Result for Challenge #4: Teach Your Dog “Take It” and “Drop It”

Dog with Bone I have seen real progress with my dog. So, I have decided to end this challenge.

It is a refreshing change to see her instantly and cheerfully stop a game of tug of war, with the words, “Drop it”. Giving her a treat and then continuing the game is one effective way to reward this good behavior.

Remember the rules of tug of war with your dog:

  1. You are the one who starts the game.
  2. You are the one who ends the game.
  3. You win every time (or almost every time).

If you are not winning at tug-of-war, then you are in serious danger of promoting dominance and aggression in your dog. Your dog must be crystal clear that you are the leader and you are in charge.
