Service dogs need to be able to down and stay with confidence even when there are a lot of adults and children moving around and over them as part of their daily work. Our dogs learn to accept with confidence people stepping over and around them with and without other dogs present, including the use of a variety of distractions.

We down stay our dogs in a row which in itself is a distraction and leave our dogs. Walking in a circle we step over and / or around all the dogs that have been placed for the training session as can be seen in this video ~ Kimberly
