When Rohan came to live with me, he was really bad about stealing stuff and chewing them. I think he's previous owners chased him whenever he had something he shouldn't and probably punished him when they caught him (though I'm 100% certain he hasn't been abused). So while Rohan has never been at all resource aggressive, he is very very insecure when he has something. He is so worried that I'm going to take he's toy or whatever away from him that he can't really relax and runs away if I make any movement towards him. I started to teach him 'leave it' but that's not going so well, also I always give him something better if I take something away from him and of course I never ever chase him. He's gotten little bit better especially after we started playing this game where I throw him a toy and than start playing with identical toy -> he comes to see what I'm doing and joins the game so he gets that toy and I go and get the one he discarded. Now he brings me those toys to play with which makes me super happy but he only does this with the toys we have already practiced with. With new things he is just as skittish as he was in the beginning. This really bothers me because I'd like him to trust me with he's resources. I'd really like him to be able to just lay down and chew the stick he just found even if I do walk by him (or just looking at him makes him bolt). Any ideas on how to improve he's trust with me would be super appreciated! Also I'd love to hear about any experiences similar dogs and how/if they have gotten better?
