Aside from the normal no, ow, redirect or ignore we used a spray bottle as well with luck but there are times when even that doesn't work. What we have found that works best for us that stops Harlea in her tracks and pulls her attention directly to us is a canned of compressed air like the stuff you use to blow dust out of your keyboard. Pet stores sell the stuff under the as seen on TV brand Oh Noooo. Do not buy it from a pet store. They are charging $10 or more for an itty bitty can. Got to your favorite electronics store or WalMart and get the computer stuff in a larger can for a lot less money and it is the same thing. Just be sure never to spray it directly at your pup as it will cause frostbite.
