How to Teach Your Puppy to Lie Down

In addition to going to the veterinarian for exams and vaccinations, training is something you will devote a significant amount of time to when you bring a new puppy home. Down is one of the basic commands your puppy can learn easily with a little patience. This video shows how to teach this command.

Entice your puppy to lie down by cupping a training treat in your hand while you’re sitting on the ground. Give the treat when your puppy lies down, and say the command. Repeat the process until the association is made.
