I have to admit, that I just put the treats on the ground since my Sting was the same way. He was so excited that he just grabbed. Now he will take a treat gently if I hold my hand flat. I haven't tried this, but I have read, to put a spoon in your hand over the treat hiding it - when the dog grabs he gets the spoon not the treat. If he doesn't grab - open up your hand and he can get the treat. There is another way in this article that doesn't use a spoon Teaching Your Dog to Take Treats Gently | The Bark Here is a video
