Hello, I am a new menber from Williamsville, NY. I have a black lab named Bina who is about 5 years old. I adopted her after my son-in-law found her abandoned. She is a very HUGE lab - larger than normal. I love her to death but I think she has ADD. I cannot train her to walk on a leash or the "down" position. Any suggestions?
Welcome to the forum! ;D
Have an idea on how to train the down position:
Get the dog to sit and with a treat/biscuit in your hand, lower your hand from the dog's eyelevel to the floor and place the treat/biscuit on the ground. Being a lab ( ) Bina should follow the food, simply because it is food and she is a lab .
If this doesn't work, post in the 'Training tips and puppy advice' section, you will surely get lots of help
Welcome from WI; great to have you on the board!
We'd love to see pics of your cutie!
If you post in Training you will get more replies. Chocco has given you great advise.
