Tamar teaches Oprah's puppy to lie down.

4 of 14
Next, Oprah's dogs learn how to lie down. To start, Tamar says to look at the spot on the floor where you want your dog to go and make a straight line from their nose to the floor while holding a treat and saying "down." Place the treat on the ground, and then stand up and step back after the dog lies down.

Tamar also says to make training seem like a game and act enthusiastic when the dog does something right. "You want to be free," Tamar says. "You want to have fun."
