Well, don't praise a day beore the sundown, eh? For some reason when he was sleeping in his crate he stood up and immediately peed, and we couldn't do anything... Then I took him outside, stood there for 30 minutes and half of the time he just stood by the fence to the door trying to get out and whining. Took him inside, into the crate, then he pooped inside -_- Uh Geez, and I was so happy ^_^

You know what, I give up. I will never be able to train him with my parents at home.
After training Zack to give paw, my dad just took the clicker and started clicking repeatedly 10 times a second... The dog was like what the heck, I started crying and went to my room...
They also were eating breakfast and I noticed Zack was sniffing around. I wanted to take him outside but my mum quickly took him and put him in his crate because they were "eating". Then Zack immediately pood inside.
I feel like giving Zack to someone as with my parents being here the dog will be retarded... (I know it sounds sad but it's true...)
They also let him play with plastic pepsi bottles. I told them to not give him that because when he grows up he'll just play with them / steal them... Their response? He'll grow out of it.
WHAT THE HECK!!!!!

Dogs have come out just fine in worse upbringings. But if you're truly giving up the stress isn't fair to you or Zach, you might want to get in touch with his breeder. I'm sorry you're having such s hard time puppies are supposed to a happy time with the occasional hair pulling moments.

Eta I let Gaia play with clean Pepsi bottles with the cap off but she's never stolen one, she knows not to take anything that wasn't given to her.

No, I'm not giving him away. It won't be fair to him.

Hide the clicker from your father. You don't have to use a clicker to train a dog. I rarely use it. I use Yes! as my marker. It doesn't mark as quickly as a clicker can but I always have my voice and and excited Yes! works quite well.

Apparently then need to learn from their own mistakes too. Next time, before you sit down to eat, take him outside.

I let Jax play with empty bottles, many of us do, and you are correct, he will take them even if there is something in them as he grows. He will not grow out of it because he is being taught it's ok to play with. I just take the caps off first and throw those away. there is a toy that you can buy to put a soda bottle in. I would look for one of those so he still gets to play with a bottle but the bottle is completely covered.

It is hard to know what to say. I am sorry your parents don't understand about raising a dog.

This may be a great opportunity to grow up and stand up to your parents in a calm assertive way and not go into your bedroom upset. Perhaps if they see YOU making the change from a boy to a young man they will listen more.

That means being calm, assertive, and making eye contact. You need to make sure your parents do the minimum, that means if there is a mess YOU clean it up, YOU do everything except for when you are at school.

I agree. Hide the clicker. Dad is only home during the weekends. Just bring it out when he is gone. The pepsi bottle. My advice is to not drink that garbage . But it is not a battle worth fighting. Take off the cap, the plastic ring and any plastic paper covering.....just don't leave it with him.
