    I’ve been teaching our GSD ‘leave it’, but so far only for objects in her mouth. She’s extremely clever and really highlights why only positive training can work to an extent.

    If i have the clicker in my hand, or she knows i have treats – she’ll leave it straight away, but when i say it spontaneously she just keeps on tugging or biting etc.

    I don’t correct her as she’s only 13 weeks old – but is she smart enough already to comprehend a correction in this instance?

    and if so, how would you suggest applying it to leave it?
