Contributed by Terri Elkins, Owner / Trainer -

Note from from CP Blogger: We would like to thank Terri Elkins for allowing us to post her weekly taming tips on our blog. Her training facility is located in Fort Worth, Texas.

Each week we'll share a Taming Tip for you, your family and friends to do with your dog(s)! These tips will help teach your dog real world manners in a fun way. Leave us a comment and tell us how it went!

Taming Tip #16:

Want to polish off your down-stay? Take your dog to the busiest room of the house and ask your dog to down-stay, while your family / friends are walking around the room or while there are other distractions present such as people snacking on food, kids playing, etc. To help keep your dog in position, click and treat every few seconds. Practice this often, maybe once in the morning and once in the evening. Remember to keep your training short, we suggest 5 minutes and under.
