Unhappy the little monster growled and snapped at me

This little guy, Ike, got a toothpick that my husband had, when I saw him with it, I went to grab him to take it, he grawled at me and snapped. I tell him no, very sternly. I have never had a young puppy do that. Looks like I am going to have to start cracking down on him.

My girl tried that a couple of times with me..it got her nowhere but a "time out"..Nowadays, whenever she has something in her mouth that is out of the ordinary, she will run to "show" me and we trade for a treat.

I agree with you, show him who is boss now that he is still a pup...and an adorable one!!! I love him!

Thanks Anna, I love your Kalisee, she has a beautiful face. When I was growing up we had a white Chihuahua, his name was Tiny Tim.

Aww, don't take it personally. He's testing you to see what he can get away with. As long as you correct it now, you shouldn't have problems in the future.

I'm with Anna. I had the exact same thing with Mylo a week or two ago. He got a time out and he hasn't done it since

I think they all try to push the limits a little when they are pups. it doesn't take to much to correct the behavior I just look at Charlie with a very disappointed look and in a stern voice ask him what the heck he doing. and say shame on you growling and snapping at mom. he gets very upset with himself and puts his tail down and slinks away. I never yell or raise a hand but Charlie knows i'm disappointed in him and thats all it take to correct any bad behavior. Dogs want to please their masters and if they have done something that doesn't please you they will correct the behavior immediately and never do it again. Unless they are very young pups then you may have so correct them a couple times before it sinks in especially when it comes to potty training. and I don't think that is intensional I think like most youngsters they would rather play then have to stop and go potty so they wait too long and then they can't hold it any longer so accidents happen.

yep! I had that problem with Angel. I think it's the coming at them that scares them a little. Now, I just tell him to drop it!

Hahaha Anna! I have to do the same thing sometimes! If I am quick enough and have something good enough, he will gladly trade!

Luckily Jaxx has never done this to me but I have had my hands in his mouth since probably the day we got him taking things out on walks that he is not supposed to have.
I use drop it too and he does it but sometimes he decides to chew on it for another time or two before he drops it so if it looks small I will just reach down and put my fingers in and grab it.
If we have access to something that I can trade for I trade him for something better. Unfortunately, usually he grabs stuff (his favorite is wood chips) while we are on walks and decides to make a snack on them. I try to catch him before and say no but sometimes right after I say no he will skip whatever he is going after and grab something that is close trying to be sneaky.
