This little guy has you (and us too!) all fooled!
That face looks innocent enough,
He loves to snuggle,
Always happy to see you,
Loves the neighbors,
Charms the Vet each time he visits,
Happy to pitch in and clean up spills,
So willing to warm a spot for you on
Jumps for joy (on you) for no reason at all!
If you haven't guessed by now, we are having a few puppy "issues" around our home. The breaking point was when he wouldn't come in the house when my husband called him. I guess he just wasn't ready. The neighbor children were playing and someone (or somedog) needed to keep an eye on them. He was just the dog to take on the job ~ in fact he left our yard to make sure they were safe. NOT what he is allowed to do. He is totally harmless and just wants to makes friends ~ with everyone!
The training books are in the mail, I've been looking on the internet for suggestions, and I'm looking into a trainer.
Our last bulldog was SO laid back! We were totally spoiled. We laid the rules down and he never challenged them ~ just rolled with the rules, no questions asked.
Bozley has a few different thoughts on our so called rules. He apparently would like to make a few amendments. The real problem here is that we (the humans) think we are in charge and he (the canine) thinks he should be in charge. While that is a lovely thought, we have something a little different in mind.
So for the next few weeks, I'm dusting off my favorite phrase (just ask my children, they have threatened to put in on my headstone when I pass) "Choices, consequences." If you make a good choice, you'll enjoy the consequences. If you make a bad choice, you'll think twice next time. I guarantee it!
If you have to have a bulldog, I'd love to hear your training secrets!
