    Does his fur raise when you try to take the toy or come near?
    No. He just stops playing and starts watching my hand. If I get too close to his toy (which is usually in his mouth), he'll growl.

    OMG..Stinky does the same thing. I did teach him to drop it when told. But the "guys" don't make him do that. So now he will growl and it scares me. He will NOT drop his toy or anything else unless I tell him to drop it and offer a treat or spray him with the bottle. But its kinda of funny he wants to drink from the bottle...so I have to spray his paws. And he doesn't like that. And when family or friends come over I have to tell them DO NOT take it from him. I'm afraid that he will bite. Sometimes the hair on his back will stand up. So I know he does mean business. I don't know what to do. And how can I work with him again if the guys don't make him do the same thing?Stinky just turn a year old yesterday.I can't let this go on any longer. Plus its causing a problem between his dad and I.

    He's very aggressive when we play tug but he doesn't growl, or bite. He knows if I can't get it, it's game over so he always releases in the end (but man my arm gets a work out).

    The growling and snapping happens when he's playing alone with his toys.
    @Chumley do you walk away when he growls, or do you take the toy away?
    i walk away..but probably the right thing to do is take it away..but if I did i would be taking everything. He wants whatever I pick up...if he's zoned in on his ball and I pick up the rubber bone then he wants the bone...he has possession aggression..he'll let little kids lie all over him, use him as a pillow without so much as budging...but if he's playing outside with a toy he's a completely different personality...just playing but I'm afraid one day a kid will try and take away his toy and get snapped at.

    I am at work and will try to remember to post a vieo of Banks playing with me.... very rough and LOUD! She is Miss Dominate, but we had to work very hard with her as a puppy/toddler to make her realize she does not own anything and if we say 'drop' it is dropped. One thing to never do is take an item and not return it... do not throw something away when the pup is able to see you do so. I learned this at daycaare, we were instrcuted to remove the object from the area, but let them know it wold be returned.... 'losing the item' casues them to think if I let go or they take it I will not get it back ---- something like that... so it is a long road to get this set and for us Banks is very food motivated and worked for us.

    We also had issue with her stealing food from Nitschke so we had to train her to not go to her bowl till told and not touch a touy if we said no.

    I am of no help but wanted to say two things:

    1. I can't believe he's already one! I remember when I met him, he was just a little fella.
    2. Great thread, very helpful. Thanks for starting it.

    When we got Amber, we were looking for a bully that was rough and tough and could handle her own. Well, that is exactly what we got, Amber loves toys and believes all toys are hers no matter if they are hers or the grandbabies or Kristana's. New toys are fair game the minute they enter the house, she will let you play with them and try to protect them from you by holding them with her paws and on occassion she may growl but it is playful. She will fight you for the toy back. We went back for Ruby a year later because of Amber's qualities and have not been disappointed; Ruby also believes toys are hers but she is not a possessive about them as Amber is.
