Our 3.5 month old pup gets really aggressive when we try to remove an item from his mouth (sock, shoe, towel, rock, etc). I used to be able to force his mouth open and remove the item, but now it has gotten to the point where he gets really upset and has actually bitten us. Any other time he is good and is friendly with other people and dogs. He usally nibbles on our fingers when we play, but doesn't bite too hard. I also pet him and stick my hand in his bowl while he eats and there are no signs of aggression. It's only when we try to take away something from him. Is there a way to correct this? I'm starting to teach him to let go of things, but I can only do it with treats. I want to correct this now while he's young and don't want to get caught in a situation where he has a hold of something and I don't have any treats to get him to let go.
