Beatrix on blanket with catAs I am gaining more experience teaching dogs to be comfortable in the overly stimulating urban environment I am finding that rewarding settling on a blanket or bed of their own is perhaps the most useful all around skill a dog should learn.

No matter what the problem might be, this very easy to teach behavior is handy wether you’d like to read in peace, teach your dog not to bark and run to the door when a delivery person arrives, when guests come to the apartment or as a safe spot while you are vacuuming.

It is really wonderful for the dog to know what to do when he or she feels insecure!

Here is a photo of little Beatrix who was recently on vacation at a house with a cat. See how nicely she is settled on a blanket?

Good choice, Beatrix!
