Leave It

Leave It! is one of the most important skills you can teach your dog. Not only is it imperative to keep your dog safe from scooping up that chicken bone on the side of the road or the bottle of medication you just knocked over onto the floor, but Leave It! also teaches impulse control to your four-legged friend.

Your dog doesn't "listen to you"? Teaching the skills from this class will also help your recall, loose leash walking and overall good manners.
