Tessa seconds that! and adds children's tennis/waffle balls that have been left in the front yard of their houses are fair game to her.

That's right, my pup robs toys from children!!

From our walk this morning: Milky Way wrapper, piece of a flattened aluminum can, rocks, sticks (well, duh), sock, piece of broken pottery, and lots of things I don't have time to identify Amazingly, Cobber's not interested in bird poop... really surprised by that!

When I first got Moose we were living in Brooklyn and we lived near Broadway and often walked Broadway and there are several fried chicken places near our house and people would leave bones everywhere. So frustrating! So the very first thing we ever taught her was 'drop it' everyone is always so impressed with how she always drops what she has (though sometimes it takes a few times saying it if there's a squeaky ball involved those are her favorite!) I'd suggest really pounding in that command cause it can really save you if your pup gets his mouth on something he shouldn't! We did it by putting our fingers under her tongue and praising and rewarding when she dropped the toy. Then eventually she started doing it unassisted and we did the same. Now she does it no matter what!

We also started using a gentle leader for the same reason as we could pull her head away from things she wanted to eat. She found out quickly that we'd pull her away from things she tried to eat to the point were eventually she just left them alone! The gentle leader also helped a lot with our pulling issue. We used it for about a year and now she pulls only sometimes (we still carry it around with us just in case. Since moving out of Manhattan she pulls a lot more and it helps us keep her in check) they have all sorts of sizes and you can open them up at the store and make sure they fit. I like the gentle leader more than the halti because I feel I have more control over her face. Which is important for walk snackers.
