Me and my family have been teaching Mollie tricks.
So far, the most successful have been "SIT", LIE DOWN", "COME" && "GO AROUND"
She also knows "STAY" and "ROLL OVER".
But I have some questions, as to whether I am doing it right..
Q1) When I say "Mollie, Lie Down" she doesnt lie down unless I kneel down and put my hand on the ground. It seems she is "LYING down" for the signal and not the actual word. How can I teach her to lie down when I say JUST the command, when I am standing up?
Q2) STAY - This was the 2nd trick we taught her, but she still doesnt seem to get it. When I train her withOUT treats, she will stay for a few steps, but then come. How do I teach her to stay properly?
I really want her to understand these basic tricks before I finish teaching her "ROLL OVER". I really want to be on the right track with her <33
