Taking food out of toodler's hand
Hi! Im a new doberman owner and we are so very in love with our dobe his name is Dunkan he is 5 months old and he is just amazing. I work from home so I am always around him although we are crate training him. He goes on a walk everyday except if its raining he HATES rain. I have a two year old daughter and a 6 year old son. My husband me and the kids usually take him on a long hike on the weekend. Dunkan is pretty smart and knows some comands: sit, lay down, gives me 5, shake, drop it, speak, we are working on leave it, and stay. He is very smart and protective. As a general rule if I can not actively watch him especially around the kids he goes in his crate or in our fenced yard. Tonight my daughter grabbed a piece of pizza before I could stop her and he ate it right out of her hand! I must emphasize he did not hurt her at all. However she was pretty upset (she loves pizza) and my son was pretty upset. He has never done this before and I take full responsibility for what happened as I should have put him in his crate they just moved so fast. However I want to do things right. I want to train him properly so that he understand what to do and he and the kids are safe. For now obviously no more pizza at arms reach and I will make sure he is safe in his crate before the kids have any food. But what can I do so that he learns that he can not take food from my daughter or son?
Thank you for your help!
