Hand signals are very important tools you can use to train your dog.

Dogs aren’t verbal creatures – even though they can learn how respond to your words. For them it’s easy to see movement – so they can readily perceive the movement involved in a hand signal. Give the hand signal immediately followed by the verbal command.

The Down Signal is one of the commands you can easily learn and teach your dog.
