I adopted a beagle mix about a month ago who is approx 1.5yrs old. he is very possessive of toys and treats around my toddler and I have consulted with a trainer but as I have a toddler she does not really listen she just wants to give him treats. i have played dominant and positive reinforcement and now i am at a loss. perfect dog otherwise. What do I do?
