Want to do Place Board training but don’t know where to start?
You may have heard of Place Boards or seen the success other trainers are having using training platforms in their exercise but are unsure how to introduce one to your dog?
Place boards are used as a training platform as a form of target training. Used correctly focusing your training using a Place board as a target can improve recall, sit-stay, retrieves, and much more.
I first saw Place Board’s demonstrated by field trial champion Ian Openshaw at the CLA Game Fair 2014 and was so impressed by the results he displayed. It inspired me to introduce them into training with my dog, a cocker spaniel who worked as a beating dog throughout the shooting season and was training and competing in dog agility in the closed season. So, I made a start, trawling the internet for tips and tricks without many results and instead ‘feeling my way through’ using intuition and trial and error.
Fast forward, I am fully accredited as a professional dog trainer by The Institute of Modern Dog Trainers (IMDT), have been leading classes since 2019 and have niched down into training with and selling Place Boards. I have extensive first-hand experience of using place boards for dog training in classes and training our dogs and have drawn on this previous experience and knowledge to put together this guide and share with you, my expertise.

Train for Sit-Stay Success with our Level 10 Challenge
So, you've got a dog that sits and stays BUT does it work in the real world where there are distractions? Take our challenge to find out...
What's the value of adding challenges to your training?
Whether you want your pet to sit at the curb while you wait for a gap in traffic, an agility dog to remain at the start line so you can get into position or a gundog on peg to wait for the drive to end, it’s important they don’t get up until given their released cue. Sitting and staying no matter what’s going on until released is an important life skill. Adding distractions in progressive layers challenges our dogs so that we can train and test this skill.
📖 To help those of you taking part we're giving away 3 sections from inside Anglian Dog Work’s Place Board Online Course and eBook that will give you more details and tips. So, go ahead & enrol.
💾 Secondly… save or screenshot the PDF file that outlines the 10 levels of the steadiness challenge to take with you when you go out training.
