I am training a 1 year old lab and I am having issues with distance down and sit. He goes into a sit and stays until I give the free command, but it has always been right next to me. So when I back up and tell him to sit, he comes to where I am and sits. Not the behavior I want if I am trying to make him stop where he is. I have been back tying him to the lamp post in the front yard, but its freaking him out and he goes into an automatic down, so giving the down command really isn't getting the point across. Tonight I tried letting my wife walk him on the leash with me giving commands from a distance, and he was about 60%. She was also holding the treat pouch so she could get the reward right away. Anyone have any other ideas?
