This technique will keep them out of harm's way

Welcome to CBC Life's pet training classes. This series of short videos will teach you how to get your pup to obey simple commands that can be used in a wide variety of situations.

Leave It Command 1:26

This week Danielle shows us how the "leave it" command will help keep your little pup safe and out of harm's way by teaching them when they shouldn't touch something like harmful materials you might find on your daily walks.

Make sure you switch up the locations you teach this command so they really start to understand they need to listen to it all the time and not just in the initial learning location.
