What's the difference?

Seems Victoria uses leave it and no touch interchangeable so what's the difference?

From what I understand, it doesn't really matter what the cue is called. For the behavior of "back away from object and turn away", both "leave it" and "no touch" can be used. Heck, any words can as long as you stick with it. What the behavior is called is up to the owner but the what the behavior is called must be consistent--not "no touch" while the dog is getting into the trash on Wednesday or "leave it" when the dog is getting into the trash on Friday. Pick a word for the behavior and stick with it.
