Which does your dog do ?

I think this would be considerd a training thing, (read below)

When you show your dog, (lets say) a peice of watermelon, would your dog take a bite of it, or lick it.

Sparky licks it, and I don't like that, because if I offer it to him i'd like it to not be 'drained'.
I'm trying to teach him a 'bite it' command. Obviously used just on food and I wont use it for evil.

So would your dog lick it or take a chunk ?

i'm not sure i understand what you are asking. drained?
when i show my dog something that i am not sure he likes, like a bit of apple, he will sniff it and lick it. if he wants it he will bite it. when i've shown him things i don't know that he likes but assume he wants, like the first time i gave him liver, he bites it right off (liver just smells so dang good)
my dog is a good size too, so he can bite stuff more easily, i have found that some little dogs take a bit longer to actually bite into a treat and will often lick at them for a bit (depending on the dog and the treat)....

does that help?

Maybe he does not prefer watermelon. Have you tried a beefy treat?

I teach "take it" ("bite it" sounds...I dunno...evil...like you said) with a toy. Its not hard to get a dog to bite food (unless is som'thing they don't like...)

LOL I didn't even think to say this but I use "take it" for everything...when I feed my dogs they sit, leave it, then take it. for treats take it. toys, take it, etc

My Sheltie (the vacuum cleaner for food) won't eat watermelon, cantalope or lettuce. Only 3 things we've found so far that he won't eat.
