A great thing to be able to teach your is the ability to lie down. It is a great trick to be able to control your puppy and give him different instructions while trying to teach him other things. This one is quite similar to sitting but it requires a bit more effort not only on your part but on his. It also has the benefit of being easier to maintain for him. The best way to start this would be to think of a gesture or word that you want to associate with the action of lying down. This is mandatory because learn by being given queues. Once you think of it make sure you say it or gesture it in a loud and clear manner so that there is no mistaking it for something else. Once you do that you need to manipulate him in order to demonstrate exactly what you want him to do. In this case you have to force his body down to the ground in the position you want him to be in once you give him the command. You should keep this up for as long as it takes for him to consistently do it without the need for your intervention. This is a sure sign that he has mastered this trick. Always make sure you are consistent when you do these tricks. That is vitally important.
