Place training is crucial for dog training, and the Cato Board is the perfect tool for teaching this all-important command. Safe, elevated, sturdy, and portable. The Cato Board was designed with your dog in mind! The all new Cato Plank has all of the features of the Cato Board, and when used in conjuction with the Cato Tilt Stand it opens up an enormous amount of puppy development and training options.
Once your dog understands the place cue in conjunction with the Cato Board, the cue can be used for almost any situation – visitors at the door, control when being let in and out, feeding time, remote sits/sendaways, recall, steadiness training, handling drills, directional control. With a little patience and creativity, the Cato Board will change the way that you interact with your dog.

There is not a better tool you could have to help train your dog. The build quality is amazing. I usually put my Cato Boards in my shed, but have left them out in all sorts of weather, they still look new. If you buy one, you’ll have it for a long time, but if you’re like me, you’ll go back and buy more as your training evolves.
