Emergency Session 93: Intro to Say and Show Down Challenge - Part Two
In this episode we'll jump to a critical point with the "down" challenge, that uses no food and instead focuses on the "say and show" method. It's not unlike the say and show version of sit; but some there are some angles and positions that are distinctly different.
There are two categories of people who may be the best for this type of training;
- Non-food motivated dogs
- People with dogs who give signs that they see these lessons as "optional"
The idea is that we teach this as a necessary part of functional obedience. It's also good to train their dogs this way to "overlap" the food-based approach.
