What is the climb position for dogs? It's a place command that instructs the dog to move onto an object and lay down with all four feet on it. The climb/place position is a great way to give a dog a break from physical activity or start off their training in the morning. Teaching a place command like climb takes the dog’s natural desire to explore and redirects it, helping them learn to focus on both you and what they were asked to do. It can also give you time to get dressed, make coffee, prepare breakfast, simply stand up from your seated position. The main consideration when teaching this command is how much distance to keep between yourself and your dog, as well as the positioning of the object you choose.
