Puppies explore their new world with their mouths. Rocks, sticks, mulch, socks, remote controls; you name it, puppies will put it in their mouths. But trying to pry things out of their mouths can cause resource guarding and can increase the risk that you will be bitten. That's why it is so important to teach Drop It and Leave It, which we did today with Ninja. She did so well!
