Place is the single most important command to learn when beginning obedience training. It doesn’t matter where you are training whether it is inside or outside, you first need to figure out what you are going to use as place (lightweight and portable).
What is my place
The Object is to get your pup onto a mat or small rug for example, not just an area. You may lure the pup with a small treat so that it will follow you.
Let’s watch the video below.
In the video you saw Tucker go to place. This was a command that he learned 4 years ago. Tucker knows that if there is a mat or a stand around and I tell him place, he will automatically go to it and get on it. This is great when family or friends come over.
