And now Zack runs away from me because he thinks I'm going to put him in the crate ;( Because they always play with Zack and tell me to do the harsh things like put him in the crate which he doesn't like... I hate my family ;(

They get involved in everything, that's the joy of having parents . My dad doesn't even live with me and still tries to tell me how to do things the proper way, which is commonly his way.

He won't mess Zach up, just stay consistent in what you're doing and he will be fine. My boyfriend pays zero attention to my training and let's Gaia do everything she shouldn't or tells her to sit a million times. It's a work in progress but they'll slowly see the difference between Zach with you and Zach with them and think you're on to something. Enjoy the holidays :-)

GRRR Just as I was reading your comment doggiedad, I came out after I read it and what do I see? a puddle and a poo. I look around if someone is coming to clean it up or something, but no. I go into the living room and tell them and they're acting as if it's "not a bad thing" because they will clean it up anyway, but I'm trying to explain to them the more the dog doesn't do it in the house, the faster he will learn to go outside but obviously they don't care...

If they don't care then it's their problem. Keep your relationship with zack separate. You should stop telling them what to do, it pointless because they aren't listening anyways. Do things the way you want to do them when your with zack and he will grow up to see you as the leader. He will treat you with more respect than he will the others. Eventually they will probably get sick of dealing with the pee/poop/biting/jumping etc and will see that he doesn't do those things with you. They'll come around to see you were right all along. A full grown adult dog crapping all over the house and jumping on everyone isn't so cute anymore. Next time they say out him in the crate take him and play a fun game of tug and give him a treat to go in the crate. Make sure you spend more time playing with him and training him then you do putting him in the crate.

Unfortunately I think this is the only way until you are out of their home and can do things your way. For now take it as a learning experience with zack and watch how different he is with you when he is as an adult vs how he acts with them as an adult. Keep us updated.

Oh Adam, what a huge pain for you. You know what, just because you're 14 doesn't mean that's why they're not listening to you. I'm in my 40s and my mom still doesn't listen to me about my dog ... so don't think it's your age ... they might not like the fact that YOU know more about dogs than they do!

Keep it up, it's super frustrating I know. But just know you ARE doing the right thing.

Zach will figure it out when he's about 6 or 7 months old what's really going on. Borders are SUPER smart ... so just keep doing what you are doing, and in no time he'll have it all figured out!!

Merry Christmas to you, Adam and Zach and lots of joy in the new year!

Merry Christmas to everyone and thank you very much for all your support and time taken to answer my questions... I really appreciate them all and it warms my heart up I will spend more time with Zack for sure, and just 5 minutes ago I didn't even touch Zack, I threw a biscuit in the crate and he went in with no problems! But he still runs away from me thinking I'll put him in the crate, but he only runs away in the home, outside he is fine... :P I have some Christmas pictures of Zack coming soon, so make sure you check those out! Oh... and why do people spell his name Zach? It's not that I don't like it, I just find it weird ! Is it like an American way of spelling it?

I can relate to this a lot and I know exactly how you feel. Trying to a train a dog your way when you are a child in the family is next to impossible. You can't train your parents and you can't train your siblings because you have no authority over them, so they just ignore you and do whatever they want. Owning a dog in a situation like that is beyond frustrating, and in my experience it just doesn't get any easier and your dog will probably end up being the product of your family's 'training' unless you spend a lot of time outside of the house with your dog. But at least eventually you'll get to move out then everything will be LOADS easier and everything can be done your way .
