Default i need help teaching rascal crawl

he knows so many tricks but crawl is the only one that he will not do no matter what...

i tried keeping my hand on his back and calling him so when he would try to tand he would stay in a crawl possision but he is to stubborn and doesnt care how many treats he gets out of it...

You should try to set him up so his only option is to crawl, and reward that. I tried the "hold the dog dog and call him to you" thing and it didn't work for me either.

Instead I made a channel of chairs and set my dog up at the other end (on a leash) and called him to me...his only option was to crawl!

Heres a little video so it makes a little more sense...

(just click on it)

Sit, Lay, Down, Crawl. Once in the down position, with a treat handy, say "crawl" and move the treat away from Rascals face (still very close to the ground). Rascal should scoot/crawl towards the treat. Even if he only moves a few inches or a foot, tell him 'good crawl Rascal' and give the treat before he breaks the "crawl" stance.

He sure will I only had to do the chair thing once or twice for him to understand...but some dogs might take a bit more repetition. After your dog connects crawling with the command crawl you can slowly remove the chairs!
