Train your dog to drop it with this simple dog training tip. This tip was taken from the Dog Training Planner.

Outcome: Dog Learns to Drop Their Toys

This training tip will help your dog to learn to drop their toys on command. This is an important skill for your dog to learn during their training as it keeps them focused and encourages them to respond to you. This training tip may require a lot of patience (especially if you have a stubborn dog) so try to do it when you have plenty of time and won’t feel rushed.

Step 1:  

Begin to play with your dog’s favourite toy. 

Step 2: 

When you want them to drop it, say ‘no’ in a firm tone. If the dog does not release the toy, keep the toy very still until they do let go. This may take a few minutes, be patient and do not practice this if you’re in a rush. 

Step 3: 

Once your dog lets go, give the toy back to your dog and play again. 

Step 4: 

Continue to do this until your dog responds to the command straight away.
