On our walks, whenever we pass a rabbit, and there are a lot of them, my dogs all must use a lot of self control to walk past. They really want a piece of it. The first time they passed one without pulling, I gave them each a "good leave it" treat. Now, whenever we pass a rabbit, they all walk without pulling, but as soon as we are past, I have six eyes focused on me, expecting the good leave it treat. I don't even have to say "good leave it", they know. Of course I give in. (Squirrels, cats, or ducks don't earn leave it treats, just rabbits.)
I can just see 6 eyes focusing on you. That is funny. Such a temptation & they listen....they deserve a good treat.
Good dogs - I don't think mine would ever master leave it
Moxie has 'Leave it' down to a fine art I'd say!
A few more....
