    Start with your dog in a sitting position. Hold a piece of food directly in
    front of his nose. Say your dog’s name and quickly move the piece of food
    to the floor right next to the dog’s front paws. As the dog slides down to
    get the food say “down”. Make sure you move the food right next to the
    dog’s paws, because if the food is too far away the dog will get up to move
    to the food.

    @TheFizzyfrog move it forward, and if that doesn’t work, just push a little
    on their shoulders, not too much, but enough to let them know what you want.

    Guys, the reason why your dogs are not doing it might be because you might
    not be bringing their nose to the ground or you are moving the treat to
    fast. Always remember to only reward your dog if they are in the correct
    position. It takes lots of patience! Good luck! 🙂

    My dog will sit…for a second. On the other hand she learned “touch”
    really quickly. Laying…that’s gonna take a while.
