Basic Dog Training Tips : How to Train a Dog to Lie Down
Hi, I’m Jim Leske, animal trainer with Expert
Village. Today we’re talking about some basic
commands and this particular one is down.
In the down, we always use this when we are
from starting in the sit position and so Bear
is already sitting so good sit, Bear. See
he’s a little distracted. Now what I’m going
to do is I’m going to make the letter L as
in lie down with him, down, very good boy,
very very very very good, very good. Simple
trick, there is that if I make the L too big,
he’s going to walk towards it, if I make the
L too short, he’s just going to bend over
and pick it up so those are your things not
to do. We’ll do this one more time. Bear,
up, very good boy, sit, very good boy, down,
very good, good down, very very very good.
So that’s down. I’m Jim Leske and we’ll be
back with coming when called right after this.
