A.) When he comes to you with a toy grab ahold of the toy say "Drop" and pry his mouth open. DO NOT let him play tug of war that is a very very bad habit.
B.) When he comes up to you with a toy take a hold of it and say drop, if he does not then let go of the toy and turn your back to him. By not paying attention to him he will soon get the idea that you are not happy with him and if he wants to keep playing he will start to listen trust me.
Him dropping the bird at my feet has nothing to do with him wanting to pull his toys

and to further my point consider this... you teach him (or allow it atleast) to play tug-o-war with his toy how does he know you do not do it with a bird???
i'm not going to respond anymore to this becuase if your dead set in your ways nothing i could say would change your mind anyhow but im telling you that with a few small changes (not to say you have to take away toys) you could have twice the dog you curently have but if your not willing to listen then i wish you the best with what you got!! happy hunting
