This video covers in good detail how to train your dog to settle down.  This means that you train the dog to go to its mat to lay down and relax.  Learning to settle will help you at times when it is better for the dog to be out of the way.  It can certainly help if you have guests and can also be helpful for the dog – as it puts them in a familiar place where they can, indeed, settle down, if the situation gets them a little over excited.

The trainer in the video also suggests that learning how to train your dog to settle can be a good way to eventually train a dog that is reluctant to go into a crate.  If you plan to crate train your dog and it is not that comfortable going into the crate, this training is an excellent segue to the crate.

He uses a clicker to reinforce the training so you may need to get one if you don’t already have one before you begin this training.  What do you think? This is a good video that explains exactly what to do. If you found it helpful, LIKE the post and share it with others.  Questions? Let us know below!
