You unfortunately have to monitor TWO thresholds - the dogs and your sons.

If your son gets to hyped up it likely will affect the dog.

And you aren't supposed to be using the dogs regular food. You want to use an EXTREMELY high value treat - like some cooked chicken breast or beef jerky.

Boring kibble in the bowl but when boy approaches AWESOME treats come!!

Sounds like you are on the right track, let your son throw the treats while you observe everyones behaviors. It's great that you have recognized a problem and are willing to work through it. Too many take the easy way out and issues can eaisly become worse.

Kuddos to you!!

Thanks I don't quit on anyone easily, I had to fight for my sons right for a mainstream education cause he was misdiagnosed as autistic, I almost gave up a couple of times and thought he would never speak. but i always pick myself back up and rethink my strategies, he is a now a 6 yr old chatterbox with ADHD and a cured expressive language disorder.
My dog is just the same, i will not just take the easy way out without first trying everything in my power to fix what is wrong.
will keep you all updated

Try using hot dogs, tripe, and liver. My pup is raw fed and I used those to break his food guarding, my theory was the hot dogs are delicious, and tripe and liver are rarities in his diet. Maybe some shawerma would be good too, nice and greasy
