Before moving on to this week’s material, warm up with last week’s exercise: Building Attraction to the Mat.

[insert last week’s video]

This week, set your puppy up next to you while you’re either sitting in a chair or standing and the mat is by your feet. Remain in that position and repetitively drop treats on the mat. The only difference this week is you standing or sitting in a chair instead of on the floor.

At this point, do not use any verbal cues or ask your puppy to go to the mat. Continue building attraction with the mat. This week, hopefully your puppy is understanding the pattern and seeking out the mat to receive treats.
