This is a fun trick that you can train your dog to put his toys away, whether you're wanting your dog to impress your guests or if you want to him to clean up, this is a simple trick to train. (The directions are when using a clicker.)
- Hand you dog a toy and tell him to "take it;" when he has the toy in his mouth, click and treat him for holding it.
- Put the toy box between your feet and encourage the dog to come to you; click and treat him for holding the toy over the toy box.
- Repeat the previous step, but ask the dog to "drop it" as he hold the toy over the box.
- Put the toy on the floor and tell him to "take it;" click and treat him for picking up the toy.

- Replace the ‘take it' and ‘drop it' cues with the new cue ‘toys away' by saying the new cue right before the old cue. Gradually fade out the old cue.
