Is your puppy possessive with toys or food?

Is your puppy possessive with toys or food?
Practice this:
Trade *up* for some GREAT treat, toy or a chunk of cheese or meat. Eventually she will know that when you take something away she will get something better…she will happily give you her bone for a chunk of tasty meat!
Start with things that she is not as possessive about and work up to food, bones or whatever she is possessive about.
Practice, practice, practice…short lessons, many times per day.

This is an EXCELLENT video for training your dog or puppy the ‘Drop’ command.


Have FUN with your training sessions! The more you *play* with your dog in ways that incorporate training for what you want…the more your dog will DO what you want! Enjoy!


As always…if you have a new puppy…or if you know someone who does…or if you want to learn more about puppies…check out my new website! Go to:
