Default Kinda Bummed - OT

I am sure you all remember that my bf's son spent the night here weekend before last and we had a great time except for the fact that my little doggy is not use to being around anyone but my bf and I and he barked at the boy the whole time he was here. This is the weekend my bf gets his son again (every other weekend) and he was gonna bring him here again but the boy says he would rather stay at my bfs parents because of the doggy . I am glad it is not because of me but still, kinda bummed about it.


That is all.


Hugs
Michelle

Or better yet, teach the dog not to bark. There are a number of discipline techniques to teach a dog not to do an undesirable behavior. Not claiming to be an expert but there are lots of doggie books out there. My new puppy (he's a year old now) had a lot of trouble with barking but it is a behavior he has learned we don't want.

Just wanted to let you know I'm sorry you're bummed out & I wish there was something I could do.

The only way the dog is going to start getting used to him is having him around more, though. So it's a tough one. I wish I could be more help

Aww Michelle, that sucks!

I agree that the only way the dog is going to get used to the boy is to have the boy over regularly. Also a squirt bottle does wonders in behavior modification of an animal :-P

Ohh, Cesar's the best. Maybe try to socialize the dog more. Can you take him on walks, or sit outside where he might get used to seeing more people? Or, and I know this is bad advice, have the boy bribe that dog with treats a plenty. I swear, my dogs would leave us for strangers with treats in a heartbeat! :0

They are never going to get used to each other without being together. I say buy a bag of treats and give them to the boy! That will make them fast friends!

The squirt bottle is the great equalizer for my rat terrier....I don't even have to spray anymore. See SEES the bottle and knows what she's doing isn't acceptable...

You need to socialize your doggy... BIG TIME. Take him to pet stores, walk him and let little kids pet him, take treats with you and ask people to give your dog a treat. PRAISE THE LIVING HECK out of him everytime he show positive behaviour towards ANYWAYS. Use your puppy as an EXCUSE to get out of the house and take him EVERYWHERE. Good behaviour? Treat. No barking? Treat. Let's a kid pet him? Treat.

You can make this work
