Training a STOP using a Place Board
Training a Stop Whistle
A Quick 3-Step Place Board Exercise
Googling sunset times to plan my training timetable, I realised it would be a good idea to share one of my favourite quick but powerful Place Board Training exercises that you can find time to do before it gets dark or in a well-lit area.
Teaching that a “pip” on the whistle means STOP using a Place Board
- Toss food out behind your dog, and "pip" as they return and sit on the Place Board.
- Add distance between you and the Place Board by taking a step away from the platform after you throw out the food; now your dog is stopping and sitting at a distance.
- The final progression is to phase out the place board
