Cure the Instinct to GrabandGo

1 Make treat cups (see page 42) and place them around your home. In addition, let your dog drag a lead when you're supervising him.

2 When your dog prances by, object in mouth, find a treat cup and shake it as you call to him in a positive, directive voice: BRING IT. He may look suspicious. If so, sidestep toward him and step on the lead.

3 With your foot on the lead, coax him in and treat him, while thanking him for sharing his treasure.

4 If your dog is a seasoned addict, set up a few practice situations in a small room or hallway to help earn his trust and teach him your new rules quickly.
