Hi Snuggles,
In my case, I just sprinkled it in the hole and covered it up with dirt and sprinkled a little more. It worked. I am not sure about putting it on paper.

Hi, Snuggles,

You don't say what kind of dog you have or if it's male or female or how old it is, but it sounds like your dog is trying to dominate. It's very important to assert, or reassert, your dominance - quickly, for your peace of mind and your dog's well being. Be insistent. Even if you dog has something that's okay, make him give it to you, examine it, then, if it's something it's all right for him to have, give it back to him. Make him wait to go out the door BEHIND you - never ahead. You'll probably need to get his leash back out and go back to some of the basic training lessons, not necessarily because he's forgotten them, but to remind him that he is to submit to YOUR orders, not the other way around. If he's comfy on the couch, make him move and sit down where he was lying, but do reach down and pet him. Be sure to praise him everytime he submits to you, that way submission is a desirable thing for your dog instead of just you being a tyrant. Give him extra attention when he is recognizing your place as the Big Dog, and whatever you do, be consistent. Don't allow him to take precedence. It will confuse him and he will be very unhappy, and we all know an unhappy dog gets into trouble, whether it's chewing your shoes up or biting the neighbor (although sometimes the neighbor deserves it!)

Thanks for the info. I will try in late date. Right now he has heart worm, and I didn't relize it till today but since the 2 treatments of injection he has been more tolerant of use taking things from him. We can even put our fingers in his mouth when he gets things and he gives then up. Right to now we don't want to punish to much or even change the way things where before he got sick. We are also going to use his new behavior by praising him for giving things up. Maybe he will learn treats are better than going in his cage.
By the way he is a 3 year old toy poodle, and has been snapping for the last year.

You've got the right idea while he's recovering from his heartworm treatments. They shouldn't be agitated and need to be kept very quiet during that period. My big Shepherd/Akita dog, Bear, had to be treated for heartworms and had to be kept calm for several weeks afterward.

At three years, he's at the right age to be trying to assert dominance.
