command michael kors bedford wallet black

The down command is the next lesson to teach in your dog obedience training
schedule. It should be taught as soon as you and your dog have mastered the sit
command. The down command is a fundamental ingredient of your overall dog
obedience training program. It provides the foundation for many other advanced
commandsskills and establishes you as the leader in the relationship you share
with your dog. The reason for this is that the laying down position is a
submissive and somewhat vulnerable position for your dog to be in michael kors
, especially when you are standing tall over the top of
your dog. The down command is a very handy tool you will come to rely on in many
situations. Popping your dog down into the lying down position is great for
times when you need to go into a shop or for occassions when there are small
children around. It can take a bit of practice to reach this level, but it is
worth the effort. Learning The Down Obedience Command When you are in the
learning phase of teaching the down command, start out by making it simple for
your dog, then slowly turn up the difficulty level. - Move your training
sessions to a public place. - Increase the time you keep your dog in the down
position. - Bounce a ball around your dog when he is in the lying position, or
scatter some food around him. The idea is that your "down" command will be so
strong in your dogs mind michael kors miranda leather
, that none of these other distractions matter. He can only
get up to chase the ball or eat the treats when you release him from the down
command. What you are trying to achieve with the down command is to have your
dog quickly get down into the laying position, belly touching the ground and his
front legs extended out in front. In a familiar environment to your dog with no
distractions, lets get started! Down Command Technique 1 - Off Leash - Put your
dog into a sitting position. - Grab your dogs favorite tasty treat and hold it a
couple of centimetres in front of hisher nose. Move your hand straight down to
the ground. Your dog should follow it down (you can praise and encourage him
down). As soon as his belly hits the ground, with his legs out in front, lavish
him with praise and give the treat. - Repeat this action over and over in short
sharp training sessions. - When your dog is "getting it" and going down right
away michael kors hamilton wallet
, you can add the verbal part of the command. I use "down"
other people use "lay" or "drop", just choose the one you are comfortable with
and stick to it (make it a one word command only). Add your command just before
you start to move the treat towards the ground. This step is all about building
an association in your dogs mind between the verbal "down" command and the act
of him laying down. - The idea is that eventually, after plenty of repetition
and praise your dog will only require your verbal command, and not the treat in
your hand to lure him down. Also, in time you will be able to start the command
not only from the sitting position but from standing and in any situation you
and your dog are in. - When your dog is responding well to your verbal
command michael kors fulton wallet
, introduce some other variables which make the down command
a little more challenging. Try the command as you go about your daily business,
around other people or dogs and increase the duration of the command. Down
Command Technique 2 - On Leash - Put your preferred collar and leash on your dog
- I just use a nice leather buckle collar when teaching the down command. -
Place your dog into the sitting position and stand or kneel right next to him. -
Basically you are trying to guide or coax your dog into the down position. How
you do this depends on the size and co-operation level of your dog. - Always say
your "down" command first, then immediately guide your dog down into the lying
position. Grab hold of the leash and gently pull your dogs head down, at the
same time guide him down by pressing down between his shoulder blades with the
palm of your hand. You can also lift up your dogs front legs and extend them out
in front of him, find the method which works best for you. Praise and encourage
your dog all the way down. Then of course as soon as he's in the down position
make it clear to him that you are happy with him and that he has done a good
job. - After lots of repetition your dog will respond to your verbal command
only. Then try the command when your dog is in the standing position and in
other settings. Make the command a little more challenging by adding some
distractions and increasing the time he is required to stay in the down
position. Whichever method you choose to teach your dog the down command be
consistent and keep at it. When you are happy with your dog getting into the
down position you will probably want to add a release command to it. This means
that when you issue your down command michael kors bedford wallet
, your dog goes straight down and is not permitted to get up
until you issue another command. You can use "away" or "off you go" for this
purpose. Author's Resource Box Chris Smith is a dedicated dog owner and creator
