Use It Or Lose It

Place: Use It, Or Lose It!

Are you incorporating the “Place” command into your dog’s daily routine, or is it only reserved for specific occasions? Is your dog starting to view it as a spot to come and go as they please, leading to frustration when they don’t comply in certain situations?

Just like any other skill, “Place” requires practice. Try incorporating a regular pattern of this command into your dog’s day to reinforce their understanding and consistency. Here are some examples of where we like to practice “Place”:

  • Before & after a walk
  • When you are cleaning/working around the house
  • During human dinner time
  • When you are working from home
  • In a hotel room or when visiting friends/family
  • When you are outside or working in the garage

The options are endless! Remember: Practice makes perfect!
