    It's so easy to teach, you'd be quite amazed how simple it is.

    What I did;
    To teach him I taught him to lay down first then started pushing him onto his side and rewarding him when he laid there and soon he predicted my hand movements so I introduced the word Bang. Soon he started doing it on command but only laying down, so I told him sit and would gently go to push him again telling him bang and if he fell i rewarded him. Soon I could just say Bang and he'd fall over <3

    I use a clicker and treat for reward and found it sped up the process much quicker! :thumbup:

    If you can't get it, i'll video it :thumbup:

    Haha! Love it - I've been teaching Mac but he's too restless to lie in any position so he lies there with his feet going all over the place - looks more like some kind of fit rather than dead! He'll get there eventually!

    I got the fright of my life, however, when I read the title of the post! Very naughty! :p

    Laura :)

    Haha, Yeah Rusty is terrible he tries to do everything else first so takes him longer but I found when he's not had breakfast or dinner and I used a clicker then he works harder ;)

    Hehe I know :eek::p

    :lol: Haha yes, I think they all seem clicked on Bear was always quick to learn too.
