Not something he loves. Part of showing him he has to is using something he doesnt love. PVC, a dowell, pipe. I got the idea to not correct or hold his mouth closed when he has something in it. I used to, but I saw this and then started looking into the idea:

A little pop under the chin if he drops it or later on when I'm actually trying to slip it from his mouth.
