Impulse control - game #1

One of the most common issues clients have with their dogs is a lack of impulse control.
Instead of jumping up on visitors to say hello or pulling towards something on leash, clients want their dog to have the self-control to sit or approach calmly. I believe the best way to teach a dog impulse control is with fun and rewarding games.
Click here to teach your dog his first fun game - leave it! Practice makes perfect, so be sure to practice this exercise daily.
Stay tuned for more games in the coming months.
You want me to LEAVE IT?
My Labrador retriever gets fed every morning at 6:30. If I get busy and lose track of time, he quickly lets me know. By 6:45, his frustrated, high-pitched barking lets me know that I have fallen down on the job.
I know dogs cannot tell time, but HOW do they do that? Numerous theories abound.
