THE MOST USEFUL DOG TRICK

Last month I wrote about indoor activities that my dog and I enjoy doing together.  Several snowstorms have kept us housebound this month, so I had plenty of time to teach Chase to go to a mat in a variety of situations.  I call this trick “Go Away” and find it very useful for when I want him to do just that, especially in situations where he has been bothersome.  Of course I pay generously and tell him how good he is for doing it.  To Chase it’s just another fun game to play with Mom.  Here is my video to give you some ideas of how you can use going to a mat (or some other designated location) with your own dog.
