teach your dog to "leave it": Part 2
To teach this behavior, she waits for Lou to look at the object. Then she gives the cue “leave it” and clicks/rewards for eye contact. Similar to the steps in indoor training, Imogen began by presenting a low-value object (toy), progressing to a middle-value object (trash), and finally moving on to a high-value item (Lou’s mom’s slipper—Lou likes to steal it and play keep away!). As you’ll see, Lou absolutely crushes her training!
