Life journey of a dog

Mat time

Quiet time on the mats

Quiet time on the mats


I’m reading a book called Control Unleashed, written by Leslie McDevitt, to help with George’s training for focus and confidence. Ms. McDevitt has some wonderful ideas for how to train.

One of the tools I use a lot is the place mat. I’ve gotten both George and Daisy absolutely loving to be on them. When I place the mats on the floor, the dogs go racing to lie down on them. It’s a great place to park them when I don’t want them underfoot while I’m in the kitchen, like in this morning’s photo.

By the way, that’s the laundry room in the background, with Daisy’s whelping box waiting to be put to use. Maybe later today?




Here’s a demo by Leslie McDevitt doing mat work with her dog Snap:
