Training Jeremy Piven's Dog To "Wait" and "Leave It"

In case you haven't seen, I'm getting super serious about putting out content on my YouTube channel, where you'll find videos of my training sessions, talks at events, and plenty of training tips 🙂

 

I plan on posting summaries of most of my videos here so you can get the best of both worlds - video tutorials with written summaries as you follow along. If you like my channel and videos, it would mean the world to me if you subscribed to my channel and shared it with your friends! ~ Enjoy <3

 

In this video, watch Kaelin train Jeremy Piven’s dog, Bubba. Kaelin teaches Bubba some self control exercises such as "Wait" and "Leave It", which are described below:

 

Teaching a dog to "Wait" for food

  • Tell your dog to sit in designated place
  • Tell your dog “Wait” with the hand gesture (Like you are holding up the #1) while slowly lowering the bowl towards your dog
  • Any time he gets up from sitting and/or tries to go at the food say “UH” and bring your hand back to start again
  • Remember to only say the command once though and be patient!
  • Once you have lowered the bowl all the way down, tell him the release word “OK”
  • If he starts crying at any time during while you are getting him to wait, set the bowl on a table or counter and move away from him. When he stops crying, get the food bowl and start again
  • Make sure you only say the command once!

Teaching a dog to "Wait" for treats

  • Tell your to sit
  • Tell him “Wait” with the hand gesture (Like you are holding up the #1)
  • Slowly start moving the treat towards his nose
  • Any time he gets up from sitting and/or tries to go at the treat say “UH” and bring your hand back to start again
  • Remember to only say the command once though and be patient!
  • Once you have moved the treat to that certain distance away from his nose (and he’s not going for it), tell him the release word “OK”

Teaching a dog to "Leave It"

  • Use an object (treat bag, toy, shoe, etc.) to practice with
  • When your starts going for the object, tell him “Leave It”
  • Remember to only say the command once! Use an enticing sound, his name, or any other sound to get his attention
  • If he doesn’t respond, put a treat on his nose and lure him over to you
  • Once he does leave the object, tell him “YES” and reward him
  • Remember that it is very important to have an extra motivating reward, so that he is motivated every time to leave the object no matter what it is and no matter how enticing it is
