Utility Article Training Mat | Competition | J&J Dog Supplies
Our Utility Article Training Mat takes simulating ring conditions to the next level! A popular way of teaching the scent-discrimination exercise is the "tie down" method, where all articles except the target one are tied down. For initial training on the Utility Article Mat, a peg-board works best as a tie-down surface, due to the rigid standing surface for your dog.
The Utility Article Training Mat is more easily transported to new training locations than other mats. The 10 included strings are long enough to allow your dog to pick up the wrong article and the string gives an "automatic correction," by trying to pull that article out of the dog's mouth. It features a 3' x 4' size, giving you ample room to spread out a pattern of articles while still leaving room for your dog to stand comfortably on the mat. The Utility Article Training Mat is made from standard forest-green ring matting for more realistic show conditions.
