How to teach a puppy to the place
Every dog should have a place in the house. Teaching a puppy to a place is usually easy, but sometimes it takes patience. After the puppy has eaten, the stormy games usually begin, but after a short period of time the puppy begins to sleep. Try to catch this moment, take the puppy in your arms and place it on its mat. Caress, give a small piece of something tasty. Be sure to repeat at the same time – “place, place.” It may well be that the puppy will try to escape. If at the same time he starts to play again – do not insist, leave him alone. But as soon as he begins to put on his sleep – repeat the procedure. Show patience and consistency. Do not let your puppy sleep anywhere. It may take several days to train for a place. And remember that to teach the place can only caress. In no case do not punish or if he gets away from him, you can ruin everything. The place is where the puppy feels safe.
To teach a puppy to sleep in his place and teach him to go there at the command “place” are two different things. True, very many puppies, if you did not forget to repeat the “place” when they were placed on the native litter, praise and give a occasional treat at the same time, they themselves learn what is required of them. But if you want unconditional command execution, you will have to deal with the puppy specifically. This can be done only when the puppy has mastered the “sit” command.
