Emotionally blackmailed!

He urinated on our taylor-made quilt. I scolded him and sent him to his bed. And oh, man, look how he got back at me. S/O haven't seen this picture yet.

You are allowing him to be the Alpha Male, stop coddling him, you are rewarding negative behavior.
Watch "The Dog Whisperer", most folks have no idea how to raise a dog.

Yes, BGnR. Beyond any doubt, he must thoroughly understand that I am the Alpha Male. And I have shown him who is the boss, i.e. scolding, ignoring, rewarding, and flipping him on his back (a poster here had suggested it.) and hold him down while giving him the "I am the king of the jungle". Still, admittedly, there are a few times I spoil him.

I'd like to watch "The Dog Whisperer". Alas, we cannot afford cable at this point. However, I will check with my friends who do so they can record the show.

A beloved dog will run both you and your house. The sooner you accept this truth, the happier you and your dog will be. While I say this facetiously, sometimes I am not so sure it's not the truth. As the "mother" of two wire fox terriers, I have my heart firmly held in their paws. Emotional blackmail? You bet!

Dogs can often act out when they feel neglected, and/or think they are not getting as much attention as they think they deserve, or as they are accustomed to. That is often the case when they tear up or defile your stuff, they are doing it to get back at you.

bite him on his ear (gently but firmly) while holding him down very firmly by the throat (not that firm), it's no different thatn how it's done in the wild, a little nip there - grab by the throat here, it works.






The Taoist Zhuangzi said, "Good order results spontaneously when things are let alone".
The sociologist, and historian, Adam Ferguson described the phenomenon of spontaneous order in society as the "result of human action, but not the execution of any human design".

Linda2,
My S/O has been warning me about inadvertently letting the dog run the household instead of her.

hwystar,
Man, no joking. And he has more than enough of attention. Between my 6 year old cousin and him, we are teaching both of them how to share the spotlight.

Thanks Monster. We'll manage to be more tender; sorry, we'll skip the gentle ear biting, however.

As people here and at Dealmac have advised you for more than a year, take him to obedience class.

Why not just mount him to show dominance?

Gutenberg,
He'll be attending a second class ... he's one stubborn terrier but a good doggie in general.

He likes cats. Before he came to live with us, his former housemate was a cat. He'll be getting a cat for companionship smiling smiley
