Limitless Canines the place command

Do you ever wish your dog would just hang out on her bed and relax? Maybe you don’t need a “stay”, necessarily, and you don’t want her in a crate, you just need her out of the way. Enter: the “place” command. When you tell your dog to place, it means he should keep all four feet on something with a defined edge until you say otherwise. This thing with a defined edge can be a dog bed, the couch, or even a dining room chair. Whatever you point at and say “place” to, your dog should jump up on it and hang out there. Place is one of the most underrated and basic commands. It’s more relaxed than a stay, since your dog can do whatever he wants when he’s on his place, he just needs to stay there. You might not even realize how often you would be able to use this command, but take a moment and consider. Do you ever have to make multiple trips in from the car after the grocery store? Do you dread having parties because of someone inevitably letting the dog out? What about when your in-laws come over for dinner, and they can’t get through the appetizer without a big wet nose in their face? Just put the dog bed in front of the hearth, give your dog the “place” command, and presto! All those problems disappear! When done consistently, you can be certain that when you put your dog on place, he will be happy to hang out there until you give him another instruction.
