    Not Telling
  1. Ok I'll look into it, I also talked to a co-worker who has a 3 yr old bc female and asked him for some advice. He just told me to ignore it and clean it up, and increase the treats he gets for peeing outside(which I already do and pet and say good boy) so not too much changing there other than ignoring it.
  2. I do want to listen Laurae, but I won't take the advice of just giving my dog away. The first couple of times he did it, yeah I was mad and brought it up in a post in a different thread. Now I made a new thread, venting my frustrations(but changed my actions with him and anger not directed towards him after getting advice that he can't control pee). Obviously you can't tell a dog " oh hey don't pee" but obviously "no" to let him know that it is not good to pee does not work so I was asking for further suggestions. The dog isn't being asked to do much when he does it, just a sit or lay down. A
  3. Thank you for your honest answer and one that reaffirmed me and maybe others here that it's not just me having a problem with a dog that isn't scared OF me but of random times.
  4. Also please don't take me as being too thick headed to take your advice on things or angry about what you have to say. It just bothers me you people seem to have the mentality of "oh well the dog don't mesh give him away". "Dog doesn't herd with the right confidence, give him away". No giving away is not a good answer to give a new dog owner, it isn't one way to make friends.
  5. Alright I've read EVERYONE's post. Like I said, I do not tolerate a dog snarling..I won't. It also means I'm not giving up on this dog so rehoming or returning is not an option for me. The dog has been babied to the max with treats when acting good etc. This is my first BC but not my first dog. I have identified him being scared but for what reason? I came home today took him out etc then I got on the floor with him asked him to lay down and he put his head on me and relaxed etc. The dog is not scared of me! He seems to be scared of taking commands that's it hands down. He does not like to be
  6. He does that too...but literally just curls his tail up and lays over and pees on the lower side of his body. I'd love to ignore it but he will literally do this right after I take him out for a walk and he pee's multiple times. It's like he saves up ammo on purpose. Lately he has been getting extra benefits like sleeping on his bigger bed upstairs and having the full room of his crate downstairs while hanging out. But it's divided with the divider right now so it's big enough for him to lay down etc that's it. I guess he will be ignored when he does it but he's going to lose subliminal bonus'
  7. I feel like it's both(the growling). But the peeing on himself is what gets him a harsher tone of voice vs a nice voice. Do I use a penny can instead? The breeder is known on here but I don't want to bring the name into this. I want to work this out with this dog but when I started to look into this breed. I was looking for a smart/loyal dog and I have a semi-listener/scared/sometimes aggressive dog. I'm not being hard on him as I'm being stern just like I was with my other puppies as a kid and they shaped up and listened. If scared by the tone of voice(not yelling or crazy voice) they did wha
  8. I have my 5 mo old bc pup he is an awesome dog 95% of the time. The thing is he does not like to be scolded when he does something wrong and goes into 100% fear mode instead of just knocking it off and cooling off. The word "no" "down"(if he jumps up), hey!(when outside and I want his attention). I understand he is still a little guy but I am forced to give him a bath every time because he tends to lay down..roll over and pee himself. I have to give him a bath if not he smells like stale urine which his is very strong smelling(like if you had taken a lot of multi vitamins). I understand they a
  9. Yeah physically he is doing better but mentally is a whole other story. I had posted somewhere else about him peeing himself when being called by me in my normal voice but in a higher pitch he is ok. He gets under the chairs in the kitchen and doesn't want to listen to commands and goes in this panic attack mode. Today I got him out only because it was food time and when he came out I made him sit before eating. He wouldn't look at me or my general direction at all so I sat with him and pet him for a bit to relax him then made him look at me and he was in like total fear over nothing. Eyes dil
  10. *update* It's been a week and after icing his foot some and had it wrapped for two days with crate rest he's almost 100%. I'm 90% sure it was that joint near his foot that he sprained and was bothering him. He's crazy as ever the past two days.
  11. Yeah he is a very different pup. He is a lazy bum these days, sleeps a lot. Is not a very hyper puppy. The breeder even told me that before I got him that his brother was a nut case and he was more timid. But he's a very loving and loyal dog. I couldn't ask for a better first BC, plus I baby him hardcore. The only reason why he hasn't been to a vet was because he was putting some weight on it and seemed to be better, plus the last time I went they were trying to sell me on everything they could. And a normal visit just to say hello to them is $53. Granted I put my dogs health before money in a
  12. Also another question! He hit his foot on the tub(my fault for taking my eyes off him for two seconds) on Friday. That night he was fine, no limping, crying etc. The next morning he was hopping around like a three legged dog. He would put some pressure on the leg so I'm assuming nothing is broken. I made him crate rest Sat&Sunday as well as iced it for him a couple times a day and today he seems to walk normal other than if he picks up speed a bit its still sore. I'm assuming he just sprained his joint near his foot. Still no crying and grabs my hand with his mouth nicely no matter what fo
  13. My pup Rocky has been having a decent amount of eye discharge lately. Nothing too serious but every couple of hours I feel like there is a little glob I clean off. I currently feed him blue buffalo. (http://bluebuffalo.com/dog-food/lp-puppy-lamb?pf=1&brand=lifeprotection&animal=dog) I haven't seen any recalls or anything but could it be possible he is having an allergic reaction even though there are supposed to be no grains in this food? I am used to seeing eyes dripping in middle age and older dogs but have never seen it too much on puppies. Maybe I'm just over reacting but I just wa
  14. I apprectaie the feedback, even though your last sentence seemed harsh torwards me ha ha. He hasn't pee'd in fear again. He has gained a lot of confidence actually. I think he was just going through a weird funk for a couple of days. The past two days it seems he found his bark/growl when the trash truck comes by or a noise he doesn't know perks his interest. I've noticed he's been whining a lot lately too which I take as I want attention or I need to go out which is usually the case. We're moving soon so he'll have a bigger yard to play in which will be nice. I just hope he can acclimate to t
  15. A little bit of smoke but I had long stopped grilling, and he watched me the whole time and was fine so I don't think it was the smoke. And Julie I didn't put his face in it. I've never done that to him . I only told him no when he did it, and didn't use his name either. That's something I've been working on is not using his name when I tell him no or something. Obviously I knew it was a scared pee, just didn't know how to really react until now. I wasn't really mad it was more of a..gee I got to reprimand him for nervous peeing. I believe it was like Gideon's girl said. The water noise throug
