Auggie thinks that "down" means run over in front of me and then down. Now, don't get me wrong - he doesn't think that he only has to down if I'm standing in front of him. I can be halfway across the room running away from him and yell "DOWN" and he'll react, but he chases after me, gets next to me, and then lies down. This is still not correct, LOL. I want him to hit the deck right where he's standing when I say "down." How do I work on this with him? I thought about maybe starting to take a few steps back, but he has to be in a NOT-down before he can get down, and if he's not down, he'll run over to me and down. I am wondering if I should try a new cue word if he already has it ingrained in him that "down" means "run over to mom and then lie down" but then I'm not sure how to start training it as something new and not end up with the same problem.
