    DefaultLeave It Command

    I've taught both my labs the 'leave it' command, and they both do great! Unless something has been tossed in or is already in the water. Then Lucky will cry and drag to get at it! I have gone swimming one time to many and it is starting to get a weeee bit cold in Missouri for pond swimming! Anybody have any suggestions? The dog goes NUTS if something is in the water. Happy could care less but Lucky will take me with her to get whatever is in the water!!

    Find something more exciting to get their attention?

    Take a small toy with you that you can put in your pocket that makes sound. A sound that she likes!

    I've tried keeping treats in my pocket...she just ignores them and keeps going. It's an obsession.

    Take a long rope to tie to her so she can go in without dragging you in.

    I have the same kind of pup here. Water- anywhere, anyplace means she MUST SWIM.
    Youre battling a passion of hers and what she enjoys most, so youve got to come up with something BETTER.

    A long lead is a good idea to keep you from getting wet.
