that sounds interesting - what is the technique please?In my puppy training classes, the trainer had us practicing 'impulse control' around food. Basically the aim was to be able to put a handful of very very tasty treats on the floor and have the puppy ignore them completely. I was amazed how quick my puppy learned to leave food alone. She learned it so well that I often have difficulty trying to teach her moves from 'heel work to music' as she won't always follow a 'lure' in my hand. I'll have a dig around and see if I can find the email she sent me on how to do it.
