The 'Leave It' command is one of the dog training commands commonly used with the 'No' command. Some choose to stick with just the 'No' command instead and use it for various different types of behaviours, therefore covering all areas without the need of the Leave it command at all.

But if you introduce 'Leave It', then 'No' could be used during training (to tell your dog when he doesn’t perform one of the obedience commands correctly etc.) Here's how to teach 'Leave It'.

The perfect dog. One that always lays down through our dinner, always comes when called, always welcoming our visitors without jumping. One we never have to worry about getting into trouble at the dog run. And we want it after having 6 one-hour lessons when he is less than a year old, and never having to think about it again. Does it happen this way? Dog behaviour modification is a not an over-night process. The perfect dog does not happen after 6 lessons with the dog trainer, but through consistent reinforcement and carefully tailored building blocks in his training curriculum. Read on to find out more on the factors that influence your dog's learning.

Your dog hesitates to come when he has clues you are about to give him a shower. Yes, the 'come' cue was "poisoned" because he doesn't like the shower. When all the clues (towels, blower, and grooming essentials being laid out) are present, 'come' takes 2 minutes. Yet, at other times 'come' is instantaneous. The shower isn't a motivation enough for him to 'come' when called. What are the other times your dog may seem stubborn and untrained?

Most dogs were bred to do something, be it herding livestock, hunting and retrieving games, guarding the property, or exterminating vermin. But too often while we (the owners) are out and about working, our canine friends are left at home for long periods of time on their own. The long periods of being left on their own and their desire to do something, is the perfect recipe for a disastrous dog. Like many of us agree, "busy pets are happy pets", and there may be more we need to do to keep our dogs mentally busy. Read more here on some of the signs our dogs require more mental stimulation!
