Imagine if I gave you $1 and then tried to take it away from you. How hard would you resist?

Now imagine I gave you $1,000? NOW how hard would you resist when I tried to take it from you?

That's the difference to Zach. The bone is MUCH more valuable and he wants to keep it.

I prefer to train my dogs to allow me to take ANYTHING they have instead of ignoring the issue - just in case one of them picks up something I don't want them to have.

Here's a link to my page on dealing with food aggression:
