Often puppies learn how to get your attention by stealing things that don’t belong to them. Of course they have their toys, but somehow they seem to know when they get a hold of your keys or remote control that the game of chase is guaranteed! You can avoid this problem with a few tips:
- Avoid chasing your puppy at all costs. Use your human brain to outsmart your puppy.
- Use confinement when you cannot be watching your puppy such as closing all bedroom doors, using baby gates or crate train your puppy.
- Teach your puppy to “drop it”.
