glowingtoadfly I was going to say, ten minutes is pretty good for a pup. My nine month old puppy only wants to play for ten minutes!

^ This. Ten minutes is actually a pretty long time to expect an 11 week old puppy to remain engaged with you. It would be better to break that up into several shorter sessions.

Offering treats to the puppy while he/she has the knuckle bone, then walking away, will condition her to expect that your approach to the bone means good things will happen. My girl and boy have both been known to resource guard, and this is what we do with them.
I just read a article on resource guarding and how to help it. I will use some of those techniques when were a little more attached.

TheDakotaShow [QUOTE=wyoung2153;5325737]I gave my 12 week old beef rib bones and beef marrow bones. I haven't tried knuckle bones but a lot recommend them.







At least she'd be playing with the toy
