The video says "private"
We've come to notice a few naughty behaviors coming from Chubbs & we have no idea how to handle it.
1. Food & treat aggression has begun. When he was a younger puppy, there were no issues. We could put hands in the bowl & pet him with no problems. Not anymore. Watch the video, you'll see what happens. You can see my hand quickly in the video. I didn't feel like getting bit as I was trying to get his reaction on tape.
When giving Chubbs treats, he's so excited that he 'grabs' them out of our hands.
Chubbs got me bad last night. We understand he's a puppy, that's he's an animal, that he's teething & that he doesn't want to hurt us but it does. We just dont know what the correct thing is. We firmly say No but it doesn't seem to work. The only thing that works, and I don't like it... saying NO & put him in his crate. Please help!

The video says "private"
I can't remember how to make the video 'unlisted'.
You have to make the video public.
“It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough,all the components of my heart will be dog,and I will become as generous and loving as they are"
No, still says private. Can you paste the youtube link into the post, then we can click on that.
Got a look at the video, and yep, Chubbs sure is telling you he wants to be "boss". He's testing you. Do not allow him to "grab" the treats out of your hands. You must have him follow a basic obedience command before he can have the treat to show him the treat is his reward and you give him the treats, he doesn't TAKE them from u. When he starts growling at you like he was in the video is when you should give him some more basic obedience commands to follow; it could be "SIT" or "DOWN" (altho he was already down in the video). This will give him some sense of structure and tell him that he must listen to mom and dad. When he follows the command then reward him with a treat. I'm sure others will be able to help more but that's what i can think of for now. Keep working at it...Chubbs is a cutie!
I want to be perfectly clear. Chubbs is a great dog & we love him very much. The only time he's like this is when we take away his food and chewies.
Another suggestion i was reading about re. Chubbs and the treats is instead of giving him a treat to chew on by himself, you can hand-feed him a few bits of treats so that he gets used to your hand giving him the treats. You can do this by sitting on the floor, close to him. And every time he calmly takes a treat from you, then compliment and praise him in a positive/cheery voice.
