Congratulations on completing the Swissridge place mat course! Work on getting to step 4 of the place command, then begin to challenge the dog in different areas of your home, increasing difficulty by gradually introducing more challenging situations-such as ringing your doorbell, knocking on the door, tossing toys around, while you’re making supper, watching a movie, or holding place while guests come over. When your dog is verbally responisve you can also begin to associate the place cue to your doorbell or a door knock. Remember to knock or ring the doorbell first, followed by the verbal place cue. Happy Training!
