Re: Teaching a dog to refuse food offered by stran

I'm new here but would like to make a suggestion. Make sure you also teach the dog not to eat food that may have been left on the ground, etc. Never know when somebody might have set some poison or antifreeze tainted meat or food out, or just plain rancid food.

Also suggest that if you leave or plan on leaving your dog at a kennel that you and the kennel owner discuss the cue to feed the dog and that you make sure the dog will accept food from the owner before you leave. Everyone in your immediate family should be involved in this type of training just in case you have to go out of town, enter the hospital for any length of time, etc. Choose a way off base single word that most people would not know to say.
