Teach your dog Leave It and Take It - Safe and soft mouth

Added on Jan 10, 2017 From Simpawtico Dog Training

Teach your dog to ignore things on the ground, AND keep all your fingers when you reward them! **** Download the FREE Simpawtico Basic Gear Buyer’s Guide here:


Watch my Drop It video to complete the training!

Watch my video on the Four Types of Toys and How To Use Them for more tips on mouth control:

Check out the video from Dog Star Daily (Dr. Ian Dunbar) about Take It and Leave It (although he calls Leave It “Off”)

Covered Rally Bowl used in the outdoor practice:

*The covered bowl is a good tool because it prevents the dog from accidentally getting the food. As I said in the video, errors will set you back and erode your reliability. A cover helps you make it error-free.

Jun 23, 2017 - hi, I have a problem with my rescue dog. He's 7 and he's never played with a toy in his life. I can't get him interested in toys, no matter which one I use. Do you have any advice? thanks!

Jun 18, 2017 - I know this is a long shot but I'm trying to make my outdoor dog (German shepherd) into an indoor dog but he's never had any training. I made the mistake of leaving him inside while I ran an errand and he had peed on everything! He's about 2 years old and not used to being inside any tips how to train him?

Jun 13, 2017 - Thank you for your videos. They are very simple to understand and valuable information. my problem: My dog jumps up on us or jumps and nips at our hand when it wants our attention. I have trained her not to jump up on me but she still jumps on my husband and guests. She doesn't touch me with her paws when she jumps up but tries to nip at my hands as she jumps in the air near me. How do I train her to stop this behavior?
