Hello. I have a 3 month old pug who knows sit and shake. I was able to train her 4 month old Shiba "brother" (also with the same trick set) to lay down in under 10 minutes using instructions online (sit, pass treat in front of face down to ground, reward when down and paws are out forward). I'm having more trouble with her; she will sit, and she will tilt her head very low to follow the treat, but it's more of a bow than a splay out down. She's also a chubby, and her butt kinda slides a bit (no traction) when she's looking down, and I don't know if it's her belly getting in the way of not going all the way down. If I can get some help, I promise not to use so many parentheses in future posts (thanks).
