Starting Your Agility Dog with the Place Command

This is a great exercise for any and all dogs to help them settle or stay out from under your feet.

It can also be paired with a crate for when you need to confine your dog at home or at a trial.

If you use a crate, remember you need to build duration in the crate and then with the door closed.

In other videos by K9-1 they talk more about fading the treat and hand signal as your dog learns.

It is important to start fading the treats as soon as your dog is consistent at each step.

You can use any word you like such as “go to your bed,” or “go to your room.” If this video helped you understand how to start this process, be sure to SHARE it with others that need help with it.
