I've read quite a few websites that say to get her to sit (easy enough), and then lower my hand and the treat down toward the ground and she should follow it. She instead just stands up and leans toward the treat.
I've also read that I can gently ease her front legs out, forcing her to lie down... but in this case, she just pulls them back from me and sits up on her hindquarters to get her front legs out of my reach.
I'm working on gathering up/saving the money for a training class, but until then, I'd like to at least get her basics covered. Does anyone here have ideas or suggestions to teach her to lie down?? Thanks in advance. Oh, and a picture -
