I ended up taking Dash out of that class because the only advice the trainer could give me was to force him into the down which I think is unacceptable. We started a new class three weeks ago with a trainer that I adore so far. There are only two dogs in this class so it's great. Dash did his first down yesterday....twice in a row! Yay! So far he's got sit, walk with a loose leash, stand, come and down. I'm so proud of my boy!
