:) WOW that is awesome!!!! Good boy River!!!! How did you teach him to put his head down?
Thanks!

I started by luring him in position to put his head on the palm of my hand. I then lowered my hand in increments until it was touching the floor. Then I phased out my hand until I could just point to the floor. After a while I transferred it to a verbal command.

In the same way River learned to put his chin on tables, window sills, my lap, arms of chairs, etc.

I hope my explanation made sense. Do you do a lot of training?
