This can cover the spectrum from non-aversive to traditional methods of dog training. There are many ways to train a dog.

Such a Good Dog!
Barked: Mon Jun 17, '13 11:05am PST 
Tiller, I'm embarrassed to say I've made the mistake of offering the treat bag as a final jackpot reward to Gus. ...oh, and the cute trick of bringing the bag back for a refill? red face --it fostered a treat bag thief (her reach is high) and a demand barker! And dealing with two dogs, I quickly found out that system just doesn't work . . ..wink I'm such a rookie!

I often use "leave it" when I'm in thinking or training mode, but when I'm caught off guard out in the world, sometimes when a dog is just about to go for kitty poop or has a slice of pizza already in her mouth, a "Noooooooo . .." just comes out . .. .
