It's not easy to train your dogs. And it's definitely not easy to do it all by yourself. Luckily, the internet is here to give you plenty of helpful tips and tricks to make puppy training a whole lot easier. TikTok creator Kevin Bubolz (@elliegoldenlife) recently shared his number one trick to get his two Goldens to ignore items (like food) on his command, and now he's sharing the helpful hint with thousands of people on the internet.
As Bubolz explained in the video, he really wanted to teach his dogs Ellie and Emma to "leave it." Meaning that the dogs will leave food or treats alone when he commands it. First, Bubolz recommends that dog owners get both "low value and high value treats." Then it's all a matter of training. "As soon as your dog looks at you, mark and reward," Bubolz advised. There are only two more easy steps after that, but you'll need to watch the video to see for yourself.
