    Whenever my dog gets a new toy, she will become very possessive of it for the first few days. If I give her a bunch of new toys, she picks one and becomes possessive of that one.

    Does anyone have any tips on dealing with this behaviour ? thanks!

    Have you tried the “trade game”. When you dog is playing with a coveted toy, get a really high value treat, trade the toy for a treat saying “drop it” then give the toy back. REPEAT, REPEAT,REPEAT until your pup is happily offering the toy when you say “drop it”.
