Training Tips and Tricks: “Leave it!”
Imagine this: You’re on a leisurely walk with your dog, enjoying all the sights and sounds of the neighborhood. Suddenly, you see a melted chocolate bar on the sidewalk in the distance. You can’t pull your dog back before he runs over and gobbles up the whole thing. How can this scenario be prevented?
The object you want your dog to ignore doesn’t need to be something as serious as a toxic food- it can be garbage, sticks, grass, acorns, or even other dogs and humans.
Whatever it may be, it is vital to teach your dog to leave objects when needed in any situation or environment.
“Leave it” is a life-saving behavior that all dogs should master as soon as possible. “Leave it” could potentially save their life and save you thousands in vet bills. Work with a Professional Trainer to teach your dog “leave it” and other life-saving behaviors!
