Spike was introduced to the "Down" command a couple weeks ago. Yesterday he did it without being manhandled and he has been doing so about 80% of the time (with little to no distractions) since then. He seems to like doing it.
Spike never liked his Nylabone until Meade broke it in for him. I was amazed to see him actually using it.
Spike loves to be under my bed. He will often crawl under there and fall asleep. He will usually take a couple of his toys with him and leave them there. This is Spike getting his toy out from under the bed. It's probably hard to see. Sorry!
