  • Looking for a training aid to refine your obedience, protection or dog sport training? Level up with our Position Box* & Place Board** combo! 

    Sharpen up obedience positions

    A dog that takes a step back or forward before changing position (called forging in competitive obedience) or rests on their hip when laying down, not only does not look as ‘sharp’ but in a competition risks losing their handler valuable points.


    Position Boxes to shape clean, precise movements

    Using the box as a tool in your training session, you can practice achieving the gold standard for getting into the heel, finish, and front sit position plus position changes such as sit, stand & down.


    How a position box can benefit your score

    • When introducing the box to your dog you guide them in, they feel the front lip and that’s where you stop and reward.

    • Having the lip at the front conditions your dog to change position but not take a step back or forward.

    • In position changes such as from a sit to down to stand the aim is for your dog to keep their front legs stationary, the open back end facilitates this by only allowing your dog’s back end to move

    • The box is designed with narrow sides, which prevent your dog from resting on their hip

    • Approaching from all angles you can teach your dog to get into position: heel, finish, front sit

    • 2 in 1 flip over to use as a platform, useful if you want the dog to target the position with drive and not decelerate due to the sides.


    • Marine Ply (indoor & outdoor use)
    • Standard 20cm x 31.6cm x 80cm (Please note: product pictures show a wider 40cm variation).
    • 12 kg with carry handles as standard
    • Non-slip, rubber chip top
    • Professional joinery

    These boxes have long been popular with competitive trainers but work for any dog handler that wants to achieve sharper and cleaner obedience.


    *Position boxes are also known as Position boxes, dog training boxes, shaping boxes or obedience boxes.

    **Place boards are also known as Place boards, training platforms, or dog platforms.
