Time for a little game. It requires a bath mat.
Put the bath mat in your living room. and tell your dog, PLACE! and with a treat get him to put a paw on it. Work on it, until your dog will sit every bit of his bod on that bath mat to get his treat.
Now take the bath mat outside and put it on the side walk. Put it in the garage. Put it at the end of the drive when there are people walking along, and play your bath mat game.
Take your bath mat to the park, and on the trail. Take it to a bunch of different places and play your bath mat game.
Put it in some interesting places like at the climb-ey thing at the play ground, or up on a ledge, or in an alcove. Oh, and after he has the idea, vary how long before you give a treat. You want to be able to get a reading before giving him the treat if possible.
Now take it to the vet and place it on the scale, Tell him, PLACE -- get your reading, treat your dog.
If it works, great! If it doesn't, well you had a lot of fun playing with a bath mat and your dog, spent no money and probably spiked the curiosity or humor of a couple of dozen people along the way.
