More Signal Proofing

Still trying to find ways to replicate Lance's down signal issue.  Mostly I'm failing, but sometimes I get Lance to fail!
Here are some of the ways I've tried to both test Lance's understanding of the down and understanding of remain in a stand until cued to down.

- Food in front of him

-Food under his chest
- Food on his paws

- Waving a bag of food in my other hand
- Between a helper's legs
- A helper touching him
- Standing underneath Vito
- In between me dancing erratically.
- Suddenly dropping my chin to my chest and closing my eyes

This weekend we have a CDSP trial where I will get to see if Lance is truly back to being "fixed" and then next weekend is another AKC trial.  Fingers are crossed.
