Victoria,
I love your show and I am trying to use techniques to help my wild crazy dogs. When you did the "turn away" training you did it at the end with both dogs in the room together to help strengthen their impulse control. What do you do if the dogs are jealous of each other/compete over food? We have to separate our two labs any time we want to do any training because they are SO food motivated that the minute they see a treat they don't focus on anything but getting the treat. If we are treating one dog, the other is all over us, even if we are trying to train that one as well.

Also, any reason you chose "turn away" instead of "leave it" like you have in other episodes?

Thanks!
