Have you ever picked up your dog and put him on a elevated surface and he gives you that “Oh may god don’t put me here and certainly don’t leave me here” stare.
Well the training ramp is the foundation of getting our puppies to use and feel comfortable on elevated surfaces. It prepares them for many life situations where they may be lifted up on to vet tables, show tables or even jumping up on the couch, into the car, onto your bed or being in your arms. Many people think that these sorts of elevated normal everyday occurrences are just what dogs do and that its normal for them to just feel happy doing these things.
But did you know that a puppy has to learn feeling comfortable in these situations. That’s where the training ramp comes in handy. We train our puppies on the ramp with positive reinforcements, never literally pushing the puppy to continue and always being there to help them if they are showing signs of fear or uncertainty.
