Teach your puppy or adult dog to not pick up trash or food when out on a walk on or off leash. The key to successful training is to do training set ups rather than try to train your dog only in real life when he encounters something. This is because if the dog has already gone over to whatever it is in the environment and or even started to pick it up and eat it and you call your dog away or say leave it, the behavior of searching for the item or even picking it up can be inadvertently reinforced meaning that your dog might continue to search for trash. In this video I show how you can set up training set ups in which you control the environment and can set the dog up to do understand that food on the ground is a situational cue to leave it alone. The great thing about this method is that you can teach the dog to completely ignore whatever it is rather than be told to leave it AFTER investigating whatever it is. Proactive behavior management such as working on the issue BEFORE your puppy starts to do it means saving lots of time training down the line. One of the wonderful things about using positive reinforcement to train is that usually the one exercise has multiple benefits, such as this exercise can help teach dogs impulse control and reduce leash pulling drastically.
