We are having some of the same problems with our Dylan ( 8 months). He likes to steal our socks and slippers and then when we try to get them back, he growls or snaps at us. We had a trainer come to our house to work on it with us. We have worked on the "drop it" command. Which works about 90% of the time. However, when he gets into is severe disobedient times, she suggested spraying Bitter Apple in his mouth. Then when it drops the item or stops growling, quickly give him a treat. We are having a lot of luck with these tips. She also suggested that we work on it EVERY day, even if he has been doing good for a few days. That way, he won't surprise us someday and then he is constenly reminded of the comands.

It definitely helps to know that we're not the only ones out there. My husband and I were convienced that we were doing a bad job raising our doodle. But the trainer kept telling us that his is at the age to test us and we just need to keep reminding Dylan that we are the boss.
