Dog Training – The Place Command – Part 1
The Place command gives you a way to “park” your dog where you need them. Unlike the Down command where your dog must stay in one position, the Place lets your dog stand, sit, down or stretch as long as they remain within the perimeter of the defined Place.
Things to keep in mind:
-Practice duration before working on getting out of sight of your dog.
-Always show your dog how to get on a new Place.
-Make sure there are defined edges to the Place. (A rug on the carpet is not definable enough for a dog in the beginning of training)
-Always release your dog or call them off Place.
