  • Description
  • Do you want to uplevel your dog’s obedience by introducing a platform to their training using a Place Board, 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?

    Used correctly as a training platform the Place Board can act as a target to focus dog training and improve, sit-stay, recall, retrieves, general obedience and dog sports and much more.


    The T.A.R.G.E.T method: 

    Anglian Dog Works have designed a progressive, achievable training programme that shows you how to teach your dogs to use a Place Board as a target, using our signature T.A.R.G.E.T method which we will cover in this guide.

    This eBook is designed to guide you on how to train a dog that's never been introduced to Place Board Training to move on to the target provided by a Place Board when you say “Place” and sit and stay seated, no matter what, until released with a release cue, such as “OK”. This creates a really strong sit-stay behaviour as well as a foundation for training in increasingly complex exercises.

    The eBook features clear and easy-to-follow lessons guiding you through the method of training a dog to use a Place Board broken down into a simple, step-by-step, guide so that you can become a Place Board Pro in 6 easy steps!

    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.

    Good instructions, professional presentation. Would have liked a bit about what to do when it goes wrong and/or how to advance.

    Dogs took to place training quickly

    Excellent training guide

    Really useful guide to keep on your phone for when you're out with your dog - clear & concise with lots of photos. I found it most helpful to watch the videos in the online course first then use this as a reminder during the session
