Training Downs 202

Here is a second look at training ex-racing greyhounds to down using my foster dog, Sahara. Check out Training Downs 201 if you have not already (click here).  This is just more of the same and showing you his progress.  This is from his third training session.  I give a lot more detailed instruction in my Greyhound Downs 101 through 104 so this time I am trying to give you a feel for my thought process when I am working with a new greyhound.

The goal for this session was to get Sahara to lure into a down a few times (instead of crawling under my leg) and for me to get a little further and to move a little more while he stays down.
