Lots of times dogs are resistant to lying down on command. Sometimes it’s out of stubbornness or being too energized. Sometimes it’s because down is a very vulnerable position and the dog may not want to relax, especially in public. After a walk is the perfect way to teach down. The dogs are more relaxed and ready to listen. Some, like Rosco, prefer to relax. Honey and Chance know that they can’t put their heads together to outsmart Tracy! When they hop up, she puts them right back in a down until they realize Tracy always wins!
Triple down! Good dogs!
