Training Your Dog to Lie Down on Command

You can get your dog to settle down when he will lie down on command. This position helps him understand that it is time to relax. Training your dog to lie down on command starts when he is sitting. Thus ensure that he dog reliably obeys the SIT command. Start with your dog sitting and hold a treat in front of his nose. Move the treat down and out in front of his feet. He will need to stretch out and lie down to keep following the treat. Say your dog’s name followed by the DOWN command. Once your dog approximates a lying down position, give him the treat and lots of praise. Practice this procedure often. As he becomes reliable in obeying the DOWN command, hesitate before giving him the treat. Gradually reduce and then eliminate the treats. Then your dog will lie down on your command and praise alone.
