Hey guys, natalie here with canine performance and in this video i’m, going to be demonstrating the most functional and valuable command that you could possibly teach your dog, but before i get into it, if you could do me a huge favor and smash The thumbs up button, if you’re, not subscribed to our channel, go ahead and subscribe now.

So what’s, the value of teaching a place or, as i call it, the climb command? There are so many useful applications. You are going to use this command every single day. If you have a dog that has a lot of over-excitement over-arousal.

Perhaps they have fears and phobias really important. If you have a dog that gets really excited when guests come over, the doorbell rings. It’s very important for counter conditioning and desensitization, and even for grooming as well.

There are so many very important and useful applications of this command. So i’m, going to be demonstrating with sunny. He is a service dog in training, and he is here with me because he has a lot of over excitement and also a little bit of reactivity to dogs from that excitement.

So the place command, or, as i call it, the climb command is going to be super important for him to learn to properly counter condition and desensitize him to other dogs and teach him a much more calm state of mind.

So you ‘ Ll need a couple of things to get started. I use an elevated dog bed. A lot of people ask me natalie. Why do you use an elevated dog bed? It’s really important to use that, because, since the dog bed is elevated off of the ground, it has a very defined boundary of where we want the dog to be.

It leads to less confusion in the command when the dog understands where they’re supposed to be placed. Another thing is that you are going to need a leash for this. I’m, going to be using a simple slip.

Lead you’re, also going to need a food reward as well. So the process of how i’m going to do this is i’m going to bring sunny down off of the elevated dog bed. I’m, going to be away from it. I’m going to say the command place.

Then i’m, going to use the leash and use leash guidance to bring him on top of the elevated dog bed. Once all four paws are on top of the elevated dog bed, i’m going to mark good, and then i’m going to follow with a food reward from there.

I’m, going to give his release word, which is okay, and that means that he can get down off of the elevated surface. I’m, going to repeat this process about 10 to 12 different times. So now i’m, going to demonstrate step, one which is going to be introducing the command place, ready, sonny, ready place, good boy good.

Once he’s on good and he even offered a down. Then i’m, going to release him with okay good boy good. Then we’re, going to start this all over again sit good place, good boy, very good, good job. Okay, good boy, sit good place, good boy, good job, very good.

Buddy good job, okay, good boy, sunny, sit good place, good boy, very good, good job. Okay, good boy, sit good, please good boy, very good, good job, sonny, good boy, very good. Okay, sit good ready, honey place, good boy, very good, good job, okay, good boy, good job, ready, sonny, sit good job, please good boy, very good, good job.

Okay, good boy, sit good job, very good, ready, sunny place, good boy, very good job, sunny good boy. Okay, sit good, very good boy, sonny ready place, good boy, yay, good, sunny, good boy, very good, good job sit good, okay, good boys, honey, very good, ready place, nope place good boy, very good, good job.

You’ll notice that when he jumped off of the elevated surface i just simply marked no and then i guided him back on and then when he was on. I marked good and then rewarded from there. So if you’re working at home with your dog and they also get off of the elevated surface, simply just mark no the moment that the paw touches the ground and then just guide them back onto the elevated surface.

Okay, good boy sit good place, good boy, very good, sunny good job, good boy, all right and then one last rep of this okay, good job, ready, bunny, sit good, nice, good boy, very good, sunny, good job, very good.

Look at that, even it down as well. Good boy, so for a first session that’s, typically, what it’s, going to look like so from here on out. We’re just going to continue to have a lot of repetitions just using simple leash pressure and a food reward to start teaching him when i say place to get onto this elevated surface once he starts to understand that i can then layer on Other tools, such as a prong collar or an e-collar, and then when we go out into the environment, i’m, going to start generalizing the behavior, which means that when i see a park bench or anything elevated outside, i’m.

Going to ask him to place onto that surface so then he can start to generalize that when i say place, it simply just means to get on top of an elevated surface. [ Music ], you

In this video, I break down and demonstrate the beginning stages of the ‘Place’ or ‘Climb’ command. This is the command that my clients use the most in everyday life and can apply to many areas.
