Re: Budding food aggressive behavior

Just wanted to share that I have a ten week old girl who started showing food aggression issues at about 7-8 weeks. We've been playing the "trade" game where we started just walking by and dropping her a treat while eating and can now ask her to drop what she's eating and she will quickly ...

Re: Budding food aggressive behavior

Im far from an expertbut I've been dealing with a bit of food aggression in my ten week old girl as well. I feed her in her crate and also give her any high value treats (for her, greenies) in there as well so there is no stress of having to guard her food. Also I occasionally ask her to "drop ...

when play gets out of hand

Our 7 week old puppy is starting to get pretty agile and a little more pushy, testing her limits with biting. She will sometime get really riled up and bite our feet and pant leg, and want to tug on your pants or chase and bite your feet when you walk away. It used to stop her in her tracks when you...

Re: socializing my puppy
