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”.
