Settle on a mat
'Settle on a mat' is a detailed step-by-step guide to teaching puppies to be relaxed and settled on a mat. Very useful for travel and visiting friend's houses, as well as in the home (for example during human meal times). Based on an article by Nan Arthur of Whole Dog Training (used with permission), the formal exercise teaches puppies that the mat is the place to be for the magical appearance of treats. There are also descriptions of 'Capturing calm' behaviours on a mat and how settle on a mat may be approached in a puppy school situation.
