    Well, you did instruct him to leave it alone, so he decided to remove himself COMPLETELY from the situation.;)
    What do YOU want him to do? If you never marked what behavior you want him to do, then start now. If you just want him to sit and focus on you, tell him "leave it" then immediately "sit, stay". You don't want him scared of what he's supposed to leave alone, you just are telling him to get his nose out of it and ignore it.

    he dosnt seem scared of what he is supposed to leave he just runs away from it so i guess i should just keep him like that as then if he ever needs to remove himself from a potential crazy situation he will know what to do

    i can just picture "leave it" about a bunny and him running away.... how funny would that be?

    watch what you wish for, if you were near something and said leave, he may run in the opposite direction where you are and put himself in a more hazardous situation
    ALso if you teach him when you say leave, it means leave it alone but sit and stay, he may stay near something, skunk? moose? dead smelling carcass?
    I teach leave it means leave it don't touch! look at me instead then I can direct them to stay, move my way or go over that way, once you get their focus you can direct
