What food, training treats or your lunch? If he is mugging you to get treats then stop whatever you were working on and put him through his paces on things he knows well and give him treats for his best responses. If he is trying to get your lunch, well why the heck is it in the picture while you are training unless you are prepared to lose it while trying to teach leave it.

If I am working a dog and they go off the rails I will stop for a play break since I often think failures are a sign of stress or lack of understanding. Play helps the dog to release stress and to reconnect to me. Then I can go back to what I was doing in a new way that lets him/her to work through the exercise in parts that will be successful. If you end up being mad then you need to quick do one thing that is successful and stop. No training while mad.
