Place mat command

I was wondering if you guys have taught your dos the Place Mat command? if so, how to you get your dog to stay on the mat? I've got Sobaka so that I say place, and she will go to the mat, and she gets a treat. Then what I did was made her wait longer for the treat. This did not work, she keeps getting off. Any ideas? We've been working on this for about 2-3 months...

Thanks for the reply! I am in a room with absolutely no distractions, and am using a release word. Thanks for the help!
The goal for me, is that when I say place, she will go to her mat and stay on. It does not matter whether she is sitting or laying down. Just so she stays on the mat.
Just wanted to give an update. Sobaka is much better. She will stay on the mat for how ever long she is asked. Thanks for all the help!
I have, and she will do it from anywhere in the house!
