Teaching your puppy to drop something should be a fun and easy thing to do. Most dogs will scavenge and grabs things off the floor, and I find that people have a tendency to just yell, "drop it, drop it, drop it" at the dog, but the dog really doesn't understand the language of what you're asking. So preparing a dog that drop it means literally spit whatever is in your mouth out. All right. And it takes time to do, but it's relatively easy, especially if you make it kind of fun and engaging... .
