Our girl always gets a toy or holds moms slipper (gently in her mouth), when she come home.
- this is their way of saying, "I Love you" / or bait your into playing, with them
- she likes running around the main house, to play keep-away / while getting 110% of moms attention
- she never hurts, human belongings...we trained her as a young pup, this way
- her stuffies, don't even get destroyed
- her alligator & snake, is over 5 years old / and Kelly inherited toys from former Amy
- in our case / obstruction surgery is of zero concern / our girl was proofed between 4-5 months young
- if Kelly has to stay home alone for an hour or two / she might rest her head on moms slipper, but that's it
Hugs & Kisses to Zeus xoxoxoxoxo...he having fun in photos & expressing his unique character.
- as long as, plastic bottle is taken away, if item destroying replaces harmless holding
- every toy or picked up item, has rules attached...they can learn this quickly, given much supervised freedoms
- cute boy, and like the big paws

Then he skitters away when I approach to take it away. He knew he wasn't supposed to have that bottle! lol
^^ Good little stinker there...LOL.
For "leave it" or adjust play intensity, I just loudly vocalize one command...ITCH
Kelly even has a job, of guiding Dad to bed, after midnight / so while I shut off lights & TV, she is by my side.
- holding a toy
- she even comes into the bathroom, gently holding toy
- I pet her, and eventually her toy is dropped, when she jumps on the master bed
Photo attached - Kelly with moms shoe, before her mommy gets home from work. Here is a 100% safe experience.
