If your dog is stressed, getting underfoot or just being a nuisance, the 'go to your bed' command will be a lifesaver.

Danielle Hodges from Follow the Leader Dog Training says the key to this cue is to make the dog's bed the only place in the entire house they want to be. With a few treats, a little coaxing and some patience, your dog will feel right at home on their bed in no time.
