my dog is the same way. she only does it with bones and her new prey model diet. never did it with kibble. she is also a bit aggressive toward other dogs when i give her or them a treat in the same area.I have had River since he was eight weeks. He is 3 1/2 months now. I have worked with him on his food and he now waits patiently until I tell him to get it at feeding times. Now when I give him a bone with meat on it for a treat its a different story. As soon as I get close to him to take it away he will growl and snap. He has not bit me but I am thinking this is not going to be good when he gets older. I can not seem to figure out how to beat this problem. This happens only with the bones.
But that is why you take baby steps in training. I wouldn't expect him to drop a RMB right off the bat, you have to work up to that level. In the meantime, just don't try and take his food away while he is eating, because obviously you can't stop feeding him.I have a little, but I really do not think its good enough to make him drop it. I will concentrate on leave it for the next few days and see what happens. Thanks. :wink:
If you look at the date of the OP it was back in February when this thread was started. Orange must have had a reason for deleting His/Her post. But, If anyone else is having this problem then the suggestions given on this thread are very good ones.Just wonderng why the posts were deleted
