Teach Your Dog to Drop It



Teach your dog to drop itTupac is back! He’s the largest pit I’m working with these days.


Today’s focus was on “drop it”, since he likes to steal other dog’s toys and balls. He first has to learn to give up simple things in his own home before being able to do it outside when he’s all amped up.


Here’s a video that takes you through the steps to teach your dog to drop any object. To prove that it’s possible with any dog, I demonstrated it on live TV with a shelter dog who guarded a bit.


The high level steps you’ll see me cover are:

  1. Trade for treat – to start understanding the command
  2. Delayed treat – to build trust
  3. Take it away – practice & for “real life” situations
