sweet_ceana Posted August 2, 2007 Report Share Posted August 2, 2007 I am woundering if anyone has any suggestions for taking back a little more control with my hard headed aggressive but beautiful dog that I love! ... she sure is lucky... j/k Ceana thinks she is the boss of everyone! She will plop on her back the moment I even give her the eye though..... she is just really pushing the line with me. She growls when she wants you to leave her alone so for the past month or so when she growls chris and i stop petting her until she starts rubbing her head on our hands obviously asking for it. The attitude however has become more frequent so today today when she growled (teeth and all the little brat) I leaned right towards her (but still stopped touching) and said excuse me?! really deeply and firmly! The look she gave me ! LOL it was utter shock and she was begging for forgiveness... so i ignored her for 5 minutes ( though she stuck herself everywhere I was) and then I forgave the growl. So that seems like it may work... any other ideas? Oh yes and for some un benounced reason she actually pooped on the floor in between the 3 hours from when Chris went to work and I got home from work! I know she did this to be defiant (this was before she growled), I walked in the house to day... there is an eagar wiggle but on the floor, I look to my right...see poo... look back, dog is on her back with her tail tucked in. So i gave her the naughty girl speech, flushed the poo, cleaned everything up and ignored her for 30 minutes. Are there anythings I should be doing in these situations that I am missing... or do I just have a dominant bitch who is the equivelent of a spoiled 15 year old girl? (15month dog =15 year old girl?) Oh and we do NILF, for kibble, for frisbee throw, before we go outside, in the car.... before just about anything! (**we stopped touching with the growl because it was a warning before a bite) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
