    Good calm is what you want  ;D we don’t use the Dom word on here as it’s really just about management, you need to train the wait sit and go greet when you have people come to your home if you stick it in the search box Kiz has written articles on this.
    As for the treats if you are wanting them for training look up training treats, if you can’t find it come back and someone will, the trouble with shop brought treats is they are full of rubbish that will send him hyper.
    If you want something to leave him with if you are out try a Kong

    My husband sat and hand fed him this morning and saying `mine`.He was quite happy and calm so we will keep trying.I was wondering if he’s trying to be dominant as well. A lot of time its just me and Dylan and he can sometimes act as if he owns the place. I’m being a bit more stricter with him to see if that helps. He can give a growl sometimes if I move him out the way i.e. if someone comes to door. He can be quite boisterous. Thanks for answering me kizkiznobite, any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Should I not give any chews? Bought James Wellbeloved food for him today.

    Been feeding Dylan a bit at a time and no chews. How long before he can have full dinner and chews? If he growls, what is the best thing to do. As he is a pup and his back teeth will be coming in I would like to give him a chew, but worried he will growl. He won’t give chew up once he has got it

    No chews he must have nothing that you can’t get back  😉 how are you doing with the mine/yours with his food?

    Not a problem, if he fine no grumbling then start doing the leave, once you have that you should be able to start and stop him eating the object is for you to have full control over food don’t rush it take it calmly and quietly so he stops getting into a frenzy

    How do I do the `leave`? Do you mean I stop him eating during a meal? Can’t ever see him doing that, when left alone with his dinner he is in a total frenzy to eat it. I will try anything though

    One ball at a time just as you have been doing. mine/leave thats why you do it in the hand because all you have to do is shut your hand if he goes near it when you have said leave.
    He will possible always be a pig or as we call them food inhalers thats not the problem here a ball or a brick in the bowl will slow him down.
    His problem is food aggression I think he pee’s because he has been shouted at or has been frightened when he eats, you should always be able to take food off a dog if you can’t it comes under the heading of a dangerous dog so stick with it.
    What was his kennel name ?

    Been giving him his full dinner by hand doing the wait/leave and no bones or chews. His pedigree name is Louama Blue Print.

    Mrs Hunter owns the Affix there is no record of showing well it was worth a shot the showdogs are usually layback far more than a worker if it’s a worker pedigree they are much harder work
    Nice name for a Blue Roan

    Thanks for checking Val. Let me know when you think I should be trying him with full dinner on own, and chews. Will keep feeding by hand till then, just hope it works, will be so disapointed if it doesn’t.
