Hi Everyone:
Well, it's that time of year, Dusty's eating dandelions, buttercups and dirt. It's awful, he's like grazing as we walk. Any suggestions?

Thanks

walk with treats in your hand and when you see him going for something he doesn't need to be eating, get his attention with a "leave it" and let him see the treat. Treats are usually far more interesting than a bit of dirt. and praise him when you have his attention off the undesirable.

Hi, I've been doing allthat. He just chomps as he walks, and really pulls! I may have to find a different collar, where he won't pull. Any suggestions anyone?
