SETTLE IN PUBLIC

Once you have taught your dog to settle in quiet environments, it’s important to take this exercise out and about to a variety of locations.

Practice getting your dog to settle on their blanket as you watch the world go by. Make sure you choose a spot which is far enough away for your dog to be able to relax.

You might practice at a quiet cafe, or in the park before eventually building up to relaxing on the high street as people, dogs, children, cars and bicycles go by. Start off with short sessions and build up, until your dog is able to settle for longer.

The more chance you give your dog to practice this skill the more they will be able to happily accompany you anywhere without becoming overexcited or worried.
