Pack leader with chronic pain, could 10month old see this as weakness? & contin
The past year I've had a car accident and have great deal of chronic pain, could this be why he always challenges me as he can sense pain as my weakness? I'm very assertive with him, he's not allowed on the furniture, he sits and stays until I tell him it's ok ex: for food, water, toys etc. he always has to work for everything and he is obedient most of the time but once a day will test me. Any advice??
That's ok, it is definitely annoying but he seems to have started this about 1 month & half ago since my boyfriend has started working away. He was always nippy as a pup but we always re-directed him to a toy and it had seemed to stop, but lately he started again and of course he is bigger now and i'm very petite and it's like he tries to over power me sometimes out of the blue, he jumps up and bites me, the more I say no & push him off he gets more wined up, eventually he will stop & listen to my commands. I have allot of chronic pain like I mentionned, I'm a very confident person and calm but stern with him but always wondered why he only reacts to me like this, thought maybe cause he sees that as a weakness, I don't know wha to do anymore!
I would get a stick or an e collar. See how he likes that. I think there is no need for a dog to ever be biting people, so just let him know that is not acceptable.
Also try to invent games or activities that you can do.
Stick and ecollar????
I do think ecollars have a place in training with some dogs but I also believe that those who choose to use them do so for the right reason and not before learning all that goes with this training method. Ecollars can cause horrid issues if used incorrectly and without knowledge.
Definately not the be all end all of training methods available.
