How do you get back the things your dog steals? We've started to give Mugsy a little more freedom in the house when we are inside, but he has decided his favorite game is keep away. Today he grabbed my pencil and ran around like crazy with it. I was worried he would hurt himself because he was carrying it in his mouth, pointy part inward. I tried sitting on the floor, which usually gets him to come to me, and many other tactics that usually work. I think he knew that I really wanted the pencil back, because nothing worked. I was really getting angry, even though he was having the time of his life. So advice PLEASE (!!!), how do you handle these situations?
