Training “Place”

Have you ever had a visitor and your dog greets them before you? Training your dog to go to his or her place can be beneficial for a number of reasons.


  1. Not running out the door when it opens
  2. Not greeting your guests before you do
  3. Eating dinner without an extra mouth at the table
  4. Doing the dishes, with the dishwasher open, without help from your 4 legged friend
  5. Having friends over and not having the dog in their lap on the couch

These are just some of the benefits of training your dog the ‘place’ command. This command does not have to be a mat, you can generalize it to other areas of your preference (seen in picture was two Boxers).
