3 Benefits Of Teaching Your Dog To "Down-Stay"
Why teach your dog to perform a “down-stay”?
It's a great impulse control exercise.
It could be an alternative to undesirable behaviors we experience.
It provides the foundations for further "relaxation" & "mat work".
The biggest road block our clients encounter while teaching it:
▪️Progress too fast.
It comes natural to us to want to move onto the next level of difficulty, however, we need to make sure that we have a systematic approach to training & measuring our progress accordingly.
Add the 3 "D-s" accordingly (Distance, Duration & Distraction) only when you are getting consistent positive results.
