An Earful of Air Makes the Mouth Empty

Remember that tip I shared for a noseful of air? Well, we've picked up another bit o' advice in those comments. Reader Yogaforlife recommended an earful next.

If your pooch struggles to learn "Drop it!" and won't let go of a toy, bone, or naughty object he's grabbed in his mouth, gently blow into his ear. For some reason, the wind not only makes the pet jerk his head away, but also makes him open his mouth to let it go, too. Neat trick.

If you have more suggestions, just pop them in the comments below.
