Hi, I have the same problem with Billy. I found that constantly training him with the 'Leave' command has helped a lot. If you can spare about 15 minutes a day and take one of his favourite toys. When he picks up the toy, say 'Leave', if he drops the toy give him a very tasty treat like Chicken (or something he loves to eat). Keep up with the command training and over time when he's picked up something he shouldn't, once you use 'Leave' he knows automatically to drop it.

Great advice about 'Leave It' = Honey will drop things if told now, in anticipation of a yummy treat!
Also, when Honey was 3 months, she ate an earplug!! I was mortified, rushed her to the vets etc etc, they said to just wait and see and if it didnt come out naturally, then it might mean a blockage and she would have to go in. Luckily she sicked it up the next day, disgusting!

I love "leave it" Chloe is really good at it too. We made this a focus point after Chloe decided to eat a zip tie! Now even if she is eating/chewing something she loves, she will leave as told.

Chasing after your dog makes it a great time! Giving a treat to 'trade' him for an object you want is not bribery. Train him to give/drop something in exchange for a treat. The dog will catch on soon. Just remember that chasing is a great game for him!

And the grandson! He has hysterics every time I do it. I have a circular table in the kitchen so I end up going round and round it with Rolo getting faster and the grandson (16 months) roars his head off. Sometimes he joins in as well so as you can imagine Rolo thinks this is tremendous great fun
