Building bond and engagement with arrogant, selfish sport dog puppy
I have a puppy who is almost 5 months old. He is very possessive, arrogant, selfish, and not as happy as the rest of litter.
I got him to train IPO and he is going to be a challange, I think he is going to be a very serious dog when he is older. I like him so I am looking for advice on how to build the bond and engagement with me, atm he loves himself too much.
I have done some training in all phases, his tracking is good, protection will be good, nice grips and chase atm. Obedience will be difficult. Its ok for his age but he gets distracted easy.
I have some ideas of what I'm going to do but am hoping people with experience with these types of dogs can give me some advice as what has worked for them.
