I looked up Aromas (Iíd never heard of it), and itís about an hour and a half from me if I go in the middle of the night, when Silicon Valley traffic isnít a nightmare. Itís not that Iím not willing to travel to help my dog, but I feel like there should be someone just as good closer.
Yes, I may end up going with Shane. I just thought Iíd check if someone had a better suggestion.
He is actually much better with the mouthing than he used to be, but isnít where I want him to be. He gets wound up, especially on the stairs, but sometimes playing with a toy or just for no reason I can discern. I believe he thinks heís playing, but it isnít fun for the rest of us, and Iíve tried spraying with water, yelling, remaining calm (as much as I can when a dog has hold of my ankle and wonít let go), grabbing his mouth, spraying with Bianca, saying ďouch!Ēdistracting with a toy. Some of those worked for a day or two, but not long term. Combine that with his tendency to ignore my commands if I donít have a treat in my hand, and I feel like I need help. He is generally good with my kids, but he went after one yesterday ( on the stairs) and scratched his leg with his teeth. No blood, but a raised welt and a crying child. He also plays too rough with the cat (though the cat teases him and sometimes gets what he deserves.)
