PetSmart Puppy Training: Down and Leave Cues

PetSmart Puppy Training: Down and Leave Cues


Today we’re going to learn “down and leave it”! -Hey it’s Aaron and Guppy and today we’re getting some puppy training tips with
-Shannon Well now that he’s mastered “sit” we can naturally move to “down” -What!?
-Like “lay down” -Yeah
-Are you ready to lay down? -You want to give it a shot? I’ll show you how.
-Let’s do it! Alright, so one of the first things that you need for this is you need to make sure that Guppy understands that “sit” -Oops, oh free treat.
-It’s gone. He’s quick. Alright so to start we’re going to get him excited about this treat. Oh that’s good! And we’re going to slowly guide him down to the ground. -Now be mindful, if you go too fast, his butt will teeter totter.
-Okay. Sit! Yes! Alright and we’re going to slowly, all the way… yes! -That’s my boy! Can I try?
-Absolutely! Are you ready? You watching me? You watching me? Okay, ready? Try a little bit. Sit. Yes! [sad trumpet] One more time. Now you pay attention, daddy. Alright, come here. Sit. Yes! From the nose. All the way down. And just be patient and hold it here for just a moment. Yes! Good boy! He just needed a little pep talk. That’s all he needed. So next, we’re going to talk about “leave it.” Does Guppy ever go for things that he probably shouldn’t?
-Especially when I drop treats or drop food or anything, he’s on it so quick, he’s like a ninja Oh yeah, absolutely. Well you know what? This actually might call for a little help. Do you mind if I bring in my assistant? -Yes! Hello! How are you!? So let me show what I would like the behavior to look like.
-Okay. -Let me borrow one of those tasty treats.
-Yeah. Beautiful! Boys! -I’ll just hold him right here so he can watch.
-There we go. Ready? Leave it. Yes! Good boy! Oh- Don’t worry. We had to start at the bottom. We had to learn from somewhere. Okay so now, I’ve got a few treats in one hand and a few treats in the other. So I’ve got treats to tell him to leave alone and treats to reward him with. Over here. Yes! Good boy! Come here. Alright. So I’m going to offer him down the treats with my hand just like this. And I’m going to wait for him to pull… Yes! Good “leave it!” -So you’re waiting for him to…?
-To kind of lose interest in your hand. Yes! Good “leave it!” So the very second he pulls his nose away, you’re going to reward and treat from the other hand. Leave it. Yes! Good boy! Take it! Good job! -You want to give it a try?
-Yes!
-Alright. -So that’s the one we want him to leave alone and those are the ones you’re going to treat with.
-Okay. Are you ready for this? -Leave it. Yes!
-Yay, Guppy! Good job! -So now you’re ready to make it just a little bit harder for him.
-Okay. So instead of giving it to him closed hand, you’re going to “leave it.” Yes! Good boy! Very Good! And then slowly, what you’re going to do is just make it harder and harder and harder. You’re going to branch out to different objects like his favorite toys so that you’re really making sure that he understands “leave it” is for anything Not just treats, not just toys, it’s for everything and anything One more time, ready? Leave it. Yay! Good boy!

  1. hi guys listen my dog is a yorkie who is 3 yrs old and was completely neglected until he was about 2 and we rescued him.
    when we got him he didn't know any tricks or commands and he didn't even know how to play. we got him in the summer so we got a chance to show him how to play and then we took him to a puppy training school there they taught him how to sit, stay, come, and leave it but not down. the point is that still now he does not know down and we could use it.every time I try to teach him he thinks I want him to wait and leave the he at so he won't follow it to go down! Please does anyone have tips?
