Get some tips and tricks to helping your dog become a well-obedient and well-trained dog. Watch this video tutorial to see how to teach your dog to "lay down".
Take some dog treats and your dog into a quiet room. Hold a treat just in front of your dog's nose. Slowly draw it down and between your dog's front legs, towards the ground. Don't give any commands at this stage. If your dog has a hard time with this, hold the treat under a chair or table where he'll have to lay down to get to it. Repeat until your dog is lying down quickly when he sees the food move.
