This training method is all about patience and positive reinforcement, teaching your dog the 'Leave It' command in a stress-free and enjoyable way. Start by allowing your dog to catch the EQ K9 Ball with Handle. Instead of engaging in a game of tug, maintain a calm stance, holding the ball without applying any tension. This pause in play encourages your dog to lose interest in tugging, prompting them to eventually release the ball. The moment your dog chooses to 'Leave It,' immediately reward this behaviour. Reinforce the positive action by returning the ball to your dog, transitioning into a lively game of tug. This approach not only teaches the 'Leave It' command effectively but also strengthens the bond between you and your dog, making training sessions something you both look forward to.
