Teaching an Excited Rescue Dog Leave It to Develop Impulse Control

For this Omaha dog training session, we worked with Baxter, a two-year-old rescue Pit mix, teaching him to control and manage his excitement.

Training a dog to manage their excitement starts with practicing impulse control. An easy way to start teaching impulse control is through a leave it command. Teaching a dog to leave things alone on command is important because it provides dogs with a foundation for practicing self-control and helps you keep them from getting into trouble.

Here’s a free positive dog training video that explains how to teach a dog the leave it command.

The great thing about teaching leave it is that anyone can do it, even if you’re not a professional Pit Bull mix trainer. Helping a dog learn to develop impulse control by teaching the leave it command gives you the ability to start working on managing excitement in other areas.

To help Baxter’s guardians remember all of the positive dog training tips that we covered in our in-home Omaha dog training session we recorded a roadmap to success video that can be viewed below.
