What would YOU do if your dog did this? Our dog Buddy, often play-growls with us when we do tog-of-war with him. We have never corrected this and do not see this as a problem. Unless we ARE PLAYING tug-o-war, Anyone in his pack can and will be able to take any toy away from him, no growl, no problem. Yesterday, a 9 year old girl reached down to pull a toy Buddy was chewing on away from him. Buddy did move but did growl. This frightened the girl and she backed away. Until i saw her surprised face, i hadn't thought much of it, but now i am thinking, should i correct that when Buddy does this? He never ever does this when WE take his toys away, if that is helpful info to respond. Also, if we are supposed to be correcting Buddy growling at someone taking his toy, do we just say "no" or what? THANK YOU IN ADVANCE TO ANY INSIGHT!!
