Using A Platform To Build Confidence and Body Awareness

A really neat crossover exercise from the obedience/freestyle world is the use of what is called a Platform.

It gives the dog a specific place to keep their feet while performing different commands much like a “place” holder.

The platform allows you specific control of your dog’s position, work on body awareness and build confidence.

In this video Pam demonstrates how to start teaching your dog how to change body positions on the platform.

This is super for contacts and even more for the table, making your dog comfortable and solid on body position changes.
