Getting Started Week Eleven - On Your Mat Matey

It is very useful to you and your puppy if there's a place established for your puppy to go to relax and settle. Canines understand "place" and need to know they are in a safe, acceptable place.

  • Select a mat, towel, or portable bed that you can carry from room to room and take with you when you and your puppy go out, that becomes the "place" for your puppy to hang out.

  • Provide a tasty chew that the puppy only gets when on his mat.

  • At home leash your pup near you on his mat.

  • Teach your puppy, "place" or "mat" and praise (frequently) for being on the mat and being calm and quiet.
