If you want to teach a dog get on a mat. I woud get clicker and treats and put mat out. I'd stand relatively close, say 1-2 ft. Dog looks at mat, click treat. I'd do this 2-3 times. Then I'd wait to see if they took 1 step towards it. click treat. Again do this a few times. Wait for 2 steps. Wait until 1 foot is on. then 2 feet, the 3 feet, then 4 feet.

I'm hoping she'll share the video of the head turn and it will be a great video example of how it's down.

I just blogged about shaping "go to your bed" last week!

It's a lot of fun, and a great way to teach cues.
