If your puppy gets hold of something that you donít want her to play with, intervene quickly. Don't yell; this will only scare her. Also, don't chase your puppy to try to retrieve the item. She may think youíre playing a game with her.
Keep a ready supply of more interesting toys or treats. Offering your puppy a treat or one of these toys should cause her to drop your possession and choose the appropriate one. Be patient. Eventually, your puppy will learn that she must play with her own toys.
Limiting access to your personal belongings is important. Pick up your belongings and keep closet doors closed.
Keep a close watch on her whenever she's freely roaming.
