Step 3: Clean up the hand signal

0%

With your dog in a seated or standing position, cup your empty hand (palm down) and lower your hand in the same fashion, to the floor. Freeze and wait.

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.
