How can one teach a puppy to learn to retreat to a specific spot when someone is at the door? I wold like to be able to do this when we get our puppy so that we don't have to worry about him running out the door, or jumping up on people when they come to our door. I am thinking of teaching him to go lie down on his bed, for example when the doorbell rings. Ideas?

I try basic "go to mat" training.
like this for example.

I'd keep the verbal command or a hand sign, but it woul also be possible to make the sound of the doorbell the command/cue.

I'm not a trainer though...just a normal owner. :)
