Don’t Rear­range Your Fur­ni­ture.

Modern Dog - - TRAINING -

Dogs have an in­cred­i­ble abil­ity to map their en­vi­ron­ment as long as it’s kept con­stant. Over­time, a dog will mem­o­rize a house’s lay­out and the lo­ca­tion of the fur­ni­ture, get­ting a pic­ture of the fa­mil­iar places in his head and mak­ing him less likely to bump into things. “The dog will learn how to get around the house so don’t move your fur­ni­ture; leave it as it is so that they are com­fort­able, so that their knowl­edge of their house stays the same and they don’t have to try to fig­ure things out when things get changed,” says Ir­win.
