I'm just wondering if anyone has a good method (or links) for teaching a dog to ignore food that is left out or is on the ground. I know how to train a "leave it" but I want to know how to train a dog to ignore food without a "leave it" cue or when you are not present. For example I hear people say how they can leave a steak on a coffee table and leave the room and come back and it's still there. Or if the dog is in the yard and they find something edible while the person is not present they don't touch it. How do you train that?
