Our new boy Reo has this habit of refusing to make eye contact while he has a toy he wants to play with. If I touch the toy he gets even more excited and wants to play tug. We have tried treats, refusing to play but can't seem to get him to realease the toy or look at us for direction. If we do get the toy away he jumps at it and tried to get it away from us. He is pretty rough when he wants to play or even when we initiate play and calming him down is a little difficult.

Any suggestions on how to get him to focus on us and not the toy and how to teach him to release/drop the toy on command and leave it until we do whatever with it?

He watches us when it comes to getting his food and when we are giving him a treat but add toy to the mix and no such luck.

He also will not for anyting give eye contact on a walk.

Help please :)
