"Drop, Step and Treat" is one of those really simple pieces of training that helps to ensure your dog's safety when you're out and about.

It addresses the problem that if you accidentally drop the lead, there's the possibility that your dog might be inclined to run off, especially if they're spooked by the sound of the lead hitting the floor.
