Yea, sorry I haven't written in a while, but puppy training is tough. I've been really focusing on giving the new dog all my attention and love and affection.... uh oh.....looks like someone wants to cuddle..... down, Josh, down! (someone is a little jealous!)
Well, without further delay
I could use some help with that one, especially from those of you with small dogs. We have shown him that we are reliable pack leaders and he is quite submissive. He sits on command, focuses on us during a walk, lets us walk in doorways before he does, waits for permission to eat and shows his belly when he wants attention; however, he might be a little too submissive and to show us he needs a confidence boost, he pissed on a wall to mark his territory! Ahhhhhh! Since he is a rescue, we have no idea what his history is and I am really trying to build his trust and confidence (without sacrificing my fine home goods!). Any suggestions?
