Directions on Placeboards

This exercise starts bringing in hand signals and getting your dog used to taking direction from you. Start with the placeboards close together and using a treat in the hand you are using to direct with, lure the dog from once placeboard to the other. As always use the word "place" to get them on the board. Click and reward. Repeat each way several times.

Once your dog is confidently doing this you can increase the gap between the placeboards. Remember to do this slowly over a number of sessions. If your dog struggles at any stage, simply go back to where it was confident and start building up again.
