Cato Boards- The Perfect Training Tool for EVERY Dog


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! 


Once your dog understands the place command in conjunction with the Cato Board, the command can be used for almost any situation – visitors at the door, control when being let in and out, feeding time, remote sits, recall, steadiness training, handling drills, and upland hunting skills. With a little patience and creativity, the Cato Board will change the way that you interact with your dog.

The place board method of training is incredibly effective because it provides an objective for not only your dog, but also for YOU as the trainer. Negative behaviors can be stopped and positive behaviors can begin by teaching your dog that the place board is a safe place where they can't be in trouble, and where positive reinforcement happens.


  • High-traction surface (rubber or turf we can custom order in turf boards if you want one!) that are safe and comfortable for dogs
  • Incredibly durable - will not crack or chipNO TIP design - even the most rambunctious dogs won't cause the Cato Board to flip up on its side.
  • Non-absorbent, molded design with integrated water drainage built into the surface
  • Stackable for easy transportation
  • Ultra-stable on uneven terrain
  • Air-flow underneath to reduce damage to grass
  • High-grip rubber feet for hard surfaces - it WILL NOT slide on wood, linoleum, tile, concrete, or other smooth surfaces

Extremely light weight at 3.2 kilos per board.

Dimensions: 40.6cm wide, 60.96 long, 8.89cm high

PLEASE NOTE: The Cato Boards cannot be converted to a Plank by adding a Cato Tilt Stand alone, the boards are shorter and are not designed to be converted to a plank.

For those dogs that also need to be trained for a working purpose, the place board naturally transitions to this type of training. Agility dogs understand how to be rewarded for using an obstacle, hunting dogs have learned patience staying in one place and can also learn to be handled to objectives (place boards) at a distance, etc. 

You and your dog are going to benefit from the Cato Board because it's going to give both you and your dog an objective to work your training around - and ultimately you're both going to have more FUN during the training process!

  • Excellent training aid

    Since we purchased the Cato Outdoor training boards, we have used them every day when training the dogs, especially with the boundary Hanes we play with them. The boards have also created their own space as part of their routines. These boards are very strict a d well worth the money. Wish we had them earlier.
