg low enough to where he has to lay down, when he's in the down postion, reward. repetition after repetition, short sweet and funOriginally Posted By: ZeusGSDYup. Hold the treat in the palm of your hand and keep saying "down" in a positive voice. The second puppy's elbows hit the deck open your hand and mark it with clicker/voice. Repeat 100 times throughout 4-5 day period.
