Question Tips on a good down stay.

Fred is great at sit stays, but really isn't keen on down stays. I don't think he actually likes lying down outside or on hard surfaces.

We use the command lie down, and a hand signal (arm straight in the air, this is for when or if we do working trials).

But he is soooooooooo reluctant. Never get a good full down and he never wants to stay down

Any good tips? Or just keep at it....?
