Sadly, I found out a few days ago that chance guards bones. I was petting him while he was chewing, and I've taken food and toys away from him, so I didn't think this would be a problem. I noticed he would stop chewing when I would pet him. That wasn't a good sign. Later, I took a stick and poked his bone, and he growled. So, how can I SAFELY teach him that me taking his bones away is okay? I do NOT want to rush things. The last thing he needs is a history of biting…. I've never had to deal with this before, so I'm not sure how to handle this.
