|Does daycare know about this? Maybe they could work with him, too.
We actually don't have a lot of toys left loose. Either one of the 3 is inside and gets to play by him/herself or they have a toy for crating. And we don't crate a lot. More like for a biggo management problem....but mostly for illness, recovery from surgery, etc.
I just think it's weird that Watt doesn't care if another dog spends the night and grabs toys or gets on the sofa, but he can be kind of obnoxious with his siblings. And he only has this problem inside the house.
We don't really use toys for a 'calming down thing.' Maybe it would be nice if somedog would chew on a bone while we were watching some exciting TV show, but they all know what "That will be all!" and
"Fonzies! 3 little Fonzies!" means.
Watt otherwise has great manners with dogs. He taught his pesty sister the proper 'bite inhibition' stuff for dog mouth-wrasslin' purposes.
Someone else on Dogster (but I can't remember who), said they had seen this crop up in mature male Goldens.
It's so strange because you can take anything away from him. The first thing I taught him as a puppy was 'Drop It" and he literally spits stuff out. Sometimes all it takes is 'a look' from his mommy, BOL!
And unlike the other 2, he generally won't try to steal a toy that I've put away off a shelf........his Golden brain works in mysterious ways...
