Putting toys up
Would I teach J to put his toys away by getting him to carry a toy he's been playing with to the spot where toys would be put away, a box, then giving the drop command? Or should I put a new word with it when he drops it into a box, such as "Toys up" so as not to confuse? And then allowing him to take a new toy, and repeat? Praise and treats of course would follow, no fun just learning.. lol
Of course he would need to learn drop it first... Not hard, that has to be one of the easiest commands to teach, it's just catching a behavior.
I never taught my dogs this, and there are toys EVERYWHERE.
And an odd question, do most of you add a hand signal to a command? I think way ahead, like if a dog goes deaf, or you are somewhere exceptionally loud and cannot be understood.
I wish I had done this with Dutch, he hears about as well as a brick, now all of knows is 'come' and 'go'... Which is me doing an exaggerated arm movement towards or away from myself.
