Does anyone have issues with their donor puppy taking treats from their hands or snapping at their hands with treats ?  How can I get Khan to take treats less aggressively.  Sometimes he really hurts me.

I kept the treat in my fist and he would have to work it out to get it. I would never give it him if he act like he never ate and snapped at me like that, that would reward the unwanted behavior. You can also try feeding like you would a horse with a flat hand.

Yah holding my hand flat works.  But doing tricks like roll over requires me to hold it over him to follow it and he just always snaps for it... Kinda viciously... His teeth are so sharp.
