I've got bath mats, but remember my dogs are a lot bigger than yours. Lol. I do not have enough mats to give us a decent working area. I remember looking at some kiddie flooring a few months ago, and I might get that. It's like multicoloured foamy puzzle pieces that you stick together. I might pick some up tomorrow and see if that works. But I'd still have to clear furniture to give me enough wall space to do this. So there's that inconvenience as well.
I forget everyone doesn't have a giant supply of bath mats (and I meant the rugs not the ones in the shower). I use them for crates so I have a huge stack of them.

How were you planning on teaching it? Because I think if you use a slanted (or flat on the floor to start with) board you could do the beginning stages pretty easily without using any wall or needing carpeting.
