Day 2: Drop on Recall

Do a quick “offered downs” session. After your dog eats the treat, is he immediately going into a Down or is he thinking other thoughts first? If he is immediately going down, you can go on to the next step. If he’s hesitating or offering other behaviors, stay at this stage, possibly making a few modifications to your training sessions.

Part II:
Get 2-3 offered downs. Slowly move backwards. So slowly! Your dog will ofter a down. Click, and reinforce in position, then encourage your dog to get up. Repeat. Many times. Gradually increase your speed.
