|Fifi just learned "lay down", and she is four years almost five, in August. She knows sit, stay, take a break. I just never felt the need to teach her alot of commands. Truthfully I didn't know how to teach her, but we just started a Tricks & Games class so... she needs to know that stuff. So anyways what has worked with FI is to make her sit. Once she is sitting I take the treat and put it down in between her front paws, once she is really interested I start to pull the treat forward sliding it across the floor, eventially she will lay down and immediatly I give her the treat and tell her good lay down. (high pitched voice belly rubs)
Another thing I might add is that it helps if you have really interesting treats. I got Fifi freeze dried liver treats and she goes crazy. They smell like fish food, to me, but if Fifi knew how to do back flips she would for these things.
