I'm trying to teach my pup to "down" (lay down) but she looks at me like I'm an alien! She mastered "sit" within minutes, and now whenever she wants a treat she sits and looks at me with those big eyes saying "look mummy, I can sit, now where is my treat?"
To get her to lay down I start with sit then lower the treat to the floor, but she's not stupid - she bends her head down towards the treat. Why bother with the effort of laying down when you can just bend down! I've tried various things, including trying to gently push her down, and sliding her front feet out, but she doesn't respond to anything.
Has anyone got any tips for the "down" command?
