You reach to give your dog a treat. Ouch! Wow, that bite is intense! OR They jump all over you and then sit down; then immediately jump all over you again in anticipation of the treat = very rude…
Giving your dog treats should be enjoyable for both of you. Some dogs more naturally have a gentle mouth, while others, we must teach . ALL dogs, however, benefit from the playing of these games. Continuing to learn personal boundaries is key for a dog to mature and VITAL if your dog will ever be around small children. These games will improve their attention, listening skills, their gentle bite, and overall manners.
In this video, the young pup is pawing and getting frustrated… the key here is to be patient, wait for the pawing to stop and release the treat!
