This exercise is go to place. The nice part about this is when your dog is under foot, you are cooking, or something else is going on where you just don’t want to worry about where this guy is, send him to place. I start with a treat. I am going to send the dog to his place let him follow the treat. Once here I want the dog to not only sit but to lie down. So I am going to lure her into down, drop the treat. As she is remaining in this position I can continue to treat the dog but only if she is laying down. Then I am going to send her away and back to place. Place is nice because it can be a towel or a blanket and this can travel wherever you may go so if you are traveling in a hotel or visiting people you can bring the place with you, simply send the dog to it and she’ll go there and happily hang out. .
