To begin, hold the mat in your hand or tucked under your arm. Next, place the mat on the floor a foot or two away from your dog and watch carefully. If your dog glances towards the mat, CLICK the look. Then treat your dog by placing 4 or 5 treats, one by one, on the mat. Once your dog has eaten all the treats on the mat, gently encourage them away from the mat or toss a treat so your dog follows. Immediately scoop up the mat and tuck it under your arm. Stand, wait, and be boring for 5-10 seconds before repeating. Repeat 5-10 times.
