Today’s emergency session 88 is part two of the “place” command. We’re going to take it up a notch from yesterday’s work. We’ll look at increasing levels of difficulty. We’ll also talk to those with older puppies and adult dogs, and those that aren’t as “food motivated”. The goal being to learn to apply a more advanced set of skills to get the results you’re looking for.
Hopefully, after episode 87, (which you can click here to check out) you have gone through a few progressions with your puppy to establish their baseline competency level and acceptance of the idea of using their bed. I’ll talk to you about evaluating their skills in this episode; this will help you move forward in the right way or correct any bad habits you might not have thought about.
There are some great beds that you can use for this. I’ve included some links below. In full disclosure, these links are affiliated with me on Amazon and I see a small piece of it if you click through. I believe in what I promote, but I just wanted to be clear about what you were clicking!
I’ve been training people and dogs in Seattle for the last decade and a half. My main focus when working with clients every week in one-on-one, private lessons is to help people learn to get their dogs to a functional level so that they can actually enjoy spending time every day with their dog instead of stressing about their dog’s behavior issues.
