Teaching your dog to lay their chin on your knee or a cushion isn’t only cute but is a really useful behaviour for healthcare of ears and eyes as well as vet checks and trips to the groomers.

It’s easy enough to teach them to put their chin on your leg or a cushion by first of all just luring them into position.  The video shows how you can teach your dog to remain chin down while a piece of equipment goes near their ear (please note I never put anything IN his ear!). I used a clicker and some plain kibble as rewards. Remember, you have to go at the pace of your dog and always keep it fun!
