    Default Relaxation Protocol - Sit or Down

    Hi all,

    I'm keen to work through Karen Overall's Relaxation protocol with Geoff. Has anyone had any experience with this protocol?

    In the outline they talk about getting the dog to sit, but I'm thinking that maybe down would be a better default for relaxation. At the moment Geoff has two versions of down. One like a sphinx, which is what I want to be 'down' and a more floppy rolling over onto one hip version which I think I'm going to cue as 'chill' or 'relax' or as my daughter constantly tells me 'chillax'.

    Cheers

    Hi,

    Which one does Geoff better without cue? My two dogs are quite different; my minis doesn't drop/down very well naturally and won't stay in Drop/down position without (watching) treat for a long time (with treat he can stay quite long) while my s/tzu is the opposite.
    I love cooking but I love eating even more.

    To tell you the truth he sits by default, but like all young boys, his posture leaves something to be desired, so sometimes you end up with a sit with one leg hanging out to the side.

    The Chillax down comes when a sit doesn't get a treat. He sort of slithers down and flops on his hip. The sphinx one comes from a play bow then he drops his butt.

    cheers
