Can anyone give me a step-by-step method for training a dog to open her mouth on command? She's pretty responsive to "drop it" and "leave it," but there's always that 1 object that's too exciting and too small for me to see/catch before it ends up in her mouth. I'd like to be able to give her an "open" command and have her open her mouth so I can see what's in there. Would be good for giving her pills and for exams, too.
Has anyone figured out how to do this? Thanks.
