Place training is one of the most useful skills because once learned, you can use it for so many things. This is where you send a dog to a mat or bed on command and you are able to leave them there until you say they can get up. To get started get your dog to follow a treat onto the bed and reward heavily so that your dog loves being on there. Every time your dog gets off, wait until your dog gets back on the mat and reward heavily again. Show your dog that a release word like, “break,” means he can get off the bed/mat. When your dog hears this word is the only time he can get off the mat so make sure you are consistent. When your dog gets back on the mat reward heavily again. Rinse and repeat.
