Step 2: Fade the lure


With your dog in a seated or standing position, cup your empty hand (palm down) as if you have a treat in it. Lower it in the same motion as the lure – down and close to the chest, aiming for between the two front paws.

As soon as your dog’s belly hits the ground, say “yes!” (or click) and feed a treat from your pouch while they are still in the down position.

If your dog stands up after the mark and before you have a chance to feed the treat, simply lure them back into the down position to release the food. 

You can toss a treat away to reset. 

Repeat 4 more times for a total of 5 repetitions.
