Use the "Down" Cue when you need your dog to be still for an extended time. Down is great for when guests first arrive, while you have a conversation with someone while out for a walk, while you eat dinner, and more.
If your dog gets up from the Sit before going Down, start over at Step 1. Email us for help if you're struggling.
Practice on-leash in different rooms inside your home this week. Next week, do it outside with more distractions.
Don't gve up on this exercise! Your dog will learn that following cues is optional Stick with it until they get it
