I think sometimes you need to turn it on it’s head and look at why he is doing it - and for many pups they learn that stealing an item leads to great fun of a chase and then some super tasty treats. Things like leave and drop are great, but does this get a similar level of reward to staking things - probably not.

To resolve it you need a new ploy, have a family discussion about mega tidying of important stuff and “accidentally” drop some safe stuff that pup can steal and you can ignore.

Think about how you currently deal with things and why that is fuelling the behaviour and work out from that how you can do things differently
