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!
