This is a success-guaranteed method of teaching a dog the "leave it" command. By being patient and shaping the dog's behavior step-by-step, we can teach them to ignore something that they want. This video highlights the very beginning few steps of teaching this important cue. Further training is required to build on it and make it even more solid. The dog that you see in this video is Charlie. He is a friend's dog who was kind enough to let me work with him for this video. The entire session was no more than 15 minutes.
