Big Dog - Teach "Place"
Hide Video Transcript
Kate Jackson, Certified Dog TrainerWhen teaching place you need to have an enticing place for your dog to go—I like to have a rectangle place with a nice thick edge--You'll see why we need this edge in a little bit. Your dog also needs to have a good understanding of the down command. You'll going to start with a bunch of treats for this exercise. You're going to lure your dog (come Scrubs) tell them to place, and them put them into a down. You won't give them a treat immediately for down—wait a couple of seconds, tell them Yes! Good Place and toss them a treat. Yes good place. Very good. You'll continue to and saying Yes! Good Place. And toss them treats. In your dog's mind lying there is the easiest thing to have treats fall from the sky. Yes, Good Place. Practice from further and further away, be really good with you aim, and that's where the edge helps from keeping the treats from falling off. You'll be surprised how quickly your dog figures this out…this is a fantastic exercise in dealing with nuisance behaviors like begging, barking and jumping up on people. For WebMD's One Minute Trainer, I'm Kate Jackson.
