? about the table obsticle

Recommended Posts

If you're not in the U.S., disregard this!


AKC (in the US) has the option (at the judge's discretion) of the position being "down" or "sit." Most folks agree that's its easier to train your dog into an instant down, then sit up if needed. I.e., the "table" command should mean "jump up onto the table and lie down." If you've ever seen people begging and pleading and gesturing wildly, etc. etc. to get their dog to lie down on the table, you'll know what I mean. Getting into a "sit" position, if needed, is much easier from down - and then you won't have the scene described above!
