    go straight to the point. U talk to much

  28. boskydoor says:

    Zak, can you troubleshoot lure training? Specifically, I am having trouble luring my friend's dog (Meesh) into a down. I do what it says in the video; she follows the lure to the ground with her head, and then stands up (instead of moving her paw forward into a down). You treated Abby whenever she took a small step, but Meesh doesn't take that step. Any advice? I've tried making the ground more comfortable and doing training from her favorite ottoman so she's elevated above the treat.

  29. Pet Mey says:

    My dog goes into he sit but when I give him the treat he walks offs to his bed

  30. meine culting says:

    I dont know what im doing wrong

    Me : Ok

  31. DaNeatra Barker says:

  32. AddiesPiggies says:

  33. Ainsley Sweets says:

    I have a dog who, instead of doing what the dog does in the video, she gets up from sit to eat the treat. Please help me?

  34. AyeePlays says:

  35. MES says:

    My dog goes from a sit to an immediate playing dead position – hoping for a belly young. Every single time.

  36. Ruth Rose says:

    I got a dog about a month ago. I taught him sit stand and paw. sit and stand was easy because I used his natural behavior to do it. paw was a little harder, but he got it pretty quickly. I'm having a little bit trouble with down. I've tried with a treat going really really slow on his nose. may I have some advice please.
