Starting Your Agility Dog on the Down Command

Another command that you will be using in dog agility is the down at the pause box or table.

Getting a quick and reliable down can save you lots of time on your agility course alone.

But you don’t start there, you start here with these exercises as the down has it’s own challenges.

The sit is a bit harder to maintain for some dogs as they are getting farther away from the treat.

Others feel uncomfortable in that position with the handler standing over them and need more confidence.

Take your time with the down and keep lessons upbeat and happy, but first click LIKE then get started with your dog.
