Re: How to teach to not grab things out of hands
I would think you could teach that NO food come from your hands...it either gets tossed on the floor or tossed in the air for him to catch.
Wait and leave it work well.
In the CGC class last week, the instructor was holding a piece of food in her hand and let this one puppy smell, lick, and try to pry her hand open, but the dog only got the food (a different piece of food actually) when she finally left the hand alone. I watched her do this and within a few minutes the puppy had the idea. I did something like this with Mandi by teaching her to take it "nice" so she would not grab things out of my kids hands.
