    We started teaching Remy that he needs to go into a down (and stay til we release him) to get his meals. You have never seen a puppy hit the floor faster!!

    I taught Puff using the NiLiF method. She ate many meals that way -- obey a command, get a few kibbles from my hand.

    She can hit the ground pretty quick.
