Dog Lay Down Training

Introduction

Training dogs to lay down is a useful command that can be beneficial in a number of settings; in the home, at the veterinarian's, when visiting other people, or when you and your dog are around other animals. Follow these steps below, and your dog will learn how to lay down in no time.

Step 1:

It is particularly important that you have your dog's complete attention when you are teaching this command. Your dog will not understand what you are doing at first, so be sure to use a positive happy voice and praise the dog continually throughout and after the lesson.

Step 2:

When you have your dog's attention using a favorite treat, toy, or a 'clicker' tool, say the words 'lay down' in a firm voice. Follow through on the command by gently pushing the dog down in a laying position. Pet the dog many times, praise the dog, and then begin the lesson again. After you have repeated this step at least 3 times reward the dog with the treat or toy.

Step 3:

Repeat step 2 a few times a day, for many days in a row, and eventually your dog will associate the words 'lay down' with the action. Once your dog has made this connection, keep the lessons up. Now you can hold up a treat or toy, say the words lay down, and when the dog follows up with the action immediately give the dog a reward with lots of praise.

Step 4:

Overtime stop using a treat or toy as a reward, and stick to verbal praise and petting as you continue with the lesson.

Step 5:

Perform the lessons at least 3 times a day until your dog has really learned it. Continually reinforce the lessons at least once a day, and always follow up with verbal praise.
